there are two H6 specific tips:
1. change oil regularly. always true, but particularly so on this timing chain equipped joker.
2. change/check your serpentine idler and tensioner pulley bearings. they fail all the time. the bearings are $3 and take a matter of minutes to replace, it's an easy job. or cheat and get the DAYCO pulley for $10 at any autoparts store that works just fine, or buy the overpriced Subaru part.
and of course as with any vehicle change the transmission and differential fluids. truthfully it doesn't matter what fluids you use - just change them at some point.
i have two,one with 150,000. another just rolled 190,000 yesterday and i got it with 120,000.
not much to it, i plan on having mine for a long time. at 190,000 and i've never changed the diff or power steering fluids whoops. i'll be getting around to those shortly, they're on the list. i have checked the levels, those are fine.
