Just wanted to Share with anyone that looking at purchasing a Subaru. Please Do NOT without a warning. what was to be fixed in 2005 the Known Head gasket issue is still THERE! currently in my Family we own 3 Subarus 2007 forester, 2009 Outback and a 2011 legacy, The 2007 forester at 85,000 was noticed by dealer the head gasket was leaking oil and told me to monitor. Now at 115,00 I have antifrreeze leaking at the heads as well. seem to be all external but still the same $2500 to fix as the others. Once i noticed this I desided to look at the 2009 and 2011. And sure S*** the 2009 with 68,000 miles is leaking oil not to the extent of the 2007 but still leaking. The dealer may say seeping but whatever, last I know there was no specification on allowable oil to seep from Subaru. Guess I'll just figure the 2011 once it hits 60,000 it will start to. They market these cars as long lasting. Well any car will be long lasting putting the money in repairs as you do subaru. Thought Subaru also sold under Eco friendly how friendly is a quart of oil in 1,300 miles and a gallon of Antifreeze every 6,000 miles dripped unto the ground.
Just my rant! If i stop one subaru sale I will feel i good about my poor judgement to purchase one.
