Are these problems specific only to WRX Wagon or the same is applicable to 2.5 TS Wagon?
The missus has an '02 OBS and let me tell you, the car is perfect. Its just over two months old and has 9000 miles on it. No CE light, no problems, nothing. It is great. I don't expect to have any trouble with it, that is why I didn't get a turbo, maintenance is lethal, and I travel to several remote areas that I just couldn't trust the availability of premium fuel.
Plus the car has the same drivetrain as my '01 RS that has 32k miles on it. No CE light ever and zero warranty claims. This is why I've had 6 Subarus.
As long as you perform scheduled/basic maintenance, the car will run forever.
