Brake service for all four wheels: new rotors/pads. I don't have the time/tools/facility to do this myself, so I was calling around town this morning.

Local Subaru dealership: $1400

Average at 5 local shops I called: $400-ish.

Everyone was quoting OEM parts (no ceramic pads, performance rotors, ect) and labor. They were all very specific. The $1000 difference from the dealer literally made me laugh on the phone with them. $1400? Really?

When I bought my last car, a new Infiniti, I ordered a splash guard kit from the selling dealer's parts department. A month or so later I was surfing the accessories page on the Infiniti web site and found the splash guard kit's public list price was actually lower than I paid. I was shocked that a dealer would shaft a new customer who had just paid them over $40k for a new car. And I was pissed. I never went back to that dealer for any parts or service. That was just stupid on their part.
