Subaru of New Zealand COVID-19 Update

As you will be aware, New Zealand as a nation is in Covid-19 Alert Level 4. The Government has advised that all non-essential businesses must close during this four week period, which means the Subaru of New Zealand head office along with all our Authorised Subaru Centres are closed until at least 23rd April 2020. 

During this period, all Subaru of New Zealand staff and Dealership staff are committed to isolation to ensure we do our part to help eradicate Covid-19 in New Zealand. Our Authorised Subaru Centres around the country will be closed and will be unable to undertake any sales or servicing at this time. If you are working as part of our essential services here in New Zealand and your Subaru requires emergency repairs to enable you to continue travelling to work during this period, please contact your local Authorised Subaru Centre that may be able to assist for an emergency repair. Please be aware, this is not available for Subaru customers who are not working in essential services following the Government's guidelines. 

If you require some general support, you can email us at or on the Contact Us page on our website. 

Please follow us on Facebook or Instagram to keep informed with any updates, and to follow some of our tips and Subaru Stories to help you while you're at home in isolation. 

To keep up to date with your local Subaru Authorised Dealership, please check their websites, and follow them on social media.

Given you won't be driving as regularly in your Subaru, remember to turn your vehicle over during this lockdown period to avoid the battery dying and reduce the need for any emergency assistance.

If you are unsure if your personal business is listed as essential or not, visit to find out.


On behalf of everyone at Team Subaru, we wish you and your family all the very best during this difficult time and we hope to see you all again in our dealerships and travelling around Subaru Country soon.
