Trying to figure out maintenance costs

How would you figure out maintenance costs per year for the new generation OBW(03-04)? What are the expected repairs(besides the infamous HG) on these vehicles and how does it compare to other vehicles like Honda, Toyota, Audi, VW etc?

I love my subie esp with driving in the snow. Just love the handling but I am also concerned with the reliability and 5 yr total cost of ownership. I once had a 93 Legacy which had manual transmission and I keep kicking myself for getting rid of it. Basically, I'm just trying to do a cost analysis of whether I should give up the wonders of AWD and switch to a cheaper more reliable fun summer car like a Honda Civic or VW Golf but suffer during the winters.

Any comments/advice would be greatly appreciated.
Please be merciful though :o
