2015 Outback 3.6R
We just got my wife's Forester ('13 2.5) back from our indie import repair shop with the pleasant news of a bad rod bearing. It was making an awful sound before taking it in. I knew it was going to be catastrophic. Anyway, they are trying to figure out whats best for us going forward but I wanted to get some advice here. We're still paying on the car and she doesn't want to get rid of it. Only just 106xxx miles on it. Should I try to source a used motor/short block, get SOA involved, get rid of it?We were quoted between 3-5k to repair. Thanks for any help.
