subaru vehicles are unique. From their distinctive design to their state-of-the-art engineering, Subaru vehicles set themselves apart from everything else on the road. That distinctiveness was probably one of the reasons why you purchased your Subaru vehicle, and it's also one of the most important reasons to have it maintained by fully certified Subaru technicians.
Subaru vehicles are designed to be as trouble-free as possible, but still require regular maintenance and occasional repairs. Subaru of America, Inc. (SOA), through its nearly 600 dealers, has more than 4,500 trained technicians across the country ready to help, and the ongoing technician training programs offered by Subaru make sure every technician is thoroughly educated in the vehicles' systems. The training program enables technicians to properly repair a customer's vehicle the first time, at a reasonable cost and within a reasonable amount of time.
Many Subaru technicians have two or more years of post-secondary
education in automotive technology, and five or more years of direct
work experience with Subaru vehicles. They've also passed
Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification, an independent
automotive testing program, in eight automotive testing areas. In
addition, they have completed months of Subaru-specific training and
also receive up to a week of Subaru update training annually just to
keep pace with the latest changes.
Subaru technicians can achieve levels of technical certification beyond the basic requirements. These certification levels (Specialist, Master and Senior Master) are awarded based on the amount of training, dealer experience and ASE certification each technician attains.
