Subaru vehicles, particularly older models, are well known for excessive oil consumption. They also have a tendency to develop oil leaks, which can, in turn, damage other components. We highly recommend regular oil service – it extends engine life, it extends tire life, and it gives us an opportunity to spot oil leaks, or low engine oil levels.   

Regular Subaru Forester service at our auto repair shop in Walnut Creek fulfills Subaru requirements to maintain manufacturer warranty.

Whenever you bring your Forester to our Walnut Creek auto repair shop, whether for minor service or major repairs, we offer a complimentary digital vehicle inspection. We check various subsystems and components of your vehicle looking for developing problems. We provide you with an electronic copy of the results, so you can have a record of the overall health of your Forester. 

There are some Forester models that require particular attention – if you own one of those, following a regular maintenance schedule is particularly important. 2014 model suffered from broken coil springs, while the 2015 Forester had a tendency to develop engine problems, and transmission issues as well. 2017 Subaru Forester transmission is known for causing jerking/lurching forward motions. If you own one of these model years, it does not necessarily mean that your particular vehicle will develop these problems, but it is good to be forewarned.
