This is another one of those "Should I buy" messages.
We are looking seriously at a 2010 2.5X Premium but did have some concerns.

1. The big concern is projected reliability. Some say Subaru is average, some put them up there with Honda and maybe Toyota. No manufacture is perfect and even the best can have cars. I've heard some people say they would never buy another Subaru, others lovethem.

2. How long have they been using this engine and have the head gasket issues been worked out?

3. Is the AWD system reliable and what can go wrong with it? Would it be expensive to fix?

My main concern are the big expensive problems. We could buy an extended warranty, but if it is a good company we should not have to.

I see this is your first post, so welcome to the forum from Oregon! :biggrin:

I'm on my second Forester & I've had no shop repairs, other then the usual scheduled maintenance that I didn't want to do myself. :smile:

Good luck on your pending new vehicle purchase. :wink:
