They were very helpful, and even though the booking hadn't shown that I'd requested a courtesy car, they did manage to sort one for me on the day. Very open and honest garage, not trying to sell me things or change things I didn't need. Very very happy with them, and would definitely use them again."

Your car's gearbox is a complex mechanical system that transmits the power from the engine firstly to the drive shafts and then to the wheels. A manual gearbox experiences more wear and tear over time than most other parts of your car, due to the heat and friction produced by its many moving parts and components.
And of course it is the gearbox that allows you to accelerate from stationary to speed as you move up through the gears - not to mention allowing you to go backwards into that tight parking spot!
Although gearboxes are designed to carry the enormous loads caused by transmitting the engine's power, some wear is inevitable. Mostly, the gearbox will still work with some wear, but occasionally problems can occur.
From time to time, you should have the gearbox oil checked, and changed if necessary. We can help you find a garage near you to do this.
If your gearbox is not looked after, major issues are bound to arise. You should always get any worrying symptoms checked out by a professional as soon they develop.
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.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Fleet or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
