2006 Subaru Legacy B-Sport wagon - what sort of mileage do these start costing a lot of money ?

If it has a good service history they can go for ages, and ages like most modern jappas.

as above depends on service history.

As above totally depends. My old 85 Corolla GT was at over 370,000km and didn’t leak nor use a drop of oil. The newer FXGTV which I replaced it with uses and leaks oil and has half the mileage.

Whats a lot of money?
I would count on a $1000 bill at/about every 80-100k (closer to 100 in fairness) -that being for rocker cover gaskets/cam belt/water pump

Earlier Legacys from the 1990s were known to be a bit fussy and require a lot of maintainance, but the 2006 model should be very reliable, the EJ20 engine being a well-proven design. The 2006 will be the 4th gen and probably the facelift model which is nice. If it is getting on for 200,000kms then it should still have quite a lot of life in it, but as above it depends on it's service history.
