Looking for a place to get my 2011 Outback serviced other than a dealer. Other than warranty work, can any good auto repair shop service my car? Thanks.
 
Reputation of the shop is most important. If you find one with good recommendations that would be best. There are nuances to Subaru's for sure, but for most service needs they are no different than most. About the worst routine maintenance item is the spark plugs being that it's a boxer engine. However, they are not much worse than transverse mount 6 cylinder vehicles.
 
As soon as it passed to out-of-warranty, we began using an independent shop for all work - from regular service to the expensive higher-mileage service (e.g. belt/water pump/gasket/fluid replacement). No problems and at 1/3 to 1/2 the cost. Also, several friends and ourselves had poor experiences with our local dealer's service shop. The dealership has since changed names, so perhaps things have improved with new management, but we're happy with the independent shop.
