Hey all, I have been asking around my circle of friends for their opinions and might at get yours as well. My 2009 Subaru Forrester w/ 165k miles on it need some major repairs. (right after I just spend $1000 getting all the wheel bearing replaced of course) It needs a new head gasket, timing belt & water pump. I have been quoted from a couple places but the lowest was $2300.00 There are also some other things that need fixed as well but are not pertinent to keeping the car running, for example my AC is broken. So, it leaks oil from the head gasket, not at a alarming rate, but enough that I have to keep a close eye on it. Also, it shudders/wants to stall when sitting idle on any sort of incline. So I figure I have a couple options here. 1. Keep a eye on the oil and run it as is until shes dead. 2. Bite the bullet and pay for the repairs. I was told that I could I could potentially run it to 300k miles after these repairs. 3. Sell it and my 95 Chevy Silverado and get something else, however this would involve car payments which suck. What do you think? Are there other options available that I'm not thinking of? Thanks.
