Hmm. Not THE Mr. T. Never owned a heavy gold chain to put around my neck. My hair is not long enough to put it up. Don't mind flying so much. But, I like it when a plan comes together. Thank you, George Pittard.

We have a 1996 Outback that we bought new and now has 170K miles and a 2013 Outback that has 75K miles. Both have been pretty good to own, but I do have concerns about the 2013 lasting a long time. It makes a lot of noise (piston slap?) on startup that I really don't like. Other than that, it has been a great car and we are quite happy with it. Since I do all the post warranty work, I like the engine compartment design that gives you good access to just about everything. You don't even have to jack up the car to change the oil! The headlights are a pain to change, but once you have done it and have some extra plastic fasteners, it goes quickly.

I would recommend that anyone with a Subaru watch the oil level like a hawk and not rely on the low oil warning light. There are many reports of low oil related problems and I know that Subaru has a class action lawsuit against them on that subject.

Subaru fender liner fasteners can be found on Amazon:

I have had good luck with Osram headlight bulbs, but I only have one car to service, so I defer to Bob's professional experience on this.
