In the northern hemisphere, the beautiful Pleiades constellation beams in the clear winter night sky. The star cluster is the inspiration for Subaru’s name and badge. Subaru is the Japanese name for the Pleiades. In Japanese, Subaru also means to govern, gather together, and unite.

Is the Subaru having trouble starting? Follow Subaru factory data test procedures and specifications―for instance, a starter magnet test―as shown in the excerpt below.

New to this update is the addition of Owner Manuals, EyeSight Driver Assistance Manuals, Navigation Manuals, and STARLINK Manuals. These manuals can be downloaded for quick reference. Having this data on a smartphone can make buying certain parts, like winter tires, easier. The “Subaru Owner’s Manual excerpt” below explains tire specifications.
