Maybe an idea to get UK members to recommend a garage /mechanic and their location in the UK. This could then make easy access for people trying to find a tried and trusted garage /mechanic in their area of the UK.

Just my penniesworth.

Good idea.

Especially those who are new to the Subaru world and who don't want to go down the stealer route.

I can highly recommend Cotswold Subaru near Witney Oxfordshire.
Cotswolds Subaru home page

They look after the wifes Renault too :biggrin:
+1 for Cotswold (WURX on eBay IIRC) - I would go so far as to say their customer service is the best I've received from any garage.

I can also recommend Simpsons in Swindon and TH White in Cirencester - have used both recently and was very happy with them.

Subaru4You are also good though judging by some of the quotes I've heard they've given recently, they do seem to be getting a bit expensive... number of hours quoted for jobs going up to cover a lower hourly rate perhaps?

Other than that, my local mechanic Tim is also great when I need a hand working on mine - very experienced, self-employed and not VAT registered!!! :biggrin:

One to avoid:

Keith Price Subaru, Abergavenny.

They lied to me about my car and mis diagnosed a fault.

I was told by KP that I needed two front wheel bearings, caliper and pads which was proved to be wrong by another dealer. A few days after the KP diagnosis the clutch fingers on the pressure plate broke off. Clutch replaced by a real Subaru dealer (carstins) under warranty with no hassle. KP do not have a clue so they make it up to keep their cashflow going and not your car!
