Default It's like a new car...

The 2001 outback needed help. The rear brakes were worn to their last few miles of use. I finally changed them tonight, and the car feels so much better, even if it's all in my head. I forgot to pump the brakes before the test drive, and almost didn't stop. I was headed towards a busy street... Not good. Luckily, the brake pressure came back quick enough to stop in time.

I also changed the plugs and washed the k&n air filter. Hopefully, I'll be good for a while now.

If he didn't open the system, he doesn't need to. Never a bad idea, but not a requirement.

I opened the res, put a towel around to catch the overflow, and pressed the pistons back in. No air bubbles to worry about (I assume). I just changed the fluid a while back, so I didn't want to crack open everything again. Hope that wasn't a stupid idea...
