Head gasket leak...repair or trade in?

So my dealer tells me that my '05 with 140k miles on it has a head gasket leak with a severity of about 3 out of 10. Getting the dealer to replace the head gasket is about $2,400 or so, and I haven't really found a private shop in the area that I really trust to do something this major. Question is ...

Re: Versatile Bed accessories

I had thought about doing exactly the same thing for a bike rack on mine. If you've got the dimensions easilly available, it would be nice to know.

Re: Bed Covers

I think Subaru offers something similar to that ARE cover as a factory option, don't they? I think they call it an Outback.

Re: Baja Mod Status

I really dont understand what those "resonaters" do. Whats the engineering behind it?...and...any bad effects to the motor if these are eliminated? Are these resonaters baja specific, or are they on all those boxer engines? Resonator boxes are installed on just about every modern production car. Th...

Re: Dead Speaker Mystery

I too broke down and bought a new set of 4. Took me all of about an hour to replace the full set. I'm about 90% sure that it's the coil in the speakers was dying. I didn't bother testing it on mine, but if you really want to know for sure, stick a wire into each of the leads in the connector and tou...

Re: Items For Sale, Traded my 06 Baja Sport

Where did you store the full size spare? I thought that the storage spot for the spare wasn't big enough for a full size tire. Do you have a picture of the kayak carrier that you can share? A full size spare on Subaru OEM Rim. Tire has good tread left. Will sell for $100.00 A custom made ladder rack...

Out in Shenandoah and the George Washington National Forest, and a little further out in the Manogehela Forest of WV there are a lot of fireroads and general dirt roads t...

Dead Speaker Mystery

I've got an '05 with only one working speaker. Everything is stock, but one by one, the speakers in the back doors died, then the speaker on the driver's door died. I suspected that the clips to the speakers had probably fallen apart or something, but I took my doors apart today and they seem to be ...

Re: Stock front license plate bracket

Yeah, the OEM plate that I picked up when I moved to VA was a flat plate with some rubber bumpers on the back side of it so that it stands just off the bumper.
