Subaru service cost

Asked by Marcus Weber

Some comments about Subaru: My last service cost $292 but the dealer attempted to double the invoice with a cabin filter for $115 and injectors "flushed" for another $150. Subaru has service intervals that are half of the rest of the industry, at double the cost. All Subaru speedos are set 10 per cent below actual speed and dealers refuse to rectify this. It means at 100,000km you have only done 90,000km and paid for an additional service. Also, you hold up traffic on the open road. I have two Subarus, a 2008 Liberty wagon and 2014 Forester.

Subaru spokesman David Rowley replies: "If the customer can supply the details of their car and the particular service, we would like to investigate on their behalf. Under Subaru's capped price service program, the cost of each service is transparent and clearly spelled out on our website, and can be checked at the time of booking, vehicle drop-off or pick-up. Speedometers on all new vehicles sold in Australia, including on all Subarus, have to meet Australian Design Rules. However, the speedometer reading is not directly linked to the odometer reading and therefore won't generate any variances."
