Subaru Repair In Bellingham, WA

When you see a Subaru, it usually has a cargo area full of camping gear and a dog riding shotgun. That's because Subarus are the perfect vehicle for escaping the city and getting away into the backcountry. If you take care of your Subaru, it will reward you with many years of reliable service - whether going to the The Bellingham Farmers Market or driving to Mount Baker for a snowboarding session. At Rod's Japanese Auto Care, we can help you do just that. Since 2002, we have been providing affordable repairs to Subaru owners in Bellingham and the surrounding areas.

Subarus are fantastic vehicles, but they do have some known problems. Late 90s and 2000s models often suffer from head gasket failure, which is an extensive repair. Fortunately, we offer a permanent fix for Subaru head gasket problems. We are also well versed in other common Subaru repairs such as air conditioning malfunctions and CV axle failure. We begin each repair by providing a complete inspection of the vehicle. Once a diagnosis has been made, one of our friendly service advisors will counsel you on the best options for you and your vehicle. Of course, we never perform any work without your approval.
