Suggested Subaru mechanic in peninsula?

Been looking to get some routine service done, but for some reason I can't find a sticky. Maybe it's time?

Did a search, but it seems to be scattered. Yelp as well, but I'd trust folks here more than the average yelper...

In anycase, I'm around ~60k. Any recommendations around San Mateo/Belmont/San Carlos/Redwood City would be appreciated!

AutoHQ in Mountain View is probably your best bet Auto Headquarter - JDM performance in SF Bay Area

Adam at AA Motorworks is pretty great too, also in Mt. View.

If you ask 10 members here what their favorite shop in X area is, you're going to get 12 answers, so your mileage may vary.

AutoHQ and AA are good shops. If you're willing to go across the bridge, there's RBMS and GST in Hayward that are good as well.

Some other notable shops closer to you, SB Garage and Elite Performance. But they're not exactly Subaru specific.

RBMS: https://www.yelp.com/biz/rbms-auto-care-hayward
GST: http://www.gstmotorsports.com
AA: https://aamotorworks.com/#/home
AutoHQ: Auto Headquarter - JDM performance in SF Bay Area
SBG: https://sb-garage.com/
Elite: https://eliteperformance-us.com/

I don't know if you could call Shiv's reputation mixed. Everyone I know thinks he's a POS

I'm one of the minority I guess cause I always had a decent relationship with Shiv and found him to be extremely smart as well.
