My dealer will perform oil & filter change for labor and disposal fee total of about $22 when I bring in my own oil and filter. I get top quality synthetic oil for about $25 or less at WalMart, depending on possible rebate. Subaru blue A15 filter at dealer parts counter I think is about $8 now. They also do their basic maintenance check of fluids, etc. included in this charge. So my cost is about $55. Tire rotation is $20 but when you eventually get replacement tires at Costco or Discount Tire, rotations become free.Took car in for 6mos service. Service writer questioned that I had just had oil change done in June (6/2 to be precise), why was I doing so soon and only 4300 mi. since. I told her so I wouldn't void the warranty plus I needed state insp. (free from dlr), s/w update and alignment check (also free). She came back and told me well as long as you get the oil changed at least once a yr. I'd be ok. I told her that wasn't what I understood. Go figure? This evening I found out there is a new map version available. Why wouldn't they have checked that as well and updated? Alignment was out on left rear. Must have been like that from factory since I hadn't noticed anything and only have 8500 mi. on it.
Overall pleasant experience but **** the costs to change oil is horrible even w/ a $25 coupon. Considering buying the Subaru filters in bulk, oil at Walmart and taking somewhere to have it done. $123.00 for oil and filter change and tire rotation just seems steep to me. Maybe I've gotten spoiled by Honda's syn. blend and the coupons they send me. Guess I could consider it a birthday present for the car since it was a yr. old yesterday.🎂🎁🎉
See if your dealer will do something similar. Or, maybe an indy shop. Or, if you're young & limber enough, DIY oil change on Gen 6 OB is simple. Reco a Fumoto valve if you go that route.
