The problem I have is owning a Subaru that requires subaru transmission fluid (very expensive ATF-HP)
My local Quaker State vendor "Battle Ground Quick Lube" quoted me $ 140.00 over the phone for a transmission flush.
I took the vehicle in and they had bought the fluid from subaru. I asked how much the procedure would cost to confirm the estimated price. They said $268.00! Keep in mind this is "Battle Ground Quick Lube."
I said I did not have enough money to do the job and left. I called the manager at the 33rd & Sandy Jiffy Lube where I usually go for my other fluid changes and told him my dilemma. He told be to buy the transmission fluid myself, bring in the car and they would charge me $50.00 for labor. The total cost including the fluid was $ 100.00 - So hats off to Jiffy Lube on Sandy!
