2013 Subaru BRZ: First Service

August 15, 2012


Our 2013 Subaru BRZ paid a visit to Timmons Subaru in Long Beach for its first service yesterday. The stop was uneventful, aside from a guy in the waiting room that felt inclined to talk politics to anyone that would listen.

We brought a laptop, knowing the service would take about 90 minutes. Sure enough, the car was ready in exactly that time. At $99, the oil change and tire rotation cost slightly less than our first FR-S service ($110) in Santa Monica. We attribute the variation in price to the to the location of each dealership. Otherwise, the staff was polite and the work was completed to our satisfaction.

Total Cost: $99.36

Total Days out of Service: None
