There's already a few of these threads floating around. At 30,000 a year, it will soon be me.

I know my dad worked with a guy that had a late '70's Subaru that had over 275,000 miles on the original clutch and most everything else for that matter but I'm not sure who has the highest. On most of the newer Subarus (1990+) 250,000+ isn't uncommon.

When I sold my 93 Impreza L wagon 3 years ago it had almost 215k miles, original engine/drivetrain.

I've got an 03 wrx with 126k on stock clutch so far. It's been stg2 since 60k and just got it tuned. Maybe a 16g in the future that should wear out the stock clutch, lol.

Default Fear the old Scoobs!

This is a photo from usmb (screenshot I saved to my pc).

http://img408.imageshack.us/my.php?i...mileagepu7.jpg

559112 k miles and still running. I believe this was last year.
I had reason to believe mine racked over once when I first got it. The entire driveline had things replaced and odom said 108k (premature replacements for the miles) and a paint job, and a title from alaska with no records inbetween. It turned out to be just 108k and nearly beaten to death in the cold weather environment.After a decade with old schools (my first was already 10 years when I got it!)
I mean this from the core of my mechanical existence, as a former aircraft mechanic, a wild pit man who serviced 1500+ autos at a quik lube and my own custom engines...
Old schools without egr and silly constipations are going to break a world record, and I will put a wager on it. There is already several, including a cross continental trip with an ea82 in an airplane never written.
The newer ones claiming to have this record are clearly narrowed down into perfect environments. Old Schools are anywhere anytime for a very loooooong time.

Outback Sport

http://hometown.aol.com/nv1z/subaruh...eage.html?f=fs

^ Click on the Outback and read up. Basically there's some guy in Sweden or Scandinavia or wherever with what looks like an '00-'02 Outback that has over 800k km (over 500k mi). The only major repair he had was a headgasket at 680k km. And get this, he used the car primarily as a towing vehicle delivering "caravans" (camper trailers?). Pretty crazy.

I hope I get that kind of mileage out of my OBS. It'll be 2 years in June, and I'm already at 51K. Actually now that I think about it, that's not too bad. Last June I had 32K. I just basically want the motor/drivetrain to hold out long enough so that I can swap in a turbo diesel and 6MT when it dies. Just gotta hold out long enough for A) the turbo diesels to make it to the US, and B) someone else to do it and write it up for me.

There have been at least two 90-94 Legacies on LegacyCentral that have over 400k miles.

The speedo cable on my 79 is broken, and the odo says 37,337. I'm sure it's rolled over once, and the PO told me he put an estimated 3k miles on it while he had it. But who's to say? It could have 900k miles on it for all I know.

Default 226,500 1998 Impreza L

I have maintained the CRAP out of the car since new, ALL fluids (with full synthetics) per severe schedule; maintenence parts as required by mileage schedule. I have only spent 360.85 on REPAIR parts since new- 1 set rear wheel bearings, 1 wiper transmission arm, 1 speed sensor, a rear gallery cover (did the clutch prematurely @ 170k w/ gallery cover.......but tranny was out for gallery cover replacement...I couldn't NOT do it for my own labor reasons.)

Until March 2007. Tranny decided to start howling, as did a rear wheel bearing and the rear differential; prop shaft is 'stiff' at the u-joints, too. I fully expected it to go 250k + w/ no driveline issues, based on past Subies I've owned, but it missed the mark.

I still wish I could have bought two Imprezas.

Any one have a diff and shaft? I've lined up a tranny....
