Seeking non-dealer recommendation for Subaru mechanic in Sacramento

Now that our lease is up and we bought the Forester (and we're no longer under factory warranty), I'm seeking recommendations for a reliable Subaru mechanic in Sacramento. Not looking for the cheapest, rather someone reliable, reputable, and friendly to work with.

Prefer not to use a dealer for the sake of price and being able to talk directly with the mechanic instead of a guy with a clipboard. Plus, the nearest dealer isn't particularly convenient.

Thanks in advance.

I'd highly recommend FW Motorsports in Rocklin. Paul, the owner, has been in the Subaru community for a very long time and has built a reputation for top notch service.

Sacramento Specialty Automotive has been fair and honest with me several times for scheduled maintenance, alignment etc.

These guys for my Toyotas and they now have Subi tech too.

With that said, always trust but verify lol.
