Add in our all-wheel drive system, which is standard across all models (and which our competitors might only equip on more expensive models), and you will notice that Subaru’s are well priced against our competitors within the same vehicle segments.
Maintaining a Subaru does not need to be a costly affair. Through our three-year/75 000km maintenance plan period, we cover all maintenance and service costs, apart from tyres, glass and accident repair. Once exhausted, you will find that our parts and labour rates are priced in line with the industry standards, and might in some cases be cheaper on certain parts baskets.
Left-hand drive models for the North American market are built by Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. (SIA). Based in Indiana, this plant produces the Subaru Outback, Legacy and Impreza line of vehicles.
Additionally, the Tan Chong Motor Group runs a completely-knocked-down assembly line in Segambut for Subaru XV and Forester SUV models for Malaysia, which are also exported to Thailand.
The safety of the SAWD is a good reason to buy a Subaru. Any owner will vouch for its place as a life-saving safety benefit.
And if you compare the fuel consumption of a Subaru model with SAWD to that of a competitor two-wheel drive vehicle, you will notice that we match or come very close to two-wheel fuel consumption levels. So, no need to worry about using more fuel with Subaru’s SAWD system.
Never tow a trailer when the temporary spare tyre is used. The temporary spare tyre is not designed to sustain the towing load. Use of the temporary spare tyre when towing can result in its failure and/or less stability of the vehicle, which may lead to an accident. The temporary spare tyre is smaller and lighter than a conventional tyre and is designed for emergency use only. Reinstall the conventional tyre as soon as possible.
When using the temporary spare tire, note the following precautions:
• Do not exceed 80km/h.
• Do not use more than one temporary spare tyre at the same time.
• Do not drive over obstacles with the temporary spare tyre. This tyre has a smaller diameter, so road clearance is reduced.
• The temporary spare tyre must be used only on a rear wheel. If a front wheel tyre gets punctured, replace the wheel with a rear wheel and install the temporary spare tyre in place of the removed rear wheel.
Subaru is the Japanese name for the Pleiades star cluster, which in turn inspires the Subaru logo and alludes to the five companies that merged to create FHI. The word "subaru" means "united" in Japanese. Fuji Heavy Industries has used the term to describe how the Pleiades constellation is a unification of the stars.
In astronomy, the Pleiades is an open star cluster located in the constellation of Taurus. The cluster is also known as the Seven Sisters and Messier 45, and contains hot, blue, extremely luminous B-type stars. It is among the nearest star clusters to Earth and also the most obvious cluster to the naked eye in the night sky.
Its main business is supporting Toyota Motor's automobile business and other Toyota Group companies. Toyota Tsusho's business is very diverse, spanning industrial, commercial and consumer sectors. Business areas run the gamut, including industrial raw materials, agricultural products and high technology.
