We understand that the Subaru is a very iconic vehicle to the Portland region and has developed a unique culture of enthusiasts.

What are the most common Subaru repairs in Portland we perform?

  • Head gasket leaks – This is common in a number of model years. A head gasket replacement is advisable if you buy used and aren’t sure if it has been done.
  • A/C System O-ring replacement – We typically see this complaint in the summer. A bad O-ring can cause your Subaru AC system to blow hot instead of cold.
  • Worn front suspension bushings – Though it’s less common in our more humid climate, dry summers have been increasing front bushing failures.
  • Oil leaks – These occur most often when the pan gaskets or oil cooler O-ring wears out. We can replace these and stop oil leaks.
  • C/V Axle boots – Boots wear in all models, but because Subaru DOJ boots are so close to the exhaust they wear more quickly and may even split.

  • Radiator failure – This is more common in higher vehicles. Make sure to properly maintain your radiator and have hoses checked regularly.
  • Oil issues – Pay attention to which oil you put into your car. Mobile 1 5W-30 has been known to disagree with Subaru engines and thin out before it should.
  • Window seals – In vehicles with framelss doors, window and door seals can degrade much faster. Maintaining these is the best way to avoid coming in for a leak.
  • Headlights burn out – This is most common in the Outback and is due to electrical issues. We can diagnose and repair your vehicle to save your lights from burning out.
  • Bad torque converter – If your vehicle is stalling out during high speed braking, it may be your torque converter. This is a safety hazard. Come in for repairs.
