Most Reliable Cars in History
Model years: 1990Present,The toughness of Subarus (with their standard allwheeldrive) sometimes gets conflated with reliability, but theyre not the same thing: Just ask the many owners who had cylinderheadgasket failures.
Nonetheless, many keep on trucking, particularly for owners involved in higher education. Have a look in the parking lots of colleges and universities in the Northeast and Pacific Northwest, where they serve as the transportation of both professors and students. The only way to tell whose is whose is by the bumper and window stickers.
While Consumer Reports lists the 2005 Impreza wagon as a best buy for under $10,000, it also notes some model years of the Outback and Legacy as cars to avoid. Caveat emptor.
