You purchased a marketing tool and got maintenance.
You want to purchase maintenance.
In the US here is how it works, though you might find this hard to believe:
1. Buy a "30,000 mile maintenance package".
2. Look at your Subaru owners manual/maintenance requirements and ask the shop to perform the necessary items for 30,000 miles.
The price difference between those two scenarios can be astonishing. The first is a marketing tool, it's helpful to the organization and it's helpful to customers who don't want to think about their cars at all. If you have a few seconds and capacity you can choose option 2 and avoid the over priced marketing campaigns.
Nowhere does Subaru ever say "You are required to perform services A, B, C, or 30,000 or etc....". It's very easy and inexpensive to achieve your warranty required services without buying those marketing tools.
The service advisors might persuade or steer you to them - but thye are not required at all, nor do they actually provide you any additional service, though they'll try to sell it as if it does.
