Subaru – The Specifications

Subaru’s get their well-known performance from the powerhouse Boxer engine that spins the wheels. A lot of machine shops actually tend to shy away from handling Subaru Engines. The boxer engine is much more complicated than traditional motors in the straight orientation or V-shaped variety. What makes it more complicated to work on these type of engines is the availability of parts and the difficulty in locating OEM replacements. The rebuilds are also particularly tricky and take many more hours to complete versus domestic brands that are found in numerous vehicles. Rebuilding a Subarus’ boxer engine can take many hours to complete, in addition to removing the engine from the car and putting it back into the car. However, our specialization has managed to ensure that emerge conveniently on top because there is a considerable demand for OE replacement drop-in units. This is mainly due to the fact that Subaru is a popular vehicle in this part of the country. We are pleased to offer numerous San Diego automotive services near me that can help keep your Subaru on the road and running for many miles to come.

We have a good reputation, and that’s because we deliver high quality. This is also something which helps us draw new business – people trust us. We simply get results because we are well aware of the specifications of the Subaru engine and vehicle as a whole.We are fully aware of the ins and outs of the models, and that’s why we get results.


Not every machine shop offers insurance on the work they carried out. This is because they don’t want to bear the responsibilities of potential malfunctions and issues with the parts that they’ve replaced or repaired because parts can be expensive. Top-notch garages are always going to offer insurance which means they expose themselves to potential losses. We are glad to say, we are one of those shops. Our customers and their vehicles will always come first and while we can’t always guarentee that something won’t happen, we do offer the added protection that if it does, parts can be replaced--at no cost to our customers.
