Head gasket needs replacement at 79,000 gentle miles!! $1800! Outrageous. It is apparently a very common problem, despite what ANYONE says about the issue having been resolved from 2005 and newer. I'd expect that from 1979 Chevy Chevette, not a 2006 Subaru
Car is only mediocre at every level. My 1992 Camry (that I kept as a spare car till a couple years ago) did everything better (except for winter traction of course).
Transmission shifts poorly (again, my 92 Camry shifted more smoothly and confidently).
First and last Subaru.
My Toyotas and Nissans have all gone over 250k and never needed a head gasket replacement.
DON'T BUY A SUBARU!!
Ok leather seats.
Great in snow with studded snow tires.
Subaru should have Honda, Toyota, and Nissan supply their engines.
