subaru does not select quality parts
when producing its vehicles. Head
gaskets went bad (expensive repair),
alternator went bad (dangerous
situation), wheel joint went bad and the
cylinder guides are now going, meaning
it will need the heads replaced (very
expensive repair). I will never
purchase another Subaru product and I
will be getting rid of this one
immediately. also found out many other
Subaru owners had to replace their head
gaskets and alternator for this year Subaru.
the manual transmission, the AWD and the
wagon body style.
choose high quality parts (and test them
please) for all aspects of the vehicle,
especially for the engine. The
alternator and head gasket were both
flawed and sub-standard.
