Maintenance: Front Brake Pad Replacement at 52,500 Miles, 04/23/2016. Brakes started feeling a little unresponsive so finally changed the OEM factory pads. Replace OEM with Power Stop Z16 Ceramic Brake Pads, a brand I've swapped on a few friend's and family's cars and seemed to work O.K. Plus they're on Amazon, so...

Self-performed, pretty straightforward replacement.

Maintenance: Oil Replenishment at 59,000 Miles, 11/16/2016. Oil level light came on while driving home from work so added 1/4 QT Castrol TWS 0w20.

Maintenance: Rear Brake Pad Replacement at 59,950 Miles, 11/23/2016.
Driver side rear brake began making an unpleasant grinding sound at slow speed stops, turns out the rear pad was down to 0% - whoops. For some reason I had it in my mind that I replaced all four corners when in fact I had only replaced the front pads. Replaced OEM with Bosch since they were available locally/immediately. Next brake pad swap I'll probably end up doing all four rotors as well.

Self-performed, easy replacement.

Maintenance: Front & Rear Differential & Transmission Fluid Replacement at 61,010 Miles, 1/1/2017. Drained the rear differential and front differential/transmission fluid and refilled with OEM Subaru 75w90 gear oil. Lessons learned: change the fluid every 30k miles - both front and rear were black with lots of crap on the drain plugs; the drain and fill plugs on the rear diff on my model (2013 Premium, 6 speed) do not have washers/gaskets - service manual states to use liquid gasket but multiple references stated they have not used a gasket and never had a leak, so giving it a try sans-gasket; use a fluid pump for the front diff/transmission refill - it'll be much faster and cleaner than using a funnel and gravity; service manual states refill capacity for front diff/transmission is 3.5 quarts, but put in 3 quarts and then check the level and add additional fluid as necessary - it's a PITA to drain small amounts if the level is too high.

Maintenance: Engine & Cabin Air Filter Replacement at 61,010 Miles, 1/1/2017. Replaced with OEM filters.

Maintenance: MAF Sensor Clean at 61,010 Miles, 1/1/2017. Performed while waiting for the oil to drain.

Repair: Headlight Bulb Replacement at 61,010 miles, 1/1/2017. Replaced passenger's side low beam bulb with OEM.
