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 transmitted 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?
