peeps,

Just a couple months ago i just hit 200k! Was wondering where to take my subbie for maintenance? I'm located in the LML (abby), and theres no subaru dealers in my area!

Any recommendations ? Also what service should I be looking at?

thanks!

I guess Wolfe would be the closest Subaru dealership, but there rep is lacking. After that I'd say it is equa-distance to Specialty or Docksteader. My vote goes to Specialty but I think you will get equal for them and Dock.

The basics?

1. Check for cracks in your timing belt
2. Change your oil every 3000
3. Change all your other fluids
4. Check where you park for oil leaks
5. Check under your engine for head gasket leaks
6. Check the water pump
7. Raise your car, check the suspensions
8. Change the filters
9. Drink beer

you would be due for a 196km ``C`` service or a 202km ``A`` service

A service would be oil changed and lube doors rotate tires - about $100 from a dealer

C service:
new filters, fluids, spark plugs, pcv valve, service brakes, hvac filter, check belts etc. - around $6-700 from a dealer

midas shouldnt touch subaru's. I have little faith in the midas/budget/one stop shops these days. I would pay the few extra $$ to get it done properly the first time. Thats just my opinion tho....

I just rolled over 200,000km's on my chassis too! Im around 20,000miles's on my motor tho!

Check out collin's automotive...in abbotsford, on mcallum right off the freeway....

my dad took our old 98 outback there for servicing for 8ish years...last 350,000K when it was sold still running....he was pretty happy with them....
