LOCAL PROFESSIONALS FOR SUBARU CARE AND MAINTENANCE
WE LOVE SUBARUS
At Ashland Automotive, our certified technicians perform full service automotive maintenance and repair for Subarus. With nearly all our staff owning at least one Subaru, we’re very familiar with the regular needs of the Valley’s most popular make of vehicle. The Subaru works so well for our geographical location because of its versatility. Most, but not all Subarus are all-wheel-drive (AWD), which means they’ll require a little more attention than a typical front-wheel-drive vehicle. For instance, when replacing tires on an AWD vehicle, all four tires are replaced together, thus preventing damage to the transfer case. Also, transfer case and rear differential fluids need to be replaced at regular intervals.
EXPERT SUBARU MAINTENANCE
With all the greatness of a Subaru, no car is without a weakness. Cylinder head gaskets commonly fail on Subaru engines starting around model years 1996. We have replaced hundreds of head gaskets on these engines. We follow the factory-specified method for changing the gaskets and use only factory gaskets. We also present options to the customer for further maintenance while reassembling the engine. Performing other repairs while replacing the head gaskets can save a customer lots of money in the long run.
YOUR LOCAL CHOICE FOR SUBARU MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR
One such additional repair is the Subaru timing belt. In order to replace cylinder head gaskets, the timing belt must be removed. Therefore, if the belt is old or has high mileage, we recommend changing it along with the belt tensioner and roller bearings at the same time. We also recommend changing the crankshaft seals and camshaft seals at this time. With the right information the customer can make the choice that is right for them.
We Love Happy Customers
TRUST, VALUE, AND CONFIDENCE
"As a single woman, it had been difficult to find a mechanic who 1) didn’t overcharge me or 2) treat me as a ditz who doesn’t know anything about cars. Zach does neither. He always tells me the way it is, explaining what I don’t understand and giving me all the information I need to make my own choice about my car repairs. I totally trust him. He’s a gem!"
“I have lived in the Valley for ten years and I finally have a trustworthy master level technician to work on my cars. Zach is professional and completely trustworthy. You can’t go wrong when taking your car to get worked on here.”
“Well a last minute call to this business and they delivered on their promise. The prices were a bit “Bay Area”, but in this case it was worth it. They are knowledgeable and competent, I liked dealing with them. They also help people in the community to buy and sell their cars. Thanks Ashland Automotive.”
“I’ve been bringing my Audi here since I moved to Ashland in 2011, and keep coming back. Great service, fair prices and nice people to work with. Zach and his crew are tops!”
