Seeing as i Disturbed a few little hornets with the Pajero post thought I might add some facts and History about the Suburu ,might stir up some more. I actually owned one many years ago 1976 1600 Wagon and for 7 years it was a good reliable all-Roader untill I traded it on a Ford Telstar,
Anyhow here is the links for Suburu and the Star Cluster M45 or the Seven Sisters The Pleiades, Interesting reading

Astronomers estimate that the cluster will survive for about another 250 million years.
DOES THAT MEAN WE WILL HAVE SUBURU CARS THAT LONG

My father has had two Suberu Liberty's over the past years. The first one he drove until it had clocked up over 600,000kms then handed it down to my sister. It's still going strong. The second one has clocked up over 600,000kms now. The reason he does so many kms is that he is a country bookmaker and works anywhere from Mildura to the north, Warrnambool to the south, Echuca to the east...he lives in North West Victoria. He's been doing that for about fifty years and is now 80. My mum works as his bookie's clerk and I am the "bag lady". She's 75. The bookie is a dying race, sort of like the drovers and like some of the old drovers, my dad is going to see it out to the end. That's progress for you...all the old characters are dying out.

They were very reliable , not sure about the later models but yeh I liked the story about your Father , I don't remember how many Ks were on mine when I traded it but was nowhere near 600k might have been aroun the 200k. About Drovers , well check out the photo on my web pages , 2nd last row left side

Thanks for the reference Doug, it was a good read. We have an Outback and as it is only 5 years old and only done 55,000k's we hope it will last another 25years
