Subaru Auto Glass & Windshield Replacement
Subaru is the automotive brand from Fuji Heavy Industries out of Japan. When they released the Subaru Outback and it’s all wheel drive. The tagline “the world’s first sport utility wagon” was used and “Crocodile Dundee” was starred in an Outback in a number of rugged Australian locations. The company began to attract young and educated customers who liked the idea of a alternative to the larger SUV. Subaru has historically been popular in the Northeastern United States as well as the Pacific Northwest.
Subaru is unique in that they use a “Boxer” engine in their vehicles. A Boxer engine is a flat engine with horizontally-opposed pistons. This lower the center of gravity and combined with the all wheel drive make for a better handling vehicle. Currently, only Subaru and Porsche use a flat engine.
