I am a new Subaru owner. I have a 1998 Forester with only 48K miles and has had all Subaru maintenance as per schedule, I bought the car used and do know the original owner and have all maintenance invoices. The engine always is noisy when first starting. It sounds like piston clatter. After warm up it purrs like a kitten and after 200 mile trip there is still NO NOISE. Smooth running and quiet. Good fuel economy and no oil consumption.SO ??? any ideas?? or helpful information. I did talk to a local Subaru owner and he said his has always been that way too. He has a 2000 Forester with 93K miles.
also as a NUBEE what is with the term fozzi
