What happens when a Subaru starts acting up on a road trip? Do you have swap 10 different electro-plastic components? Hoping one of them magically fixes the problem?
I can fix my carbs and distributor with bubble gum and duct tape….while your busy digging out laptop to diagnose a chaffed wire.
…which gets me into the reliability debate again. The subaru engine may be longer lasting or whatever. But the reliability is only as good as the install/swap. Cables, wires, and hoses rattle loose and wear the same regardless of the engine manufacture…subaru just has a lot more of them.
