Well, we haven't owned any old Subarus, but at comong on seven years, our Forester has no rust, and I've never heard of any post 1990 (or earlier?) Subaru suffering catastrophic suspension failure in the way that these cars suffer spring perch failures.

Driving a Subaru (or most other brands, for that matter) is nothing like a Mercedes. I am willing to invest time, energy and money into maintenance, repairs and all kinds of things for my cars, but when critical suspension mounting points rot away creating a potential life-threatening hazard, I'm thinking I've had enough.

"Engineered like no other." I'm beginning to wonder if that is a good thing...
