Question Asked: Power Steering and Brake Fluid replaced at 22.500 miles?
November 09, 2009, 04:40 PM
My Car is leased, though I plan to buy it at the end of the lease, so I want to make sure to take great care of this car. I just got a 22,000 Mile Oil change and was told I needed the following: New Battery- $175 Power Steering Fluid Exchange Service- $155 Brake Fluid Flush- $165 I am amazed that I need a new Battery after 23 months of ownership. I am very wary of any kind of Flushing Services, as P/S is not even listed in the owners manual for maintenance and Brake Fluid is listed as a "Check" at 30k miles. What's the best way to go about getting a second opinion/ finding out if my P/S fluid really is in bad shape. Is this common for 2 year old Subaru's with fairly low mileage? Seems very odd to me.

Problem Reported: Low rumbling sound when in Reverse = Bad Engine Mounts

<p>Worn engine mounts can lead to unwanted engine vibrations being&nbsp;transmitted&nbsp;to the body, most commonly with the engine idling and the transmission in reverse. Replacing the worn mount(s) should correct this concern.</p>

Had to replace Engine Mount at 30k miles. It would rattle and make a bad low grumble sound in Reverse. That's a tough $600 to drop on a non Warranty part of the Engine. Anybody else had similar problems?
