4 Reasons to Choose an Authorized Subaru Service Center for your Maintenance Needs

Reasons to Get Service at Authorized Dealer

When you sit down at a card table in Vegas, you never know what you're gonna get from the dealer - but when it comes to maintaining your Subaru, taking your car anywhere but the dealer is the real gamble.

While there are plenty of reputable mechanics and quality third-party shops, there are still those who are looking to take you for a ride. A less reputable mechanic might overcharge you for complicated services your vehicle doesn't really need. He might even use a part that's of poor quality or a bad fit for your vehicle, causing a drop in performance and efficiency. And that's just the start.

Protect Your Subaru with genuine Subaru Parts and Accessories from Carlsen Subaru

Even if you do find one of the good, honest auto shops out there, there are some things they're just not equipped to do the way an authorized Subaru service center is. The smartest way to take care of your new Subaru vehicle? Bring it back to the dealership for all regular maintenance and repairs. It's the best way to make your Subaru last as long as possible. Here are 4 reasons why!

Reason #1: Easy Online Scheduling

Many independent garages and small service centers don't have the systems in place to take appointments online - but we do at Carlsen Subaru! Just visit this link, give us your particulars and select the available time slot that works for you. When you arrive for your appointment, we'll already be expecting you. We'll get right to work on your vehicle while you enjoy our comfortable waiting area, or arrange for alternate transportation.

Our certified Subaru Service professionals at Carlsen Subaru will keep your vehicle in top condition!

Reason #2: Factory-Trained Expert Technicians

The technicians who'll work on your car in our service department at Carlsen Subaru - and at all authorized Subaru dealerships - are specially trained right at the factory to work exclusively on Subaru vehicles. Meanwhile, the technicians at national auto service chains are trained to work on as wide a variety of vehicles as possible. Now, does that make sense?

Well, it certainly makes sense to the service chain, who wants to provide service for as many vehicles as possible regardless of make or model. But Subaru technology is special. From the horizontally-designed BOXER® engine to Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, Subaru vehicles are equipped with unique engineering. To properly maintain and repair a Subaru, it's always a good idea to turn to those who know it best. That logic is closely related to our next point:

Reason #3: Genuine Subaru OEM Parts

When you take your Subaru to a national service chain, you might be getting cut-rate parts. That's because third-party service garages use aftermarket parts - parts made by third parties to replace components on your vehicle. The quality and fit of aftermarket parts varies widely. Some aftermarket manufacturers make high-quality parts indistinguishable in performance from the OEM equivalent. But not all of them! Some aftermarket parts will wear out faster and perform poorly on your car. It's hard to know exactly what you're getting from other service centers.

An authorized Subaru dealership service department is different. We'll use OEM parts direct from the factory to service your vehicle when possible. That guarantees a superior fit and ideal performance on your vehicle whenever repairs are carried out. And when we use aftermarket parts, we'll only use high-quality components approved by Subaru for use on your vehicle. This ensures a long-lasting fix other service centers can't always compete with.

And that's not to mention the new parts warranty! All Genuine Subaru OEM parts installed on your vehicle by an authorized service center will come with a limited warranty. If anything goes wrong with the part during the warranty period - from incidental damage to wear and tear to problems related to incorrect installation - you'll be protected.


Reason #4: Competitive Pricing

Most people are under the impression that maintenance carried out by dealership service centers will cost far more than maintenance performed at a third-party shop. This isn't always true! In some cases, you may pay a small premium for OEM parts and expert service by factory-trained technicians - but in many others, our prices are comparable to the local competition. Best of all, we post monthly service coupons that make our already competitive prices even better!

And when you factor in the additional costs associated with wear-and-tear from low quality motor oil and ill-fitting replacement parts, you're just as likely to save money at our service center.
