Berkeley Subaru Legacy Service and Repair | Berkeley Bob's

Servicing your Subaru Legacy at Berkeley Bob’s satisfies the manufacturer requirements to maintain your factory warranty.

We have many years of experience servicing and repairing Subaru vehicles including Subaru Legacy. Though Subaru Legacy is the flagship of the Subaru line it’s not without faults.  Believe it or not, the 2015 Subaru Legacy had problems with the gas cap, while the 2011 Legacy had issues with headlight bulbs burning out prematurely. On the serious side, the 2009 Legacy is known for engine failures requiring engine replacement while the 2010 Legacy owners encountered transmission issues. That’s just a quick synopsis of concerns we’ve run into and not every vehicle made in those years will have those problems.  Overall though most Legacy owners find driving Subaru to be a delight. 

Since Subaru Legacy may have issues with excessive oil consumption like other Subaru models, we recommend checking the engine oil levels on a regular basis.  In addition, it’s imperative to have regular oil services to prevent premature engine wear.  The Legacy can also have issues with oil leakage.  Because of these common issues we advise only having professional servicing on your Legacy.  At Berkeley Bob’s we check for those concerns during a mileage interval service.  As part of your regular service visit, we also provide a complimentary inspection including important components such as tire condition and wear, exterior light function, brake pad thickness, suspension and axle wear.  We will test your battery and check the effectiveness of various system fluids.  We want to keep you up to date on the current state and health of your Subaru Legacy.  If there are any issues that need to be addressed we will help you prioritize the repairs as well as fitting them into your schedule and budget. 

When you bring your Legacy to our Berkeley auto repair shop you will be greeted by our friendly staff and your vehicle will be serviced by our nationally-recognized ASE certified, highly trained mechanics. You can also expect:
