The stealer showed me few pictures of some leaking parts when I went to them the other day - got it "fixed" under extended warranty.

Crawled under the car this morning and saw leaking oil still - booked the car in to be looked into again next Tuesday.

Starting to lose faith in Subaru - both of my Subarus have oil leak!

Just got the sTechnic guys to have a look at the car and they reckon the current leak is due to a splitted intake hose. They still reckon to bring it back to the dealer 1st as they had it witnh the problem initially.

Will see how it goes.

Just got the sTechnic guys to hoist the car up and have a look and they reckon the current leak is due to a splitted intake hose. They still reckon to bring it back to the dealer 1st as they had it witnh the problem initially.

Will see how it goes.

I've always thought that was pretty much par for the course with boxers, a tendancy to leak a bit after a while.

It used to be a golden rule with VWs that if you found one that wasn't leaking, you didn't get rid of it.

2014 is a bit young to be dribbling but. Mine didn't have any noticible leak until it was over 10 years old, now at 14 it's still not enough to warrant topping up between 5k services.

Going to get the seals done soon though.

I think in fact the leak in my outback started earlier (maybe 3 yrs old) but it stopped until last month.

My Forester had the head gasket done few years back and is now requiring roughly 1.5 litre top up between services.

My 99 Corolla still not showing any leak!

Wow. I don't know what else to say.
