    $127.47 for oil and filter change and tire rotation??? That seems way high. This same service for my 2011 Hyundai Sonata at the Hyundai dealer is less than $50 and includes a 34-point inspection and complimentary car wash.

    The $141.79 in your Edmunds maintenance guide is for labor only. The total for parts and labor is $179.77. You put the link to the guide in your post and it took me like 2 seconds to read the bottom line. I'm glad you got a good price and all, but...you are the senior consumer advice editor - aren't you supposed to know how to read that thing?
  • Are you kidding me? Like Ryster said $50-60 is what I would expect even at a stealership. And by air conditioning filter do you mean a cabin air filter? Because that's gotta be only a $10 part and, unless Subarus are really different (possible, given the flat engine) labor is a couple minutes and a beer to dull the pain from the scraped knuckles.
  • Air condition filter? What's that? Was he referring to the cabin air filter? That IS specified to be changed at 15K miles, although that may be a bit earlier than is really needed. But, $123 for that? It's a $15 part and you can change it in 15 minutes with no tools needed. The service person can probably do it in 5 minutes tops.
  • These must be California prices. I'd say high even by dealer standards. That said, it is synthetic oil, and that increases the price a bit.
  • Cabin filter pt 2: I see that my Subaru dealer has a coupon special for $90 for cabin filter replacement. It's my understanding that other Subaru models may involve a lot more work to replace this filter. Sounds like the dealer in this story quoted his "standard Subaru rate." However, not true for the 2012+ Imprezas. Pretty quick to replace the cabin filter.
