2012 Subaru Impreza Sport: 15K Service Visit
February 20, 2013
If only all service visits were this quick and easy. We called for an early morning appointment and then dropped off our 2012 Subaru Impreza Sport at Subaru of Santa Monica. We told the service advisor we wanted an oil and filter change and a tire rotation. He wrote everything up and said he recommended adding a new air condition filter for a total of $240. We declined the filter since it wasn't called for on the scheduled maintenance. This dropped the price to $127.47.
We looked up our Subie in the Maintenance Guide and got a price of $141.79. This helped us deflect the sale of the air conditioner filter and it also made us feel good about getting a lower price. The car was ready less than an hour and a half later. And they gave it a bath too. Nice.
