Never Skip a Maintenance Checkup

Much like with your own health, routine check-ups and maintenance are key to your Subaru's health and longevity. Preventative maintenance (also known as manufacturer-scheduled maintenance) is critically important to your car's health, and skimping on regular fluid and filter changes, tire rotations, belt and hose service, etc. can lead to expensive and even dangerous complications down the road.

Engine Knocking? Don't Get Stuck Walking!

While regular maintenance can help prevent or minimize the impact of repair issues, even Subarus need repair sometimes. As soon as your vehicle develops a symptom, there's a risk that small something could turn into a major big thing that turns you into an unwilling pedestrian. Fortunately, our highly trained and experienced technicians can help, and the sooner you take action, the better (and usually cheaper). Contact us right away if your Subie feels off-kilter.

Head Gasket Repair

Different vehicle makes have earned different but particular reputations for specific foibles, and with Subaru, it's the head gasket. Consumer Reports shows head gasket problems through year 2004, with 2002 being particularly problematic. The Outback is far and away the most frequently repaired of all Subaru models, followed by the Legacy and Forester. The earlier you recognize head gasket failure symptoms, the less extensive and expensive the experience will be. How do you know if you need Subaru repair related to a head gasket failure?

STOP! – If your Subaru overheats, stop and shut off the car immediately! Continuing to drive an overheated engine can result in complete and permanent engine breakdown. And DO NOT loosen or remove the radiator cap while your engine is hot! This can result in serious injury!

  • Coolant overflow
  • Coolant or oil leaks beneath your vehicle
  • Overheating engine on highway or mountainous roads
