I work at a subaru dealer, and we have replaced a bunch of these. it seems the oil ruins the bond between the sleeves on the ends and the coupler. All replaced under warranty. It seems more prevalent in 2010+ though. I recently replaced on on a car with maybe 500 miles. I'd just replace it with a suitable one piece hose from an aftermarket company if it was my car.
