Your A/C Is About More Than Just Comfort!

As the weather starts to heat up, ensuring your car's air conditioning is in good working order is essential. Not only does a functioning A/C system keep you comfortable on hot summer days, but it helps prevent engine overheating and keeps your car's interior from warping or cracking due to extreme temperatures.


At Suburb Service, we understand the importance of a properly functioning A/C system for your Subaru. That's why we want you to come in and see us for all of your A/C needs! Check our specials page for monthly discounts for our services.

Subaru: Even The Toughest Vehicles Need Some Support!

Despite Subaru's reputation for reliability, even the best cars can experience A/C problems from time to time. Here are some of the most common A/C issues we see with Subarus and how we can solve them:

  1. Weak airflow: If your A/C isn't blowing as strong as it used to, the most common cause is a clogged or dirty cabin air filter. Our mechanics can easily replace the air filter and get your A/C blowing strong again in no time.
  2. Strange noises: If your A/C makes strange noises like rattling or banging, the A/C compressor may fail. This can be costly, but our experienced mechanics can diagnose the issue and recommend the most cost-effective solution, whether repairing or replacing the compressor.
  3. Warm air: If your A/C is blowing warm air instead of cold, several issues could be at play, from low refrigerant levels to a failed compressor. Our team will inspect the system to determine the root cause of the problem and provide a detailed explanation of what needs to be done to get your A/C to blow cold again.
  4. Foul odors: If your A/C is producing a musty or moldy smell, likely bacteria or mold is growing in the A/C system. Our team can clean the system and replace any components contributing to the issue.

At Suburb Service, we use the latest diagnostic tools and techniques to identify and resolve A/C issues with precision and efficiency.
