Based on the first comment posted, I took my son's Subaru Outback in to have an oil leak checked. As it turned out, there was a serious leak in the rear main seal (a steady drip) and a smaller leak around the timing belt cover caused. Obviously, both leaks were of a serious nature and either could have led to engine failure and being stranded. I thought that Randy, with whom I dealt, was honest with me and that the pricing was fair. (I corroborated what I being told here with my dealer in SC and found that Randy was correct and that what he had told me about the car needed to be done.) I was pleased with every aspect of dealing with them and we believe that the quality of the work was high. Obviously, leaks of this kind are expensive repairs so please know that if there are any problems that develop, I will post them here. After cleaning all the caked up oil off the engine, they discovered a crack in a plastic plate that seals the transmition. Subaru has apparently upgraded this part with a metal one, and A.C. replaced this as well. The final bill came in about $225 less than the estimate and the estimate was less than a local dealer. We plan on using Automotive Connection again for the regular maintenance of this '98 Sub.
