Thanks Elbert. I have seen Subaru split or even give 60-70% costs on repairs on other sites, although nothing like that is recent, to your point of (8 years) timing.

The statement that this leak is "normal" under any standard is garbage. Subaru knows their customers expect to keep their cars for at least 10 years on average. This is not a 3 year lease on a problematic Audi.

Right now this leak has essentially no impact on oil level. This is not in the discussion. The problem is that it will become an issue soon, when it's beyond any help from the manufacturer, even though it is a technical design flaw.

This will be a major factor in deciding our next car, which would have been an ascent. Now I am not so sure.
