"The guys were great and really friendly. Top notch job!"
Good service overall
"Good service overall. Needed their loan car for 4 days due to parts supply problems but no issues at all."
"Happy with the customer service and quality of how quickly it was done"
"Had MOT done, excellent service, easy to book online, will use again"
"I left the car at 0900 and went for a walk in the lovely town of Kirriemuir. By not long after 1000, Barrie called me to say the MOT was complete. The car was washed too. Thanks."
"Friendly helpful staff"
"Had an MOT carried out on a 2014 car and they call me up to say to pass its MOT its front brake pads need replacing and advisory that the front discs also need replacing , had to have front pads done as require the car for call outs due to job. Bit suspicious about the front discs needing to be replaced so will be getting a second opinion when get the chance. Also not sure if they replaced the oil with the correct one as stated by the manufacturer as when I watched them they took it from a big drum they had in the work shop."
"Overall I was happy with the service we were provided. However there was a customer poster on the wall that stated that they will return your car freshly washed after a service and our car was not cleaned when I came to collect it. This would have been a really nice if this had been done. Also I was told that we would need new tires and that someone would call on Monday with a quote for us and I have yet to hear any thing back. Those few things would have really improved the experience. I did appreciate the courtesy car for the morning and think this is a great option to have available. The website is also very easy to use for bookings."
"Very friendly and efficient"

"All staff very helpful and attentive. Good value for money. Overall excellent service."
Well informed throughout.
"I booked online and was called and offered a choice of times that were available. The Lady was very polite and professional. I was informed about the advisories and the benefits of having the work done, but with no pressure whatsoever for them to do any work. Great service throughout!"
Japanese firm Subaru’s heritage comes from the skies: the company developed out of the Nakajima Aircraft Company (1917-1945), which in its day was the largest aircraft manufacturer in Asia. In 1954 the company debuted its first automobile with the Subaru 500, Japan’s first mini, but Subaru’s story really started in 1972 with the launch of its symmetrical all wheel drive. It’s this factor above all which makes Subaru stand out from the crowd - 4x4 is standard on every car that Subaru sells in the UK (apart from the Justy city car).
Subaru currently sells seven models into the UK including the popular Outback, the original ‘crossover’ and a trusty and tough SUV. Other much loved models include the Forester, a slightly smaller SUV ideally suited to rural driving, and the Impreza - a rally champion turned practical family car.
Subaru owners display impressive brand loyalty, and for good reason. These cars are known for their longevity - it’s not unusual to see Foresters and Outbacks on the used car sales boards with over 200,000 miles on the clock. Part of the reason for this is Subaru’s unique flat-lying ‘boxer’ engines, with pistons which punch horizontally, like a boxer, rather than up and down as in a traditional engine. This means less vibration and friction, and better lubrication, particularly on start-up. In some ways, Subaru build cars which are seemingly almost indestructible! For safety and reliability across the board they consistently score very highly indeed with drivers and independent reviewers.
About the Subaru Impreza
Imprezas come in two variants - the non-turbo saloon and hatchback, and the rally-honed turbo. The Impreza Turbo is the car that won the World Rally Championship for Subaru, and with its distinctive spoiler and flashy lines, it’s easy for drivers to get carried away tearing around country lanes. As you would imagine, Imprezas deliver tremendous performance and handling - but you pay for the experience as it’s a thirsty beast! The suspension tends to be a weak area with some owners reporting this as a known issue, as well as occasional oil leaks and engine warning lights due to failed spark plug wires.
Common Problems with Subaru
As we said above, with a Subaru you’re driving one of the most consistently reliable cars on the road. But every make has its known issues, and for Subaru the suspension seems to be an occasionally problematic area, as well as head gasket leaks, at least for certain Subaru years and models.
