I have a 2011 outback with aprox 34,000 on the odometer and wanted to take it in to the dealer for a warranty check to keep up my warranty. I do my own oil changes with synthetic oil so don't need an oil change , but they said the 32,000 check includes taking the front and rear brake calipers off the vehicle,cleaning and lubricating and putting them back on. I've never heard of this on any vehicle I've owned. Is this just a money grab or are the brakes designed in such a way that they need this procedure? Any ideas or comments would be appreciated..Thanks.
