Hi guys, I have an '05 Legacy Outback wagon. Love the car.

One thing I would love to know is this. I've had my car since '06. I need a timing belt changed and the camshaft needs to be replaced, which should cost around a cool $2500.

Here's the question: Would it make sense to keep the current car going or buy a new one?

No, I don't have anything against my current car, I do love it :) .

Also, what can I do to fix my FOB? Do dealers do that?

It's remarkably uncommon to require a camshaft replacement... Timing belt is no big deal by itself, and is normally required every 105,000 miles or 105 months.

Consider taking it to another shop for a second opinion.
