4th Soob. Bought it used at 2 yrs old with 40k miles Fast forward 4 yrs now at 100k.
The last 2 yrs have been a nightmare.
Brakes, headlight bulbs, CV's, spark plugs, axles, 2 Oxygen Sensors (in December '10, failed April
'11 - part under warranty-not labor.
The car was great to drive in inclement weather, & was a looker, it was a mess under the hood.
We've spent $2200 in the last
Took it in for brakes AGAIN last week only to find out that we had a bad head gasket.
3.5 qts of oil in 2000 miles!
Estimates $1700, plus impending timing belt, water pump & steering pump $1200 more.
Just traded for a new Forester.
Praying this one isn't possessed by demons!
AWD, moonroof, heated seats, upgraded sound system, dual climate control, tons of cargo capacity. Great looks.
Revamp Oxygen Sensors, and pay total bill when part fails in less than 3 months.
brakes need examined,
city gas mileage needs looked at.
