I can imagine them re-torqueing the drive shaft connector bolts (AWD Siennas actually call for this service every 30k), but that's a simple job that should take minutes, and not cost $150. Puh-lease.

Just a followup, brought my Subie down to the local shop that Paisan runs, they did a great job and did a 30k service in the same amount of time I was used to waiting for an oil change from the dealer.
And the cookies were good too. I'll have to schedule an afternoon appointment next time so I can try the tap.

I would never walk into that dealer again. I have been told that at some dealers the managers get a % of the money from work orders so they do work that is not really needed. Not sure how true that is but nothing would surprise me ESP In the NYC area. Always use a trusted mechanic ...
