HG did not blow but engine began leaking oil, forerunner of blown HG. Subaru wanted $2,100 to pull engine and reseal it, including milling heads and new HG.

The engine did in fact have a bad head gasket?
Subaru did not say the HG was blown, only that the engine was leaking from multiple areas and needed to be resealed. The car ran perfectly and never overheated. I sold it yesterday to the dealer and got a 2019.
