I just purchased my first Subaru its 8 yrs old now but im still happy to own it. The previous owner said that I should change the timing belt. This morning I called my mechanic and asked him how much it would cost to change it, he said "the WRX has two belts to change and it takes alot of work, I usually recommend replacing the bearing and the water pump when doing this job. He estimates the cost to be no less than 700. "
How does this sound to you guys? whats the approximate cost of the timing belt change. Do i need to change the water pump?
