2003 Subaru Baja Question: Timing belt

 

Question

If the timing belt breaks on this model is there an interference problem? I have been given the cost of replacing the belts to be $650, is this reasonable?

    I took mine to the dealership and they quoted me $750.... but I bit the bullet and had them change it.
