Default Dealers: please DO NOT try to rip off your Suby owners

First off, a THANK YOU to Scott (SRS) on the club for helping me out with my Subaru 30K sparkplug maintenance. We changed'm last Saturday at the SD autocross.

Secondly, I nearly got ripped off by a vendor, a dealership (not again!!!) regarding this. I won't list specific individuals other than that it was RENICK Subaru.

I was given an estimated $150.00 for the sparkplug change (if I bring in my own plugs. Otherwise it'd be even more) because it supposedly "required a few hours to do" because they'd have to "remove the washer fluid and battery" etc etc..

I knew darn well that this price was steeep and slowly walked away. But due to my busy optometry classes I was getting desperate and was thinking of getting it done at Renick. Close..but they didn't get me.

I became even more upset after Scott and I got the plugs changed ourselves. It was damn easy and took about 10 minutes!!! Plus, we only removed the washer fluid box without messing with the battery.


From San Diego (remember? to Fullerton, the dealerships get on my last nerve.

$$$Even doctors have more mercy$$$

**Disclaimer: Not all dealerships suck ass. Just the ones I've dealt with, except for Irvine Subaru which is still awesome sales/service in my book**
