Subaru STI in Lake Forest Park and Shoreline

Are you looking for an expert auto mechanic to give your Subaru STI some TLC? If you’re in Lake Forest Park or the Shoreline area, we’ve got just the right auto repair shop for you -- Suburb Service has a team of auto mechanics who love Subarus just as much as you do.

With its turbocharged engine, the Subaru STI couldn’t be any more fun to drive. With the Brembo brakes, the STI can stop on a dime. As with any Subaru, if well-maintained, it can last for over 200,000 miles. Our auto repair team of Subie lovers can help you reach that goal and beyond.

However, the Subaru STI has had more than its share of problems, especially in cars before 2014. Though Subaru has since fixed the issues, the 2.5 L turbocharged engines found in Subaru STIs are prone to head gasket problems and overheating. That’s why it’s essential to bring your Subaru STI to a trusted Subaru expert

At Suburb Service, our Master Technicians are factory-trained with over 25 years of experience. We have the knowledge to handle any issues that come up. We remove the engines because doing so allows us to see clearly and make a precise diagnosis. We also carefully clean everything before putting it back into your Subaru, which helps your vehicle last longer.

Trust Suburb Service in Lake Forest Park to not only keep your Subaru STI running in top condition but to communicate with you about any issues we find. You are more than just a number at Suburb Service, and we’ll help you make the best plan for your car as we did for the customer below:

“This is an amazing repair shop. I purchased my first Subaru and it failed emissions. This shop was on the list of approved shops so I have them a shot. I am very happy that I did. Turns out the car that I bought is not a good car. Candy and Howard were great. They could have hit me with a bunch of repairs on a car that wasn't worth what I put in the gas tank but they didn't. They did the basics to get me to pass emissions and then gave me the honest truth about the vehicle. Turns out that the check engine light was burnt out or removed so I had no idea about how much was wrong with it. In addition to that, there are multiple components of the car that are rusted and damaged, or completely rusted off. The car is not safe to drive and I know there's a lot of mechanics out there that would have happily taken much more of my money. Having a mechanic that you can trust is a huge deal. They also provide loaner cars for their customers. This made my life so much easier. I was able to drop my kids off at school, pick up a loaner car, and get to work without making it a big ordeal. My only complaint is that they only do Subarus so I cannot bring any of my other vehicles, too. However when I asked the owner, Candy, why they would not work on my Acura her reply was awesome. She said, "We are professionals at what we do, and we do is Subarus. If I started working on any other cars it would just be practice." (Paraphrased but that's the gist of it ) She did say that they would do oil changes on my other car and tires and brakes, but when it came to actual engine repair, that they focused on Subaru. So if you have a Subaru, this is probably the place for you." -- Donald M.
