I have a 2003 Subaru Froester and it is approaching doing the 100k mark. I am planning to take it in for service. I asked the shop about the 90k service and the timing belt. What is your opinion on the work to be performed and the cost?
A 90k service for that vehicle includes, spark plug replacement, fuel filter replacement, cabin air filter, air filter, brake fluid flush, coolant flush, brake inspection, steering and suspension inspection, and all other fluids inspected. The cost for those replacements and inspections is $680, however, it may be less if things like the coolant and brake fluid are clean and do not need serviced, and it could also be a little more if the differential fluids are dark and need serviced.
For the timing belt job it would be parts, tax, and labor of $1,200. However, we go through and replace everything so you can go another 100k without any problems, this would include: timing belt, timing belt tension adjuster, water pump, 3 timing belt idlers, front crankshaft seal, tensioner roller, 4 camshaft seals. Give us a call at 303-466-6552 if you would like to schedule and appointment.
