I know lots of turbo engines have issues some through no fault of the owner but I wouldn't hesitate to get another turbo Subaru at this point.

As for the batteries, yeah the OEM sucks. I had the battery replaced after 3 years on my 15 under warranty as I believe there was a TSB for it. The next one lasted a bit longer but still not great. My wife's 14 Forester had batter issues too so I replaced the OEM with an aftermarket.
