Welcome!

You will find that Subarus are very reliable with regular maintenance. Check out your owner's manual as it will have a schedule for all the regular maintenance that you need to do or have done.

T2C welcome to the club (cult? LOL). Maintance wise, you should do the typical stuff, oil 3k - 5k, rotating tires is important for tires and diffs. changing the differential fluid every 30k is a good idea and easy to do. If you have a manual tranny change that fluid every 30k as well, more often if you like. Check brakes and rotors and change the timing belt and crankshaft seal every 40k - 60k. All can be done by you to save money. Timing belt and crank seal will cost $400 - 600 at the dealer. Jiffy lube can probably do the rest.

As far as reliability I have 208k miles on my '96 and its my third suby with more than 200k on the orignal motor and tranny and i drive pretty aggressively so enjoy your RS for a long time.

Visit subaru.com and view the maintenace schedule posted there. It is more accurate than your owners manual and the advice given here (no offense). For more info, search the Service & Maintenance Forum, especially the sticky/FAQ posts at the top of that forum.
