WRX's are very reliable. The only thing to remember is they need regular servicing. Do that, and adjust the cam every 100,000 klm ( 60,000 mls) and it should last yoy forever. Cheers bob Rona

also in hope to save parts that get hot, example turbo, let the car cool by idling for about 20-30 seconds before shutting it down. that give the turbo time to "rest" and will considerably help with the life span of said turbo.

The WRX's turbo will continue to be cooled by circulating coolant for about a minute or so after shutdown. So unless you've just driven it really hard, a cooldown is not necessary. To the OP, Subarus tend to be very durable if maintained and not abused.

The engine can collect moisture inside the block if the engine is not reaching operating temperature for a sustained period of time. This can cause a milky yellow substance in there and it also causes oil to break down quicker. At operating temperature most of the moisture will be taken care of with the heat.

Mine was a tank, always heard bad things about the tranny, never had an issue. Except for that one time when the car got stolen, but aside from that it was great.
