    This news is a living nightmare.......due to this publicity, and the fact that Subaru does not appear to be taking this seriously, at this time, my car is virtually WORTHLESS!!! Dear God, please make this go away without anyone getting hurt or worse!

    I just bought my 7th Subaru, my 6th Outback. It is still the best snow car I have ever driven.

    Oh my. My wife, my son, and my sister all have Subarus. They love them. I was thinking of buying a 2015. Maybe they should come out with a statement and say, we goofed, we‘ll fix them all at no charge. Kinda like what GM did.

    1 quart per 2000 miles id "within acceptable levels". Stupid statement like this only hurt the company. I was considering a subaru to replace my its no tough choice. Hopefully this will bankrupt the company so it re emerges with better management
