stults: it really depends on which model.The earlier one (E12) corrodes badly around door bottoms, wheel arches & the fuel filler area (this a very complex area to repair). The chassis only has one problem area, this is just in front of the rear shock absorbers on both sides where there is small metal deflector plate welded to the chassis. You must also check the steering rack for cracks on the casting. The front to rear water pipes are also prone to corrosion, but the can be easily replaced with 22mm copper pipe. Every thing else is usually trouble free if it has been maintained correctly. If you need parts to repair it they are usually available from Megazip.com in Japan, all parts are genuine Subaru, prices & service is excellent & they also accept payment by PayPal.
