Summary:

Worse reliability than an American car

Faults:

Cooling system leaks at 5000 miles. Head Gasket blew out. Stranded me 300 miles from home.

General Comments:

Horrible to back up. Over 50% rear in blind spot and impossible to judge how far back you went. This is an UN-SAFE car/suv in reverse.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I suspect that your coolant was leaking due to some events, and that in turn will surely blow your head gasket when engine running without coolant.

I am curious what eventually you find out about the cause of your coolant leaking?

Your comment about American cars is totally off base. Subarus are generally reliable as well as most other cars now made.
