So you sold your Passat in it's first 74K miles during it's early use....just in time apparently based on VWs owner's experience

Yes Subies don't have the best reliability history, so what's the point to compare cars with less than average reliability???

The point is most consumers who spend $20-30-40 K on a motor vehicle expect it to be reliable....look at what Lexus/Toyota is capable of.... and they make right if problems do develop

I.E. Mercedes Bend Over recalled every 5 cylinder diesel sedan for crankshaft harmonic dampers failures but never did a recall on the Sprinter vans with the same motor and a higher failure rates
