Not even a full 72 hours after I bought the car, it lost oil pressure, the idiot light came on, and $6,000 later, I have a new engine in my car. In the state of Georgia, the Lemon Law does not protect used cars at all. All I can do is have a lawyer send a letter of intent to sue and hope for the best. Other than that, I'm pretty much stuck with fixing it.

That's bad luck.
Ouch that sucks man. If I were ever to buy a used Subaru I'd 100% make sure I had a safety net of 5-10k for a new block whenever it chooses to act up. It could last for 100k or it could crack a ringland at 1k, that's whats so scary.
