Goodness that looks like a lot to stay ahead on, is that what you just said? Fear not Subbie owner we are here to help! Much of what these services consist of are “checks and inspections” so we are taking a visual inspection of key components. Is a belt cracked? Are fluids leaking? Does a sensor need replaced or wiring repaired? All of these are questions that can be answered once a qualified technician begins the inspection process.
Don’t become that Subaru owner with their broken car listed on Craigslist! With a quick browse through the For Sale section you’ll always find cars for sale with “Blown Motors”, or “Needs head work”, or “Cranks but won’t start” unfortunately a large majority of these situations would have been avoided with proper maintenance. Services such as the Timing Belt Service though they ARE some of the more expensive preventative can keep your Subaru car or truck running down the road for years to come. Unsure if yours has been done? Interested in getting an inspection or service performed by our highly qualified technicians? Call today to schedule!
