Hey all Chicagoans! Does anyone know a reputable place to do my 30K service at, except Subaru dealers as they charge too much.

:rolleyes:
Personally I'd be willing to pay a little more for someone to do necessary maintenance at 30k when they know what they are doing... (the dealer)
Perhaps there is a special Subaru shop in Chicago that'd do it, but I do not know of one.

Youre right,and I`m all for someone that knows how to work on our cars but I cant justify spending about $800 for that service. I might just let a shop,just do the brakes and the coolant and handle everything else myself.:rolleyes:
