5. With Subarus, just avoid Boxers with Turbo, GDI, VVT and Auto Stop/Start if you keep over 100K miles

That combination is really hard on a flat engine Boxer.

If you plan on having the car for a couple hundred thousand miles, or for two decades, keep with a normally aspirated version and disable that Auto Stop/Start feature which is abusive to starters, ring gears and any engine.

When I take my Outback Touring to the dealer and get their free loaner Foresters, they right a little more nosily and rougher. The Outback is the best of both worlds.
