Over rated junk

1999 Subaru Forester L 4dr Wagon AWD
Bought the vehicle new and at 70k miles the head gasket starts leaking just like my previous 1989 Loyale wagon did. Nice size car, my wife bought it over my objections because she wanted AWD. Replaced head gaskets twice and I know about the additive. Leaks tranny fluid. If you need something to squat on you garage floor every night this is the vehicle for you. I have 131K on it and if I could afford to get rid of it, it would be gone. So much for Japanese quality. Marginal gas mileage (20mpg) for such a small vehicle. Most expensive dealers to get anything fixed, shameful.
Put snow tires on it and it is a veritable snowmobile
C'mon solve the head gasket issue! Half the electronic stuff, cruise, overhead display etc. doesn't work and I'm not paying the ridiculous prices Subaru dealers charge to fix simple things like this.
