After taking great care of my 06 xt, the dealership recently notified me that I have low compression, worn rings and cylinder...basically my engine is shot after 136,790 miles!(check engine light was on) I was really planning on putting over 200k on this car. I spoke with Subaru of America and they are willing to give me $500 towards a new car...I was hoping for a little more. The dealership is only going to give me 2k for my car. The car is running fine....right now. Not sure if I'm going to stay loyal to Subaru after this. I really like the new Outback and test drove the 2.5i Limited and I like the MPG's but I'm used the power (having the XT). I want to test a new 3.6R to feel the difference(I tested the 3.6R in the Tribeca, but it's a bit heavier). Has anyone had this problem with worn rings and cylinders? Also, anyone had any bad luck with the 3.6R?
