With 75,000 miles on it the head gasket had to be replaced. At 85,000 the power steering gear box. There is no trunk light. There is no lumbar support in the seats. My back is killing me. The visors did not have enough range to block the sun. It rattled constantly. The ride was extremely bumpy all the time. The engine noise was very loud. The stereo was terrible. Cruise control was not even an option. Stupid cup holder mounted on the dash board above the stereo.
I had my head gasket go with 75k on it as well.
I have the fuel line leak that the WRX models have as well.
There was a recall for the head gasket on some 2.5 engines but mine (and apparently yours) were not included.
The 02 RS is a nightmare to own.
Like you, I will never buy another Subaru.
