Overpaying for service
Not sure if this is the proper spot for this thread, so by all means Admins move it if you need to.
So this happened to me the other day, I noticed my fog light was not in it's proper housing while I was waxing my car, so I took it to my dealer to get it checked out. They said that the housing for it was broken, probably from and impact. I have no other damage to my front bumper so I have no idea how that could've happened but they said it would be about $250 to fix. I promptly told them no and thanks anyway.
Later I jacked my car up and figured out how to fix it myself. Called the dealership and ordered the part for $12. That is a crazy upcharge if I do say so myself.
I haven't started this thread to bash Subaru because I love them and my car, just the crazy markup for services and parts sometimes. I want people to share their stories as well, not necessarily about Suabru and maybe they can give tips on minor fixes to help other people out with similar problems.
