I was quoted approximately C$600 for the service package and parts for service B by a Subaru dealer in Calgary. Is this a fair price?
Any good mechanic in Calgary to recommend for Subaru Forester 2018? Thanks in advance.
Service B? Sounds like a dealer's one-size-fits-all service menu that probably includes some things you really don't need.
Consult the maintenance schedule in your Subaru Warranty & Maintenance booklet and perform only those items recommend by the manufacturer.
Just bring it in to the dealer for an oil change all the checks (and more) mentioned above are done with the oil change. Cabin filter if dirty (unlikely at 15000km) you can do yourself. Forget about rotating tires you will be putting snows on in 2 months.
Have a 2018 Forester Ti which we have owned since Aug 2018 and is due for second oil change. When called to make appointment they stated that our Forester was due for the 12 month/20,000 km service at $377. When they asked the number of kilometers on the vehicle I said approx. 9,800 km so it won't require the full deal they were selling, heck the brakes aren't even used at that mileage!. I said we will just do the oil change and the usual inspection. Even with these vehicles using synthetic oil the frerquency for oil changes appears to be too often. I just installed the winter tires so no rotation is required. I think the dealer needs to use some common sense when booking a vehicle for service, they aren't all cookie cutter appointments.
