The mechanic that did my head gasket 8 years ago was still in business and did the job for 1700.00 which is a great price for the NY area.

My understanding is that Subaru is using much better gaskets on the new models made from steel.

My mechanic told me that subaru's engines (horizontal) are more susceptible to using bad gasoline and oil, so to change oil every 3k miles using semi synthetic or synthetic. Subaru's triple layer steel gasket should perform better than previous years, one would hope.
