Wow, we charge about 1/2 that and use top-shelf stuff. What kind of fluids did they use for that price??? Where are you located?got the maintenance done today, and can tell night and day difference in performance with engine and brakes and transmission. Thought was pretty pricey at 0, but I drive this thing like it's a race car so guess I shouldn't complain too much.
According to what I've read in the owner's manual, Subaru recommends not changing the coolant until like 100,000 miles. I could be mis-remembering that. It was either 100,000 or never unless you are having problems with cooling.I'm not sure what dealers do but we usually follow the severe service since most of our customers drive pretty enthusiastically.
The basics of what we do are:
Coolant Change (pre-3G)
Gear/Trans/Diffy Fluid Changes
Oil Change w/Filter
Top off Other Fluids
