2006 Subaru Forester X Premium package 2.5L non turbo from North America
Subaru reliability is a myth
One head gasket replaced under warranty, started leaking again within 5000 miles, still leaking. Dealer won't fix even under warranty.
The 2.5L non turbo cars have a design defect that will eventually cost the owner some serious cash, especially if the head gasket really starts leaking and starts a fire from all the oil leaking out.
Don't buy one!
AWD is incredible in the snow, reasonable MPG, can't think of anything else good to say.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
