Has anyone ever been to this page?

http://hometown.aol....z/subaruhi.html

I think we should add some kind of high mileage section to this forum if possible?

We could also come up with some stickers or badges like Volvo does.

Thoughts?

100,000 is nothing.
200,000 is pretty good.
300,000 is awesome :D

That is a great idea. Just recently I have been marveling at my car...a '90 Legacy Wagon I purchased in 1992 with 15K on the odometer. I have absolutely pounded on this car. It has seen me through countless moves and lots of off-road miles. I currently have 205,000 miles on the original motor w/no work having been done on the internals. Other then the occasional unsteady idle (who doesn't have that problem) it runs strong, pulling right up to it's redline.

My only complaints? struts sure are expensive, I'm on my 3rd set. I also replaced the tranny w/a used low mileage one last year.

She's got plenty of little dings, the paint is thin and chipped, my dogs ate the carpet in my cargo area but I love her. As we speak my wife is driving it with a front door for our house loaded in the back with the hatch CLOSED.

I love this car.

Subaru high mileage club supports their website through the sale of bumper stickers. I think they're one dollar. I have one on my 98.

I wish you didnt have to be 100% original to register there... I replaced my block/heads because of excessive blow by (cause unknown) afew years ago, but everything else is still original (tranny, CV's maybe?, bushings definitely :lol: )

I'm shooting for 400K before I retire it. At 295K now.

my '93 Turbo Legacy is currently at 232k. Pretty damn good for a MY/Mileage combo.

My dad was part of volvos club. He had a green Volvo DL wagon with over 300k before it died. The turbo coupe has 250k but rebuilt engine.

I have also seen this site before, but I have replaced my heads due to misuse. Any way, I'm at 145 and plan to keep dumping green into it until gas propelled cars are replaced with something better, or I die, what ever comes first. Even if they are replaced, I'd probably just house it for all of the remainder of time.
