Tell us if you modded the engine and how many miles is on it.
And what condition is the engine.
I'm thinking of getting a RS but I need a reliable car and I don't know if it is. I use to have a civic but it got STOLEN. So help me out and post your miles.

I just turned 15,001 miles when I arrived at the meet we had this last Sunday. Its a 99RS but it sat in storage for three years so that doesn't really count.

2001 Impreza 2.5 RS
Current mileage 36,000 (give or take)
Moded milage 31,000

Click on the link below, I had those parts put on at the sametime. No problem since. I don't consider the CEL to be a problem because I understand why it is on. Usually goes away when I take long trips. otherwise it doesn't bother me.

2000 RS, 34k, 29k with mods. Intake, filter, exhaust, rear swaybar, front struttower bar, short shifter. No problems with the car at all. And I've run it in 3 rally-x's, and had some fun on logging roads with it, too.

My g/f's '00 RS sedan has ~34,000 miles on the ticker. The only problem was a toasted flywheel and clutch which they replaced under warranty roughly 3 months ago. Everything else has been great!

2001 with 19,650 or so. Currently on forged engine build. Smashed #4 cylinder with boost spike at 15,000 miles or so. So, stock motor lasted for 15,000 miles. Heavily modified engine has lasted over 4500 miles or so. So far so good. Going to 16 or 18 psi soon...;)

I’ve put on 26,000 in 9 or 10 months. I'm kind of sick of it already. I'm looking at some Porsche 944 Turbo S and 968. If I find one that is a good deal I'm selling the Scoob.
