At first, I loved this car - until it
needed maintenance. The
repair/maintenance costs for this
vehicle are excessive compared to the
two Nissans I also own. Also, I have
found out what apparently others have
also - that the engine is unreliable. I
have 97,000 miles on mine, and the
dealer says that the 3rd cylinder is
shot (less than 1/3 normal compression
present), requiring not just
replacement of head/rings, but the
entire engine at a cost of $5,000!!
Absolutely unacceptable for a car that
costs what a Subaru does. For sure my
last Subaru - back to Nissans/Hondas
(they run forever!)
All wheel drive a joy
Abyssmal engine reliability
Fair gas mileage
Suspect engine probs due to 4 cyl.
engine not sufficient for this vehicle
