2000 Subaru Legacy B4 2.0 Twin turbo from Australia and New Zealand
Awesome car, if servicing is kept up
Diff failure, replaced. quite expensive.
Timing belts due to be replaced.
The car is quite awesome to drive. I notice the major turbo lag through gear changes every so often.
Sticks to the road like glue, and for a car of its size and weight, it does very well.
I've owned it for nearly 2 years, and have only had the diff fail on me. Keeping up with the regular servicing, and not driving it with an iron foot, has kept this car in prime condition.
The car is amazing on long trips, comfortable, etc. around town not so much.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Start a savings plan for the 100k service on one of these!
Nice looking and clever engineering, but complex, some mechanical items fragile and they're not cheap to run. Fun to own but expect European car maintenance costs.
Actually, our 5 series has been cheaper to service than the Blitzen it replaced and less frustrating to drive with no yawning turbo lag (in the auto model).
