My 2012 Subaru Forrester...

My 2012 Subaru Forrester is diagnosed at a Subaru dealer with oil leaking from passenger side of engine from cam-carriers: and they are asking $2286. to repair it. Sound reasonable?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the gaskets? Maybe the hoses?

No

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Forester yourself? What have you tried so far?

No All work has been done at dealer
