Subaru Maintenance and Repair Costs

Like Toyotas, Fords, and Hondas, Subarus are popular vehicles in the US. If you’re a new or prospective owner, you may have questions: Are Subarus reliable cars? And are Subarus expensive to fix should you run into any maintenance issues? What kind of Subaru repair costs can you expect to pay? Find out the answers below.

Are Subarus Expensive to Fix?

Depending on where you live, you probably already see a lot of Subarus on the road. They are very popular with people who enjoy getting outdoors and having a family car they can take off-road. They’re also popular in areas with harsh winters, since their all-wheel drive can help them navigate slick roads.

But are they worth the benefits? One point to note is that Subarus are expensive to fix. In fact, over the first 5 to 10 years, Subaru maintenance costs can actually be more than some luxury cars.

There are a number of reasons for this. First, there are fewer Subaru on the market than other major brands like Honda, so it can be harder to find parts.

It can thus also be harder to find Subaru-certified repair specialists who know how to fix Subarus. Their engine design and all-wheel drive make them more complex to repair. If you have someone like the experts at Cascade Collision who can fix Subaru’s, then you’re in luck. If not, it can be a challenge.

Back to that legendary all-wheel drive. While it makes sense for people living through harsh winters, that feature comes with a real downside. If one tire needs to be replaced, you will likely have to replace all four instead of just two like you would with a two-wheel-drive vehicle. All-wheel drive also tends to wear out all the tires more quickly, so you have to deal with that expense on a regular basis.

Are Subarus Reliable Cars?

There is some good news for Subaru owners: They do tend to be reliable cars. In fact, they average about 25% fewer visits to the repair shop than the average vehicle. That’s 0.3 visits per year compared to 0.4 on average.

Overall, Subarus rank in the top half of all major makes in terms of reliability. The question of whether or not it’s the right car for you depends on your needs, budget, and where you live.

  • If you utilize a feature like all-wheel drive regularly, it could be just right for you.
  • On the other hand, if you live in a mild climate and don’t head for rougher roads very often, it’s likely not worth the expense of maintaining a Subaru.
