Angry Blown head gasket

I have a 2003 tourin' pt that for the last 2 yr's has not seen the rain or the snow and this yr has only been driven on clear day's and alot of car show's so, as you might have quessed it is very well kept. The problem I have is while it is well kept w/ only 66,000 miles and was soon to be put away for the winter I started to have an oil leak so I took it to the dealer and was told the head gasket, oil pan gasket and oil filter gasket was leaking and to top it all off was told my warrenty had expired and they want $ 1,500.00 to fix it so, is it common for this to happen w/ low miles such as mine and has anyone else had this problem also:::thankxx fatboypt::not very happy::

Go get another opinion. That dealer is trying to stay solvent on your wallet.

solvent adj. Capable of meeting financial obligations.
