Complete Subaru Maintenance
Keep your vehicle in top shape by sticking to the manufacturer’s maintenance schedule. While there is some variance from year to year, Accurate can help you meet these important milestones:
5,000 miles - Oil and filter change (Usually $60 or less)
30,000 miles – Automatic/Manual transmission fluid & front/back differential fluid
60,000 miles – Replace brake fluid and spark plugs
100,000 miles – Timing belt (if equipped)
We will evaluate the condition of other systems in your vehicle and make recommendations for coolant, power steering and other services only when needed.
Subaru Brake Service
Brakes are the most important system in your vehicle. Don’t wait to hear a squeak or grinding noise coming from your brakes to have the checked out. Get a free brake check with a routine oil service, or just stop by to have us take a look.
Brake service includes new brake pads or shoes and resurfacing your existing brake rotors or drums. It’s critical to have brake rotors perfectly flat and smooth in order to eliminate brake pulsation that often happens when braking downhill.
Complete front or rear axle (right and left side) brake jobs for your Subaru are $270 or less at Accurate.
Hearing a clink, clank, clunk or other unusual noises from your vehicle? Keep your Subaru suspension safe and strong. We’ll inspect your vehicle’s suspension system to identify and correct any type of suspension problem including worn bushing, ball joints, tie rods and shocks and struts.
Get better and safer handling by keeping your Subaru suspension in good repair.
Clutch and Transmission
If you drive a manual/stick shift Subaru, you know the fun and feeling of control you have with your car. Your clutch takes a lot of punishment – especially in traffic.
We’ll get your car back to shifting like new. Same day service is the norm, and includes industry and Subaru best practices for a professional, long-lasting repair.
Subaru Engine Work
While Subaru vehicles are of excellent quality and very reliable, we often see head gasket problems and even entire engine failure caused by overheating, or just wear. When it happens, you have choices about how to get your vehicle back to top condition. Part of our service is to show you the best - and most economical - strategy to get you back on the road.
If you DO need to replace your engine, Accurate will help you evaluate the alternatives:
A brand-new Subaru engine may be the right choice if you’re looking at the long term. Along with installing a new engine, we would typically replace parts like the alternator, power steering pump, A/C compressor and clutch (if equipped).
A new engine costs between $5,500 and $7,000, plus roughly $2,000 for professional installation by our factory-trained, ASE-certified technicians. A new engine comes with a 3-year, 36,000-mile warranty on parts and labor.
We can rebuild your engine using new internal parts. A rebuild generally includes:
- Complete gasket set
- New pistons
- New piston rings
- New main bearings
- New rod bearings
- Thrust washers & freeze plugs (if applicable)
An engine rebuild will cost roughly $3,000 - $5,000 depending on the condition of other parts on the vehicle, e.g. if we need to replace an alternator, power steering pump, etc. Removal and installation will cost roughly $2,000. Accurate will warranty your engine parts and labor for 2 years/24,000 miles.
The advantage of a remanufactured engine is that it’s completely disassembled down to bare parts and most components are re-machined. You essentially have a new engine, but with parts that were previously used.
A remanufactured engine will save from $1,000 - $2,000 from a brand new one, and cost about $1,000 more than rebuilding your old engine. Accurate will warranty your engine installation for 2 years/24,000 miles.
A used engine is the least expensive approached, but used engines are only warrantied for 90 days. You have many choices in used engines for your Subaru vehicle including sourcing a “JDM” engine with low miles, or Accurate will locate a low-mileage engine from a recycler.
A used engine can cost $3,000 to $6,000 including installation. The cost variance depends on the condition of your old engine and peripheral parts.
Whatever choice you make, Accurate will provide the same level of quality service! You’ll drive out with your Subaru ready for your next adventure!
