Default What would a "major" maintenance job include?

This is related to my other 2 threads

Anywho... the Subaru guy highly recommended that I get a "major maintenance job." What is included in this? His quote was for $482 ... How much could I save by doing these myself...

I figure that they want to:
-Change oil/filter/etc (which is only 2000mi old)
-Change all fluids
-New belts
-New coolant
-Plugs (which are currently 2k miles old)
-Wires (which are currently <2k mi. old)
-Air filter (which has around 9000mi on it)
-Fuel Filter (which has around 9k on it)

What else does major maintenance include?

Thanks again

You could do most of that yourself, but why? Don't just replace everything, especially stuff you just installed. You could spend the 500 and see no improvement. Go to a different mechanic and tell him you want to know what specifically is causing the problem. Then get that fixed.
