Question Who's the 'baru guru in the Denver area?

Greetings, after a long time away from this forum. My Forester has been so satisfying and trouble-free-- until lately-- that I neglected these discussions for awhile.

My attention has been diverted by our Golf TDI, which is the troubled genius of our automotive family. If I've learned one thing in the past few weeks about that car (and I've learned several), it's that you must find a master of the machine, a guru to guide you through its distinctive servicing needs. Especially after running beyond the 60K warranty. I can tell my own horror story about expensive, ineffective "repairs" at a well-regarded VW dealership, but it's just one of so many sad tales, as horrifying as some of my old SAAB stories. Luckily, I did tow the car a second time to an independent VW diesel guru who had it running within minutes. In a few hours, it was running better than new!

My question is, are Subaru's the same? Or do dealerships generally do a competent job? They should, since Subaru isn't known for a wide range of body types or engine designs. But I'd prefer to help out the little guy, for many reasons. He's putting my whole check in in his pocket, so he ought to be loyal only to me.

I have the CE light on for the second time in two months. I was told I may need an O2 sensor, but the car seems to run the same as before it lit this morning. It's at 64,000 miles, so this is a good time to strike a relationship with a trusted mechanic for the long haul.

Anyone know of a good 'baru guru in the Denver area?
