Yes I remember that. Tough going through town indeed. This one rolled around to 200,000 miles a bit ago. Becky went to pick up the Subaru today. Had them put in new head gaskets in both heads and do the 100k maintenance. Total costs were less than I thought they might be. From the reading I've done, the Subaru vehicles from 2000 to 2010 are notorious for head gasket issues. A lot of folks at 80,000 miles have had to have them replaced.Had weird stuff happen like that with my Intrepid towards the end. And then of course times like back in college to where I'd have to shift her to neutral and rev up at stop lights otherwise she'd stall if left in drive. Made for interesting times driving through GF.
Lotta miles back in the days on those kind of drives. I've had my current vehicle for at least 8 years now - still haven't put 50k on itI believe mine went passed 200k as well. Used to put around 40k miles per year back in the college days. Driving back and forth every weekend. Did the job.
