Does the head gasket problem of the earlier Subarus hit this model as well?

Asked by Jul 31, 2011 at 10:00 AM about the 2011 Subaru Outback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my 2002 Forester had/has head gasket issues. If I select a new Subaru, am I facing the same problems?

The new Foresters from what I have heard through the Tech Bulletins is that they are pretty well made considering the first model year with the different engine, with the synthetic oil. But other than that I love mine that I'm driving temporarily.
