  • Subaru offers free-of-charge vehicle inspection and top-up of essential fluids
  • Checks will help owners keep All-Wheel Drive cars running in all conditions
  • Enviable reliability and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive ensure Subaru owners stay mobile in poor conditions

Subaru UK has today launched a free winter vehicle level check and top-up of essential fluids for all Subaru models at its nationwide dealer network.

Recent research from the AA suggests that 80% of roadside breakdowns could be avoided if fluid levels were checked and topped-up regularly, and Subaru is offering this service to customers, absolutely free.

The inspection, carried out by trained Subaru technicians, includes checking tyre pressures, and topping up engine and gearbox oil, the engine coolant and screen wash.  A full visual health check will also ensure that cars are operating to the best of their abilities.

Haydn Davies, Marketing Director of Subaru UK, commented: “Winter brings more hazardous driving conditions, with cold temperatures, damp or icy roads and poor visibility.  Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system is already designed to keep our customers as safe as possible whatever the weather, while an enviable reliability record helps keep owners mobile, too. At the same time we like our dealers to have regular contact with our customers so we hope many of them will make use of this latest offer.”

Subaru UK’s latest offer for the season comes on top of the opportunity to store wheels and tyres at the dealer over winter, as part of the ground-breaking ETC aftersales package.
