While it sucks that it happened to you, it's not indicative of a Subaru in general.
Now if you want some good reading I can link you to the TDI club. They have plenty of threads on broken stuff on the newer VWs and they aren't 5 post threads, more like 100's.
Every make has problems, but overall I think Subaru is in the top as far as least number of 'issues' and reliability. So far it seems the shimmy has been the worst one I've read about and that seems to be fixed.
