How many miles are on your car?? Are you sure you need this done?? If I were you, I would have this , the water pump, belts , thermostat and radiator fluid all changed at the same time...it's good insurance.... against failures.... Also, if you have the CVT transmission, change or check this as well... I imagine that you are at 100,000 miles??

Ernie will tell you this is all over kill...go ahead Ernie , disagree with me, BUT, it's a lot cheaper and more self assuring to know that it's all done and taken care of. You'll be able to get another 100,000 miles on this car.. be sure and get genuine Subaru parts for all of this, very important!
