Talking 60,000 service! ....purrrr.....

I'm posting here 'cause it's a Legacy.

Just got my car back from the 60,000 service today. I did it a bit early because I don't know what was done previous to me. Anyway, I'm sooooo happy I did! Suby Specialties in Monrovia is the most amazing place ever. They are soooo good! They fixed the rough shift into 2nd (AUTO) by replacing tranny fluid, so now it's as smooth as all the others. The car now idles in D about as well as it does in N. Before, the idle in D was fine, but more perceptable. The whole car runs smoother in general. They also did things I didn't ask for, like clean any hint of rust off of all visible surfaces, they make the parking brake work soooo much better, as well as adjusting the normal brakes to actually work . I need to go see if the engine tick while cold has changed at all, probably not.

ahhhh.... like I said, I'm happy. It's one of the best "mods" I've done.

oh, and another thing I did while I was there was put on titanium windshield wipers. It was a total impulse buy, but they look really good. Only cost about $30 and are from somewhere in Japan judging by the packaging. They are silver instead of black and add another subtle touch to the car. They took .75 sec of my 1/4 mile . I'll post a pic one of these days.

Anyway, this is just a friendly remider to do all scheduled maintinence. Your car will love you for it.

total cost - $415.00

I had my 60K service done at the dealer. They did a good job. They told me the next BIG service is 90K. That is when they change the timing belt. The whole service is going to be around $550. The best part about the 60K service was they didn't find any problems with my car except I needed new pads. I did that myself, super easy.

I bought the 4/48,000 mile extended warranty at the same time. So I am under warranty untill around 2005 or 108,000 miles. This was my first Subaru so I was kind of unsure how reliable they were. I got it for some piece of mind. I was starting to wonder if I wasted my money. Untill one day I started her up, put her in reverse, and all the sudden the ABS light comes on. All the lights in the dash were diming and totally screwed. Well to the dealer I go. Turns out after 3 days of searching that a small wire(third brake light) had rubbed untill it grounded. They showed me the invoice. The total bill would have been around $600. That made the warranty look like a very wise purchase. I have had zero problems since and they did a great job on cleaning up and putting everything back together. I went in to look one day and my car was in many pieces I was so worried they would screw it up or break something; but nope.

HIHO,

i have a few questions if you dont mind .

1. would i be able to do a 60k service even though im only at 52k from the dealer?

2. would it vary from dealer to dealer as to what they would do or can do for that 60k service (i.e. would my dealer do the same things as was done in your car)

thanks

The place I did mine was not a dealership. The dealership I've gone to is too expensive and in my opinion, shady. Suby Specialties came HIGHLY recommended from people here in SoCal and they've done some generous things for our local subie community like sponser free installfest days where they'll install most anything for free. Plus they are cool guys.

By the way, I think I might have a bad bearing in my front left wheel, there is a really subtle grinding kinda sound I can only hear on smooth roads with the radio off. Any way I can diagnose it easily? Do bearings go bad on Legacies?

They can if you take on a curb hidden under some snow The general effect I noticed was the slight sound (whawhawha) of the bum bearing while speeding up when I was on the gas and slowing down as I braked. Wasn't too expensive to replace/fix it. Only about $200 or so with labor if memory serves well.

I've had the wheel bearings go out on 3 of my wheels. If you find a cheap place it's about 250 dollars with labor, and can go up to (from what I saw) about 400 dollars. But as you can tell, yeah they can go bad, 2 of the 3 were just from wear, and the 3rd one was from when I hit a curb doing about 5-10 miles per hour. BTW our stock lower control arms suck

I'd just assume pay someone else. The time it takes plus the chances of me screwing something up make it worth paying someone else.

I do install the occasional mod, though.
