150-Point Vehicle Inspection

Regular inspection of Subaru vehicles has led us to develop Subaru-specific inspection forms so thorough that we catch problems as they are developing to help minimize break downs on the road.  Our goal is keep your Subaru running as reliably as possible, which is why we adopted such an in-depth inspection process.  Compare this to the 68-point inspection required by the factory.  Our inspection includes the following systems:

  • Warning lights
  • Test drive
  • Windshield, wipers, and washers
  • Front and rear exterior lighting
  • Under-hood fluids – level and condition
  • Drive belts
  • Cooling system components
  • Engine gaskets and seals
  • Steering components
  • Front and rear CV axle boots and clamps
  • Front and rear suspension components
  • Front and rear brakes
  • Wheels and tires

Our inspection forms are available online for you to view.  With each maintenance inspection, you are emailed and/or text messaged a secure link to your inspection form.  Photos are included when appropriate and there are also parts diagrams and descriptions via a service library.  This great tool helps with communication and helps you better understand the repair recommendations that we are making.

The Right Oil Filter

Oil filter components may seem trivial, but they play a large part in protecting your engine.  Unlike the budget filters, our Japanese filters are designed specifically for Subaru engines, using the proper type and amount of filtration media, bypass valves set to the correct pressure, molded seals, and a canister design that keeps the oil filter seal from leaking.

Synthetic Oil Choices

With our synthetic Engine Oil Service, we fill your engine with oil from high quality manufacturers that are used by most vehicle factories for factory fills in Japan (Eneos and Idemitsu).  If you are into motorsports or want the ultimate protection, we offer a variety of engine oil lines to meet the harsh demands of track, autocross, and rally driving.  Available manufacturers include Motul, Amsoil, and Redline.

Oil Analysis Available

To “take a look” inside your engine and check the health of your engine lubrication system and engine bearings, we can take a sample of your engine oil and send it out for analysis.  The results as well as a guide will be available online for you to view.  Learn more about your Subaru with this great tool!
