Brought it in for some electrical problems, they don’t normally do Subarus, but they did great diagnostics work regardless. I thought it was a faulty alternator, but they found that was fine, and it was a battery issue. Additionally, they did extra diagnostic work, and found the mass airflow sensor was faulty. After they replaced that, the performance change was very obvious (additional cost wasn’t much relatively speaking).
With an older car, getting preventative maintenance is a huge deal, saves a lot in the long run. Little things like fixing an O2 sensor - which is not that big a fix - immediately had my car idling smoother and being more responsive with the accelerator (manual transmission, so the change in responsiveness and performance are obvious right away). Very hard to find shops that do preventative maintenance like that.
Labor prices are what I would expect (they didn’t itemize much, but I would assume an hour for diagnostics, an hour for repairs, which is reasonable for the work. They send you an email to authorize all work for the record), if not a bit on the low side actually. Similarly, markup on parts was about average, battery was a bit less than I would have expected, the sensor - they didn’t clearly state which sensor it was, but looking up what it could have been (bit of range depending) wasn’t anything crazy.
Overall, hoping they’ll work on my Forester again despite not normally working on Subarus. Very pleased with the work.
