    90K maintenance

    Hey guys,
    I just bought a 02 wrb with 90,000 miles on it. Besides the maintenance I have listed below would you recommend anything else.

    Replace:
    oil/filter
    spark plugs
    fuel filter
    coolant
    brake fluid

    Inspect:
    basically everything

    I got this information from the periodic service manual.

    Your thoughts are appreciated.

    just go to the dealer, bend over and wait paitiently
    or you can do most of this stuff yourself for half the price with better parts.
    If you don't know Subarus yet, read some stickies in Maintanance and Tutorial or get a friend who has one and worked on it already.
    So it had 90k when you boutht it, huh? Let us know how it runs second hand with high milage. Good luck with the car.

    good luck with the car huh? Should I be scared?
    I couldnt pass up the deal, the price was too good. I'm not scared of high miles or the maintenance that might come with it.

    I thought of bringing it to the dealer because I have $500 in subybucks that I didnt know what else to do. I agree I will get bent over.

    well it's ok to have high milage when you're driving this thing from the beginning, but if you're like 2nd or 3rd owner and you don't know the people who drove it before you it's a bit scary, cause you're putting your money (and it's not like 1 or 2grand) into a big unknown.

    Was all the 60k maintenance done? If not you'd probably want to hit that timing belt while you're at it.
