Specialist Subaru Servicing
Subarus are unique vehicles in many ways; with symmetrical AWD systems, boxer engines, and many high-performance turbo models, these cars are in a class of their own. The weight balance, and symmetrical drive system make them very enjoyable to drive, and very safe, whether you use them to take the kids to school, or engage in spirited motorsport applications. This uniqueness has brought Subaru a loyal base of repeat customers, but it has also brought a set of service procedures that many general mechanics do not encounter in their daily work.
All Drive Subaroo has a team of factory trained specialist Subaru techs and hand-picked apprentices, with a ratio of five to one trained techs to apprentices. This allows us to provide the best training in the industry, and the best service. Each of our fully qualified techs has been specialist trained in different Subaru systems. This means that when it comes to repairs, diagnosis is quick and accurate and the job is done efficiently with no delays or surprises.
All Drive Subaroo have also invested heavily in tooling and equipment specific to Subaru applications. We have researched fixes for many common problems and have come up with many solutions that are more reliable and durable than Subaru dealer options. Because we are an engine and gearbox building factory as well as a service center we have put in decades of research into the engineering behind these products. We not only fix Subaru systems, we often improve them.

Self-serve, or Subaru Specialist: is there a place for DIY?
Peace of mind You might be pretty handy with tools, but service isn't just changing oil and filters. Modern Subarus are complex machines; there are many mechanical and perishable parts that need inspection and servicing at the right times if you want your Subaru to keep driving like new. The boxer engine type also presents unique service requirements, especially in the area of upper engine maintenance. Take it to a specialist Subaru service centre, and you have peace of mind, knowing you can pack the boot and head off in any direction you like, knowing you'll get there relaxed, and with all your cargo safe and sound.
Log book service value for money There are many reasons why Log Book servicing is the best plan for a long term owner: Because vital consumables, such as belts and hoses and tyres, are kept in good condition, you will get reliable relaxed motoring; Because your engine is kept topped up with clean oil and the upper cylinders are regularly de-coked, you will get greater fuel efficiency; Because the Subaru log book schedule is well planned, you won't be paying for over-servicing; Because brakes and steering are properly maintained your vehicle will always be safe to drive;. Finally, when the time comes to sell, you will get a higher price and your car will be easier to sell.
Turbo & non-turbo servicing complexities - traps for the inexperienced Many general mechanics are not aware of the different servicing requirements for turbo Subaru models, such as Liberty GT, Impreza WRX, Forester GT, and Impreza STi and diesel models, and we field many industry questions on the different requirements for these models. Turbo petrol engines are subjected to higher stresses and temperatures than normally aspirated engines and high-compression diesel engines have their own unique needs. making coolants and lubricants especially critical for both these engine types. Currently there are six different recommended engine oils, five different gearbox and diff oils, and fifteen different Subaru models with differing requirements. The introduction of the EE20 diesel engine has also produced many new service and repair complexities with very strict fuel and oil specifications. The new generation FA20 and FADIT and FB25 petrol engines all require 0W20 oil. There's a lot to keep track of, and only a specialist Subaru workshop is abreast of all the variations. Note that mistakes made in selecting lubricants can drastically shorten the life of your engine or transmission. See our oil and lubricant recommendations page.
