Don't think I'll buy another Subaru

Vehicle

2002 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This vehicle was my first new car (2000 miles on it when purchased). The "all weather package" is sort of a joke. When the icy weather comes it doesn't clear/keep clear the ice from my windshield. The wipers completely don't touch the windshield after spraying fluid. Heated seats are a plus though. Has been leaking oil/coolant since 90,000 miles +/-. I was told I have a head gasket seal that is failing. I'm at 111,000. Oil smell is disappointing when at a light/in park with engine running. Recently had a fuel line leak. Window gaskets are horrendously loud! Front windows only. My husbands 98 Forester had to have the engine replaced at 50,000 miles! I don't know if I'll buy another Subaru.

Favorite Features

Heated seats. Runs great in the snow.

Suggested Improvements

Leaky engine problems bad and costly. Window gaskets loud-pricy replacement. $400 to replace.
