2002 Subaru Liberty RX 2.5L from Australia and New Zealand
Awesome little sporty car
I had to put a new clutch in as soon as I bought it... It runs hot with the air conditioning on. And it uses a lot of water daily. Unsure why.
I love it. I love the shape, the power, the comfort. It's a fantastic little car. Best decision was to buy it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Sounds like a blown head gasket, apparently common on the 2.5L.

I wouldn't drive your car around much if I were you until you find out why you are losing water/coolant! To me the symptoms (internal water leak and overheating) sound like you have a blown head gasket or cracked head, which is very bad news. Known to happen on the 2.5 boxer if I am not mistaken. If this is the case, then the car won't last long if you run it with water or coolant in the engine oil!
