99 Forester with short block replacement
Hi. Looking at a 99 forester that had a short block replaced according to dealer records at 85k. (was under warranty) Mileage is only about + 40k on that.
What do you guys think of this? That's basically a new engine I'd have to think. The gaskets issues should be licked right? (and certainly that should cover the 100k maintenance I'd think)
The cause... though? Don't have that. Overheated engine... timing belt broke?
