    Subaru apprentice tech. new member

    6 months ago had the choice between VW and Subaru to finish my apprenticeship. I've always been more comfortable with Japanese cars so I chose Subaru. So far I've made the right choice.
    I've never owned a subaru, I've owned four Datsun z cars and have always been rwd biased. But rwd cars suck in Northern Canada so I might convert.
    Hopefully I can learn something from this sight

    whats up this is a good site i've just joined to, do you have any ASE certifications? Are you fresh out of school? It's nice to have some people who want to get into the repair business. Most of the shops aound here all have older guys working my Nissan shop has 5 techs and i'm the youngest at 22 the freaking guy who does our oil changes is 25 lol. I have 4 ase's (Brakes, Suspension, Engine, and drivetrain) pain in the ass those were to get.

    It's bad tho i will bet you money that you will never buy a Subaru car. I have been working for nissan for over a year now and i owned a maxima and 300z and a 280 and let me tell you i will never ever buy a car from nissan. You work on them for 8 hours straight the last thing you want to do is drive home in one cause you know to much about them. It's depresing lol one reason why i never went to work for subaru cause i always wanted one.

    Talking

    ASE's ?

    They are probably called something different up here. I spent two years at BCIT in automotive mechanics and automitve elctronics for the second term.

    The only car I would want right now is a Subaru. After 7 motnhs as a full time tech. I've seen quite a bit and it's all been good. They are quite sophisticated cars but at the same time are very simple and easy to work on. Up here we get alot of snow and it gets down to -40c ussually for a couple weeks in the winter. These cars are sweet in the snow and can definitely hold their own in the cold (you still need a block heater). I've had my eye on a couple 2.5 rs's but we will have to see when the pocketbook allows me to purchase one.

    Anyways thanks for the welcome I'll see youall around
