hole in engine block

My car isn't even paid off completely. Car is worth $9K and now I have to pay $6K (for a used engine block & labor) on a 2013 4 cylinder SUV. I drive like a little old lady, how does a car I've had from the very beginning get a hole in the engine at 70K miles? I just passed it's 5th year off the car lot, either Subaru has impeccable timing or I'm extremely unlucky. Check the picture out - under my hood everything is clean.

WTF man.
