Subaru continues to disappoint me. I probably would've saved a whole lot of headache by buying a Honda! The latest hit is that while spending nearly $400 today on routine maintenance stuff (like battery and belts - no complaint there though, expected expense) I learned that I've got a head gasket leak which means that according to the dealer I've got a looming $2300+ repair in the near future. I've already had to spend money replacing bad wheel bearings and a few other things that shouldn't happen pre-100k miles. (I'm at about 79k now.) I was already planning on new tires and new front brake pads and rotors in the next few months - now I can add the head gasket replacement to that. Grrr...

So, is the dealer quote way out of whack? Seems high to me.
