Yeah, with 85k now even Subaru would not sell you a warranty.

"... So, if I get hit with a $1500 repair on this I'm going to point out they sold me a warranty claiming it covered everything just like on a new car, and since they apparently lied about that I'll give them the choice to either eat the repair cost, or cancel the warranty. I mean if two weeks into owning it I have to shell out $1500 for repairs that aren't covered by the warranty, suddenly that warranty is a very bad deal...
Rethink that. A moon roof is a main reason for buying a Subaru Gold Extended Warranty, next to head gasket leaks. It will apparently cover the removal the head liner to access the replacement of the old motor, which is 90% of the cost. The moon roofs fail because they are left open under trees etc and get debris in the tracks. As the debris is swept back and compacted by the mechanism, it causes jams and resistance. This resistance breaks the flimsy plastic parts that attach the chain drive, and/or wears out the little motor.
The Gold Warranty excludes cable or linkage adjustments (or breakage), which are often part of the problem from the resistance.
