About Us

At Stubaru our aim is to support our customers to ensure they have a reliable, enjoyable driving experience.

We believe that Subaru’s have become a huge part of New Zealander’s lives. To and from work, from mountain to surf, shopping to family holidays you’ll always see a Subaru. Popular for their versatility there is a Subaru suited to everyone.

Subaru’s are the kind of car that with regular servicing and maintenance will last a long time. We believe that regular servicing is a crucial part of owning a Subaru.Servicing alone is the single most effective way of saving money in the long run, therefore servicing is the major focus of our business at Stubaru.

Stuart & Joanna

The life and deeds of Possum Bourne touched so many people. He was – and still is – loved by kiwis everywhere. His legacy lives on, through the cars he owned, the races he won, the drivers he inspired and the people who supported him.

In the Selwyn District, Canterbury, one such person – and one such car – are quietly carrying on Possums ethos.

Meet Stu, owner of Stubaru, part time rally driver and part of the pit crew to Possum Bourne during his international career.

In the immaculate, purpose-built workshop in Prebbleton, Stu specialises in servicing and maintaining late model Subaru’s.

The pride Stu has in his trade is evident in the purist approach he brings to work every day. Only the best is good enough, as you’ll see when you visit Stubaru and see the specialised equipment and tools; allowing for specific tooling of parts – both genuine and high-quality replacements. The right knowledge, tools and workmanship means longer lasting, slower wearing and less tearing for every precious Subaru that enters the workshop.

With his own team behind him in the form of wife Joanna (who codrives the business and the rally car), and their young protégée, you can find the family out and about hitting the rally scene several times a year, carrying on the legacy that Possum began all those years ago.

The passion and sincerity you’ll find in Stu is exactly what you would expect from Possum Bournes’ mechanic, pit crew and close friend.
