How Long Will My Subaru Last?

Updated: Apr 30, 2021

Over the years, Subaru has maintained its reputation as a long-lasting vehicle.

Many Subaru High Mileage clubs have members with Subaru Vehicles with over 100,000 miles, 200,000 miles, and all the way up to 300,000+ miles. Kelley Blue Book named Subaru as The Most Trusted Automotive Brand for 5 years and counting.

With proper care of your Subaru, your vehicle should keep you safely on the road for many years and many miles. Generally speaking, with proper care and Maintenance, your Subaru can last well past the 200K mark. Therefore, everything related to the question: "How Long Will My Subaru Last?" depends on how well you are taking care of your vehicle and following the recommendations for Regular Service and Maintenance.

1. Driving Habits

The way you are using and driving your Subaru determines how long your Subaru will last. Some Subaru cars fail to perform just in the first few years, while there are many vintage Subaru cars still running smoothly with hundreds of thousands of miles on the odometer. The key to extending the life of your Subaru, largely depends upon the appropriate usage of the car. Some key elements to look out for are: Towing, Shifting, Braking, Driving in Severe Climate Areas, and Teenagers!

2. Oil Oil Oil!

Check Your Oil, Change Your Oil, and then repeat! The more attention you pay to the Oil Levels in your Subaru, the more you will help to Extend The Life of Your Vehicle. One of the most common problems we see at the shop, is with Subarus that are running Very Low on Oil or Completely Out of Oil. This can lead to costly (and avoidable!) repairs. Reincarnation Inc. The Subaru Guys recommend that you Check Your Oil Level every time you stop for gas to ensure Optimum Oil Levels For Your Subaru.

3. Commit to Regularly Scheduled Maintenance

All too often, vehicle owners drive their cars until something goes wrong and then end up in a real pickle. Many common problems can be avoided if you follow the Recommended Maintenance Schedule for your Subaru at the minimum! Just in the way that you might visit the Doctor for an annual check up (even if nothing seems wrong), you can save time, money and headaches by having your Car Inspected and Maintained by a Qualified Subaru Mechanic on a regular basis.
