I have a 2006 Outback 4cylinder wth 140k mi and blown gaskets due to overheating problems. Is it worth it to repair? Sounds like a problem inherent to Subaru's. I feel so burned.

Margarite1 - Don't know if you could have prevented "over heating", or did it happen very quickly and you had no options like turning on the heater full blast or stop driving and pull over. Did you run out of coolant, water pump or thermostat failure or radiator failure. If it is any comfort to you, a lot of people usually have to do head gaskets around 150,000 miles. Be sure to get the multi layered retrofitted head gaskets, ask you mechanic about it, here's some information for you. Good luck. http://www.felpro-only.com/blog/sealing-subaru-2-5l-engines/
