lubed & recycled door locks - no help - problem is intermittent

Why would two cable blow with only 80,000 miles? Can I yrust Subaru to rebuild the engine? Should I junk it?

the belt broke at highway speed. I heard no sounds of metal crashing. Is there a chance that replacing the timing belt will enable the engine to run? If the valves are only slightly bent, will the engine run? How can I determine if the engine is destroyed or can be salvaged. Dealer wants $500 to repalce belt, $6,000 to replace engine. How can I know if the $500 belt replace could be successful?

The dimming was gradual over a month or so but has now blanked out completely. Changed direction as usual until it disappeared.

Is the replacement costly (spprox), and what are ramifications if left alone?
