Dropped off the baby sitter Saturday night and noticed the mileage on my '97 OB was 123,455. Drove an extra block or two to get


I approached this mileage cautiously, since I was sure that the [original] head gaskets on this 2.5l engine were going to jump out from under the hood!

I just hit 100,000 a couple weeks ago. Woohoo!

When I get to 111,000 I'm gonna reset my trip odometer so I can get a picture with 111,111 on the regular odo and 111.1 on the trip odo. :D

Here it is. Next 234,567

I called my garage today and told him that all people talk about on this board was the detonation of head gaskets on 2.5l Subaru engines, and would he run the tests on it at the next oil change (I had an oil analysis done at 65K).

He said, "We'll do them if you tell us to - but we don't see it happening...."
