Subaru Service Center

There is no better feeling than the first time you drive your new Subaru off our lot. A brand new car delivers a crisp, smooth drive, immediately responding to your every touch. A new car drives like a dream, but if you want to keep it that way, you need to have regular maintenance done.

Regular service is the easiest way to keep your car running smoothly. Even a brand as rugged and reliable as Subaru still needs the occasional tune up. At our service center in Gastonia, we offer quality service at competitive prices. Here are just a few of the services we offer:

Oil Changes

Oil is the lifeblood of your engine. As the engine operates, the moving pieces rub against each other, generating friction and heat. This would normally cause the parts to wear down; however, motor oil thinly coats all the moving parts, reducing friction and taking away heat. This helps the engine run smoothly and efficiently. However, as the oil absorbs heat, it eventually breaks down; it starts to perform its job less effectively, and can even start to form engine-clogging sludge. While your body can make new blood, your car can't make new oil; it needs your help. Changing the oil is a necessary part of keeping your car running properly. Although changing the oil can sometimes be a pain, just remember: it's a lot easier than replacing the engine.

Tire Alignments and Rotations

While tire alignments and rotations are important, not everyone is aware why. Ideally, your cars wheels should be parallel to each other and perpendicular to the road. This gives the most traction, the best performance, and decreases wear on your tires. Unfortunately, over time your wheels can get knocked slightly out of alignment by bumps or holes in the road. Not only is this bad for your tires, but it can even cause your vehicle to pull slightly to the side as you drive. Our service department will put your wheels back in the right place.

While it's true that your tires rotate while you drive, that's not the kind of tire rotation that your car needs. Although all your tires touch the road at the same time, they all undergo different levels of wear-and-tear. Since the engine is in the front of the vehicle, the front tires often have more weight on them than the back wheels. The front tires also wear more on the outsides since the tire leans when you turn, and the rear tires generally wear evenly. The tires wear differently depending on if the vehicle is front or rear-wheel drive. When tires all have the same amount of wear, they are able to deliver better traction. Rotating tires also helps them all wear down more evenly, extending the lifespan of your tires. It even makes buying new tires more convenient; when your rotated tires wear down, you just buy a new set of four, instead of buying pairs or individual tires as needed.

Our service center is filled with top-of-the-line Subaru technicians. They know their way around every kind of Subaru vehicle inside and out. We also have state-of-the-art diagnostic systems letting us find the problem and fix it that much faster. Not only are our technicians Subaru experts, we also use only original equipment manufacturer Subaru parts. While you may get a one-size-fits-all part at a third-party dealer, we know that real Subaru vehicles deserve real Subaru parts. Our service center delivers the best service and the best parts. At Tindol Subaru, you're in good hands.
