Paul Songy: Your article about Subaru Engines using excessive oil I find Very Helpful. I love the concept of the Subaru boxer engine and the balanced all-wheel drive, and I have been trying to resolve my concerns about that and the head gasket issue. We will now proceed with replacing my wife's 2007 Toyota Sienna at 127,000 miles having never been to a dealer for repairs other than recall retrofits done under warranty with a new 2018 Sienna.
I also have a Yukon with 220,000 miles that has had No major problems, does not burn a drop of oil between 10,000 mile change intervals.
I do not relish the thought that predictively I must spend $2500 at 100,000 miles of use of a "Reliable" vehicle.
