Our 2001 Subaru is having trouble with major systems, we just fixed the alignment.
We got an estimate from another mechanic who has given us a list of what else is wrong and an estimate at around a $1000. (after doing a quick online search, it seems that part prices were inflated)
Subaru parts where to get them, where to have the car repaired? Dealership or others?
Because the car is 10 years old, we have 3 solution, fix what is wrong and hope nothing else breaks down in the middle of winter, convert it to an electrical or hybrid vehicle or trade her for a newer but used model.
Of course, the better half aquaintances are or willl be giving their opinions from buying some random new brand to leasing (no way) to other wacky ideas.
I have been put in charge of car decision making and I would truly appreciate any feedback from fellow Subaru lovers.
