Plus when it's snowing, Subarus are the only cars still driving around. The others are all stranded at home in the garage.
They're just not exposed to as much road salt.

In places that don't use salt that often (such as interior Alaska), rust on a Subaru that is partial cars running around still, but not many.
Whoa.... I am not sure what happened to that sentence, but there was probably another line worth of text there when I typed it!
I meant to say "...rust on a 20-year-old or less Subaru is pretty much non-existent. There are some older partial cars running around still, but not many." In other words, even in interior Alaska, old Subaru vehicles rust with vigor.
#37 of 38 04 Suburu Legacy - Worst Car
Jul 20, 2011 (5:12 pm)
This is one of the worst vehicles I have owned. It needed a new short engine block at approximately 43,000 miles. I have had oil pumps replaced twice, 3 years apart. There have been oil leaks. Now, at 99,000 miles, I have the infamous white smoke blowing from my tailpipe, which may be indicative of the gasket issues many of you have discussed. Unfortunately, I lost my job & can't afford thousands to fix it or buy something new. I have heard about these cars lasting hundreds of thousands of miles but this one will be lucky if it lasts to 100,000. I can tell you when I can buy one though, it won't be a Suburu.

I'm the 2nd owner of one of the 30th anniversary SUS models made in 1999. I currently have 231,000miles with no problems other than the everyday in and outs. Only thing that needed a replacement so far was the alternator which is probably due to the high load my set up demands. I hope it can maintain its longevity at least until i can afford a newer Sub
