    2005 WRX Wagon High Mileage Maintenance

    Hey All,

    I have a 2005 WRX Wagon that I've taken great care of. It just hit 92k miles today and recently I had the 90k work done at my local suby dealership. I've had most of my maintenance performed at the dealer and unfortunately this time around they told me that I have a lot of maintenance coming up, though I'm trying to figure out if they are actually being truthful. Below is the laundry list they gave me for upcoming maintenance. Have other owners had similar work performed on their cars after hitting 90k miles, the only one that seems normal to me is the rear brakes? Thanks for your help! Much appreciated!

    -Both valve cover gaskets seeping $813 to replace
    -Both front DOJ boots seeping grease and have cracks $252/each
    -Transmission shift shaft seal seeping $570
    -BG power steering flush $110
    -Rear brakes $303

    Really, the only way that you can verify if they are being truthful is either to get under the car and have a look for yourself, or take it to another mechanic who you trust to look it over. I have had problems with shops trying to take advantage of me, as has many in my family. A lot of that seems fishy so I would get a second opinion, but the power steering flush is normal after a certain period. The rear brakes quote seems high unless they're replacing the rotors as well as the pads. You have a timing belt change coming up at 105k, but that's a little way off.

    Never fully trust anyone who stands to make a profit off you. Get a second opinion.
