I don't know, maybe I'm just a real cynical guy, but what I think your dealer might be saying is, "Hey hoser, can't you see I'm busy ?Come back in 20,000 miles when the engine is totally blown and you're even further out of warranty". When Phase II engines experience head gasket failure, it is an external failure MOST of the time. It is very possible for your engine to have the much more serious internal failure. Have the coolant checked for exhaust gases even if you have to pay for it yourself. Leaking coolant will ruin the crankshaft bearings in short order. A few people have posted about a possible "good will" gesture on the part of Subaru concerning Phase II head gasket failures. Hell, if I had brown goo in my coolant reservoir, I'd pay $60 just to be sure that it wasn't a head gasket failure.
