You are correct, there was a recall on those engines. Here is a pretty lengthy article about the situation - http://www.autoblog.com/2008/04/07/subaru-issues-stop-sale-on-all-models-equipped-with-turbod-2/

hi there, thanks for your interest........I'll go in and find that website. .........I'm in Australia and we are only being told the good things about the XT, until we say that we heard something about the problem.........seems to be some time in mid May we'll hear anymore about what happened, perhaps never........I think we'll buy one anyway. - Thanks again 'lightGear' :-)
