I have had a pretty Busy Summer and havent had as much time as I would like to Post new articles, but as we head into fall and my son goes back to school I will have more time to post some new articles.
Here is a peak at what I will be posting in September
Subaru has finally come back to earth with Oil recommendations and Turbo Chargers. First they recanted what was originally in the Owners Manual for the 2005 and up Turbo models in a bulletin suggesting that the oil needs to be changed every 3750 miles regardless of use, and recently have jumped on the full synthetic band wagon while maintaining the more frequent service intervals. Its always been my suggestion to use Synthetic oil, and to change that oil every 3,000 miles. We are now starting to see the 2007 Models develop turbo failures. I have just about finished an article about how to prolong your Subaru Turbo charger, and your Subaru Engine. I would like to point out that if you dont frequent a Subaru Repair shop or a Dealership you may be in the dark on both service intervals and type of oil to use.
We have noticed that the newer model Subaru’s have trouble holding their alignment angles much more so than Subaru’s of the past, this is do to the greater number of moving parts involved and the desire to make safety improvements, alignments are not an expensive thing to add to the list of should do’s to your Subaru, and as such we have added a new alignment rack and the new state of the art vehicle alignment system offered by The Snap on Corporation. Starting in 2005 Subaru has drastically updated the suspension systems in most models, and the ride has improved, but there is also now the need for additional maintenance. While alignments have always been important to how a vehicle tracks down the road, and as good prevention to tire wear it is also now a bigger drag on fuel economy than in years past. Look for an article about alignments and Your Subaru soon.
I also have a few new videos to share, including a service point video pointing out where and how to check your Subaru’s vital fluids.
Thanks for reading and please stay tuned
