I bought my 2006 wrx with 51K. It now has approximately 89K. I've got Cobb Stage 2, eibach springs, spec stage 2 clutch. 18x8.5 Rotas. About to have the timing belt changed. The only thing to actually fail was the clutch switch and a coil pack. Got the. 60K service done. I would say that it runs perfect and run it pretty hard. This is my third Subaru. I've had an 04 WRX wagon and an 08 Tribeca.

Right there with you man, I have a 2002 with 108,565 on it and it runs perfect, only thing is I was told I will need a new driveshaft soonish, but he quoted me about 500$ which isn't terrible considering it could be worse

I just bought my 2002 WRX at 129k miles. I am the third owner and it runs like a champ. The timing belt was supposedly done at 80k but I am doing it myself just because I would rather know for sure that it has been done. Looking forward to many more miles from this thing
