Dropped by my Subaru dealer today to collect a Subaru umbrella I had ordered and while parking noticed a 12 mth old or so Forester being tested in the parking lot, huge clouds of white smoke gushing from it when the engine was revved, smelt terrible too! :(

I imagine someone will be getting some quite expensive warranty repairs then... Wasn't an XT, just a 2.5X

Still, on a car only 12 months old, I'd want to know the service history and the driving style of the owner before I immediately assumed it was a "typical 2.5 head gasket failure".
