Subaru Service & Repair

Subaru is a Japanese company founded in 1953. The Subaru name is a reference to the Pleiades M45 star cluster in Japanese language.

Subaru’s first vehicle to be sold in the United States was the 360. The Subaru 360 had a staggering fuel economy of 66MPG! The 360 was a very small car only weighing in at about 1,000lbs. The engine powering the Subaru 360 was only 356 cc in displacement. The more modern Subaru R1 would later be designed with 360’s design elements.

For almost 50 years the boxer engine has been in every Subaru model produced. Some car manufacturers have used the boxer engine on some car models but never all models like Subaru has.  The boxer engine is useful because of its low center of gravity. This low center of gravity improves vehicle stability and cornering. Also having a boxer engine is safer in the event of a vehicle collision. The boxer engine would be pushed underneath the passenger compartment instead of being pushed into the passenger compartment.

Another notable feature of all Subaru vehicles produced is that they are designed as All Wheel Drive vehicles. This system is known a symmetrical AWD. This AWD system makes sure the vehicle gets maximum traction and power to every wheel at the same time. The Subaru AWD system also helps with stability and control of the vehicles.

Subaru opened a manufacturing plant in Indiana where currently the Impreza, Outback and Legacy models are produced. Today that plant is a green facility because it produces zero landfill waste.
