Diagnosis of any engine issue is normally quick and inexpensive as our mechanics are experts in finding and fixing the common Subaru problems. For instance, recent Forester models (2011, 2014 & 2015) have had higher than usual reported problems of oil consumption due to leaking head gaskets. This is normally a straight forward Subaru engine repair service that can leave your engine better then new.
