They've always had problems with oil burning. But it hasn't damaged my Forester. I have an independent garage down the street that has a Subaru mechanic. Just got the oil changed on Weds. They like to joke that I "drive a lot". Actually I need to contact my insurance agent because he's got me down for driving over 7K miles a year and I only drive around 3K.

American cars lost the market because they weren't built to last.

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.

Yup, my 16 year old Forester is doing fine in the monsoon we are enjoying though AWD can't do much about California drivers who can't drive even in dry weather.

    Well, Maharishi came to me and said that the utter beauty and dry
    pavement performance of the Mazda CX-5 does not compensate for an
    AWD system that will reluctantly send a little power to the rear
    wheels only after the front wheels have started spinning. Being
    in tune with Iowa's Laws of Nature will require the purchase of a
    Subaru. Jai Guru Dev!
