Plus you have to remember there are now over 5400 members on this site alone. Just because there might be, say, 500 postings regarding bad head gaskets on any particular engine, that is still a very small percentage of the number manufactured. Not saying there aren't some documented cases of any particular problem, just that the percentage is skewed due to the relatively small gene pool you are looking at.
