205000 0 I just bought the car used. Coolant keeps draining, is now at the shop for the third time. They keep thinking they have fixed the problem. The length of time is due to the dealer not being a Subaru dealer. Has been in shop this time 4 days. 
206000 1562 Gave up on selling dealer, took car to Sierra Service Center who fixed the problems. Not a coolant problem at all. Changed the catalytic converter, valve cover gasket, fuel injector kit, EGR valve.
