Read the reviews, don't buy a boxer

1997 Subaru Legacy Outback 4dr Wagon AWD
Car was OK for a few years, then lights in some of the dash went out, and on the heated seat switches (but only on high?). Brakes go often and cost $1000 for rotors and pads. Struts feel like they are bad but have not confirmed. Water pump, cam seals, head gaskets etc. have been replaced. Now, like MANY other reviewers, the head gaskets blew out and I am looking at $2,000 to fix them. The front end bushings are also shot - $400. What gives? This car is driven lightly for under 100K miles and is garaged!
AWD, adventure vehicle.
A better engine! Better fit and finish, better reliability. Longer warranty. How come KIA has a better warranty?
