Default 05 Outback owner, need shop advice.

I have a 05 outback with a leaking head gasket (4-banger). I hear this is a common problem, but the dealer is asking almost $3k to do the job. This seems excessive to me... any good shop recomendations in the Denver area?

I posted here because this is the top subie community, didn't really know where else to post. I apologize if this isn't the correct forum for this post, and greatly appreciate any help you can provide.

I wonder if it's so high because they need to drop the engine to get the heads off? My 2000 had a recall for HG leaks, they put gunk in the radiator... I thought this was fixed by 2003, though. Have you overheated the engine?
