Today, a friend alerted me to a serious oil burning issue Subaru is having with their current engines, and the company is being a dick about it. With that going on and the closest dealer being in Cedar Rapids, I'm going to pass on the Subaru. I may just see what the local Ford/GM dealer has. That same friend just got a front wheel drive Ford Escape, and he loves it. Couldn't possibly be worse than my rebuilt, salvage title, 2003 Pontiac Vibe with its nifty, not yet recalled shrapnelizer airbag in the steering wheel.
