Independent vs Certified Service

Independent Service Shops vs. Certified Subaru Service

Subaru makes great cars for getting around Santa Cruz County. The popular AWD car gets great fuel economy, lasts a long time, and is easy to maintain with factory Subaru service. Santa Cruz Subaru has state-of-the-art service bays and a full supply of factory Subaru OEM parts to ensure your car runs its best for as long as possible. A certified Subaru service facility is geared specifically for your vehicle and has a full supply of OEM parts to provide quality maintenance and repairs when needed. An independent service shop only has aftermarket parts that might or might not fit properly. The technicians at an independent service shop also lack the factory training our Subaru service personnel receive to ensure quality work, as well as parts, go into maintaining your Subaru.

Subaru Service

Benefits from Subaru OEM Parts

A certified Subaru service focuses specifically on your make and model Subaru. The same Subaru engineers who designed and built your car also created the factory Subaru service. The service is based on the mileage and year your car was built. It takes into account the service life of the parts used to build your car. The service schedule helps us better focus on the systems and parts most likely needing service based on the age and mileage on your car. We use the same factory OEM parts Subaru used to build your car. That ensures we can make it run like new again with parts that always fit and work perfectly.

Other Benefits of Subaru Factory Service

An official Subaru service facility like Santa Cruz Subaru provides standardized Subaru services. That ensures you get top-flight service from factory-trained mechanics who are best equipped to maintain your Subaru. An independent shop does not have the same diagnostic tools and Subaru-specific parts to ensure a perfect fit and quality repairs whenever needed. Your factory-trained Subaru mechanic is best suited for properly maintaining your car so that it gives you the best service and fuel economy.
