I took my Subaru in today for a 90,000 mile service and a yearly inspection. Never mind, my car just recently passed the 100,000 mile mark (I'm a little behind). Anyway, I was expecting it to be expensive--$50 for the inspection and $525 for the service. What I didn't expect was that I needed new windshield wipers, and new brake pads. That was to be $200 more. Then, while I am running errands* in town, I get another call from the dealership. He said that the discs were worn too much and I need new brakes all together! That will be another $165! My gosh, just shoot me. I seriously wanted to throw up right then and there. Let's just say that I'm glad the Keith Urban ticket has long been paid for because I could not justify plopping down $80 right now for a concert ticket.
