Agreed, only thing that I can think of is Subaru's at this age and mileage have head gasket issues.

100'000 miles is routine maintenance to change the head gasket as a precaution

I agree. I had a cracked head gasket, oil pan leak and a messed up radiator cap which are common problems with these models. I consider it getting checked by a mechanic.
