I have an 04 Subaru outback. We bought used at maybe 38,000. Within a few months of owning the car it developed a leak from the head gasket. It was still under the drive train warranty and subaru put their magic potion into it to fix. They did this twice. We opened a claim with Subaru of North America because we felt the problem was being "patched" rather than resolved. And predicted that once the car was out of the drive train warranty we would be stuck with having to repair. They at the time stated that their policy was to patch it 2x before they would redo the head gasket. This was in 07. We just hit 115,000 miles and have an oil leak coming from the head gasket. We called Subaru of North America-they are asking us to take the car to the dealer, have them diagnose, then do the repair work at the dealer. They then said they would send us a check-for something. They refuse to give us an estimate on how much they will send us a check for. Of course the dealer is quoting 2200 and our local guy quoted 1400. Has any one had experience with receiving a "reimbursement check" and thoughts on how much it could be? Not sure if it's worth our while but it feels very unjust.
