Question xB Longevity

Hello. I am new to the site and am curious as to how long a 2006 xB can last. it has 154,000 miles which are from everyday commuting. We have been really gentle on the car and there has been almost nothing wrong with it. Can I expect it to pull out 300,000 miles?????

200,000+ should be fairly easy. 300 is doubtful. You are bound to have a repair worth more than the car.

He may be wrong ^ Subaru's do it all the time. All they have done is timing belt and such on the engines and they last forever. Just take care of them.

It's a great car and with proper maintenance it might get you all the way to 300K with few problems.

However, I think at the ten year point I'd find a replacement for the xB1 and either sell it or drop it down to a second hand car.

My 2006 xB1 has only 38K but even with such low miles I don't know if I'll keep it as my primary car once the ten year mark hits.

Mines has 220,000 on it right now and i drive it hard. Only problem i have so is i'm about to replace my front passenger wheel bearing for the second time. 300,000 should be no problem and 400,000 is not out of the question.
