I was wondering for those who have owned/researched both, if an alltrac would be just as reliable as a GT?

Assuming you can find an alltrac in good condition and do not mod it, they are pretty much the same. Both of my ST185 are as just as reliable as my old GT.

I had amost not problems with my car when it was stock. Stock turbo made it to 130k. Car would had lasted longer if I did not throw any afterm arket parts on it. Toyota made their cars to last. They designed them within limits to be around a while.

so basicly 5s is more reliable

but as anything usally more power leads to more broken/blown parts

and then theres the 22re............ :wiggle:

Turbo = heat
Things in engine bay tend to deteriorate easier/faster.
So, 3SGTE needs more attention than 5S
Also, people tend to drive it harder.
One thing for sure, it is much more difficult to work on 3sgte equipped cars than on 5sfe equipped cars.

There are more things to break so of course that affects reliability, but it's still a Toyota. Things tend to break more often in the Alltracs because of how they are treated, turbo does that to a car.

well you know turbo increases pressure, thats one strike, and increased pressure means more heat, theres another. I dont really know though, a turboed engine not overdone can last quite a while

I really haven't had any issues with my AllTrac mostly just doing things that need fixing due to age, but nothing truly broken. I can say that in the last year and some that it has never let me down :D

That's funny. I hear a lot of Vette owners say the same thing. I bought mine from someone with the same approach. Waxers are my favorites :D


ATTN STi and Evo people, Turbo All Wheel Drive is not new!

There you go. But Subaru has built their whole reputation and livelihood around it. Big difference. Toyota made the AllTrac as a specialty car and then dropped it. So to think they are as dependable as a Subaru is stretching it.

The later ones with the bugs worked out should be just fine as long as you don't flog them and mod them up. Take them Rallying and be prepared to rebuild them.

I think I'd buy a Subaru over a Toyota AllTrac. Yes, blasphemy I know, but they are plentiful and so are the parts.

I dont think he is saying there better or anything, just that toyota has been doing it long before they have. :slap: how dare you say that? Take a New subaru sti=33k-35kish good cond. st185=7ish give or take. and you have a good 28k to spend in upgrades :D or save. But i am in love with toyotas, so that is prolly why i would do that.:)

I'd love to see someone putting an MBC on a WRX when it is 17 years old.
Let see if it will last longer than an alltrac with an MBC at 14 psi.

I love my toyotas but I have always wanted an sti, I got to drive one and I don't know if anything will be quite comparable now.

Riddle me this though...STI vs Alltrac reliablility(given they are both brand new.)

it depends on what type of driving you use to know wich car is better
