Subarus are great cars. They offer excellent safety and protection in accidents. But no car is immune to collision damage. After dealing with the immediate aftermath of an accident, you may also need to file an insurance claim and get your Subaru inspected and repaired.

The cost of collision repair is a concern for just about everyone, regardless of make and model. But the type of car you drive can impact repairs, and understanding what to expect in terms of cost can help ensure you choose a reputable and trustworthy Subaru repair shop after a collision. We’re here to break down everything you need to know!


Typical Subaru Repair Costs

Subaru parts and features tend to be more specialized than some other manufacturers. This means that Subaru repairs can be slightly more expensive when compared to mid-range and domestic cars. Average annual maintenance and repair costs for Subarus sit at about $617, but a significant collision will result in much higher-than-average costs.

As a certified Subaru collision repair center, Mackin’s Auto Body can provide you with a fast, accurate quote for your repair needs. We’re always upfront about cost estimates and repair timelines so you can plan ahead and get back on the road as quickly and affordably as possible.

Restoring a vehicle after an accident is rarely a simple and straightforward process. Every situation is unique, and the cost of Subaru repairs can vary significantly depending on a variety of factors, including:

  • The specifics of the collision (speed, angle, other involved vehicles, etc.)
  • Your car’s model and year
  • The type of damage and repair complexity
  • Replacement parts (OEM vs aftermarket parts)

No situation is exactly like the next. That’s why any good Subaru repair shop will want to inspect your vehicle and assess the damage in person before providing you with a personalized estimate.


Next Steps After an Accident

In the immediate aftermath of a car accident, safety should always be top priority for everyone involved. Here are essential steps to take in the event of a collision on the road:

  • If possible, move your car to a safe location away from oncoming traffic.
  • Turn your hazard lights on.
  • Check for injuries.
  • Call 911 to the scene and request medical attention if required.
  • Inspect your vehicle and take photos.

The next step is to file an insurance claim and get your Subaru professionally assessed and repaired as quickly as possible. Mackin’s is dedicated to making the entire post-collision process as simple and stress-free as possible with reliable accident resources.
