Our Subaru Impreza was purchased in May of 2013. So it will be 5 years old in 4 months. We have made many cross-country trips with it, and it has over 180,000 miles on it. Mechanically, it has been very dependable. We did have to put in a new clutch in 2016. Otherwise pretty much routine stuff. But the front bumper is a piece of junk. It has cracked repeatedly - it is all plastic and gets esp. brittle in cold weather. On this trip part of it actually blew off somewhere between Lusk, WY and Chadron, NE !!
