The biggest deal with those are the head gaskets! Make sure they are not leaking. Also it's very important to have the timing belt changed about every 100K.

Head gaskets but also timing belts. Use Subaru anti-leak in the radiator. The belts are not a problem if you change them on time and also change the water pump and idler wheels at the same time.
