Here at DFR Automotive (Subaru Specialist), we do what we can to make sure the job gets done right.

Owner / Director McLean (Maca) first started as an apprentice in a little family workshop in Forestville (on Sydney's Northern Beaches) working his way from the floor right up to the office. Helping to grow the business from a two-hoist workshop into a six hoist six bay giant. Working together with management, he helped start & maintain the garage as one of the most reputable Subaru Specialist workshops on the Northern Beaches, then in the later years aiding in the expansion for the shops potential by added a full tyre & alignment section. Working especially on Subaru Diagnostics & faults, he became a custom to what needed to be done to get to fix problem.

The name "DFR" has been around since 2005 (mainly doing after hours work for friends and family), but the time was right for Maca to go out and start his own shop in Hornsby at the beginning of 2015. Now DFR Automotive (Subaru Specialist) is in its 6th year of trading, growing its Subaru customer base, ever expanding its services & still going strong.​
