What is Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive?
Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system gives you great balance and control by delivering power to all four wheels all the time. This means you have increased grip capacity for better cornering (under power) and acceleration giving you greater confidence for a safer drive.
I have lost the key to my Subaru. How do I replace it?
In the unfortunate event that you lose the key to your Subaru, it is recommended that you contact the Service Department of Vijay Motors Pvt Ltd. to organize a replacement.
What is a Boxer engine?
While most engines stand vertically, ours lay flat. Sitting horizontally in the engine bay, it moves like a boxer’s fists with a punch a counterpunch action. Lightweight, low and flat, it makes for perfect balance and a much lower centre of gravity. It creates less noise and vibration too.
All of this means greater on-road handling for you. More stability. More performance. More fun. And a more confident drive.
What makes Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive unique?
There are a few characteristics that make the Subaru system unique and superior to most other systems. These include:
The Subaru AWD system has been designed as an integral part of the vehicle from the ground up.
The AWD system always starts with the longitudinally mounted Boxer engine which provides inherent balance and symmetry.
The transmission, center differential and drive shafts are designed as a unit and not added on later.
Power flows to all wheel in a linear manner.
All the driveshafts are the same length and the drivetrain is balanced and symmetrical left to right.
All four wheel get power all the time.
Should I service my Subaru on the due date even if I’m not doing the km’s?
Yes. Your Subaru has an optimum service interval that depends as much on time and driving conditions as it does on distance. Everyone’s driving habits are different and therefore so are the service requirements for your vehicle. You should be servicing your vehicle based either on time or distance, whichever occurs first.
In fact, vehicles that are used for regular short, stop-start trips, such as city driving, are often more at risk of premature engine and battery wear as the engine may be working harder. Other fluids in your car, such as brake and transmission fluids, can also deteriorate over time. So to help preserve and maintain the performance, safety and retained value of your Subaru, make sure you follow the recommended service intervals specific to your model.
Why is regular servicing important?
Keeping to the recommended service intervals involves more than just changing the oil and the odd air filter.
Irregular servicing can also lead to reduced fuel efficiency and increased air pollution, potentially damaging the retained value of your vehicle.
Servicing within the recommended intervals also helps to preserve and maintain the performance, safety and retained value of your Subaru. When you bring your vehicle to an authorized Subaru Service Centre, Subaru technicians will perform various inspections such as inspections of your brake system, tires, driveline, and steering components, and will only use genuine or endorsed Subaru parts and consumables, all vitally important for your safety.
When extra servicing is needed?
If you constantly undergo severe driving conditions or drive in harsh environments, then your vehicle will require additional maintenance.
These conditions could include (but are not limited to) any or all of the following:
– Operating in extremely hot or cold weather
– Living in coastal areas
– Towing a trailer
– Repeated short trips
– Driving on dusty roads
– Driving on rough, muddy or snow-melted roads
– Mountainous area living
– Extensive idling and/or low speed driving for long distances
– Continuous high speed driving (at speeds greater than 140 km/h) for over 2 hours
– Under high performance conditions (e.g. track days)
