You will not find a $19.95 oil change at Suburb Service

Quality first

That's right, you will not find an oil change advertised for $19.95 for any of our Subarus, and we are not shy in saying so. In fact, this is a deliberate choice on our part, because we value the quality of our work, and the quality our customers deserve in order to keep their Subarus running at optimal levels.

Fast isn't always better

Many quick, drive thru oil change businesses will offer what seems to be a fantastic price, but in reality you truly do get what you pay for. They use the same one size fits all parts. The quality of oil is normally as low as the vehicle can get away with, without instant damage, and typically for that price, all the surrounding parts remain untouched as they collect dirt and grime.

Protect your investment

But at Suburb Service, we truly care about your Subaru and you investment. We believe the quality of oil is extremely important, and love to educate on how not all oil is created equal. The best oils require more refinement, which causes them to be more expensive. Yet the more refined, the more protected the entire engine will remain, cutting on major costs later on.

Not only do we use quality oil and oil filters (and nothing else!), we replace the crush gasket on the pan and complete a full safety inspection while we have access to your Subaru with the intention of catching any safety issues you may encounter on future drives with your Subaru.

ASE Certified technicians

We care so much, that we require all of our technicians be ASE Certified. Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), is a professional certification that was created in response to consumers needing to distinguish between potentially incompetent and competent automotive technicians through the United States and Canada. This certification is not a requirement to the average technician, but we personally require it for our technicians to ensure we each give the best, professional, ethical, top quality service for your Subaru.

If you like fast service plus coffee and cookies...

If you would like to have the work on your Subaru done correctly and efficiently, with lots of love and respect, but still with that easy access of a drive thru - we've come up with a solution for you. Stop to see us any morning, Monday - Friday, between 7:00am-9:00am for a quick, quality oil change and a cup of coffee. You may even walk away with a cookie!

You'll drive away with 100% peace of mind knowing your Subaru got the best care, with the best intentions, by your favorite Subaru friends.
