That said, to the OP, definitely go back to school. UTI isn't a bad idea. I have a few mechanic friends some still like it. Others are infuriated by finding out from owners "I have to put oil in my car?? What do you mean you have to take the engine apart??" One of my buddies spent the first year if his career pretty much just doing oil changes and brake jobs. Wasn't thrilled about that. And yes, he stopped doing them on his own car because it just reminded him of "the office".

But not everyone is like that and nobody is saying you will be. Maybe your love of cars will triumph over oil changes.

Best if luck to you. And if you're really interested in Subaru mechanics, maybe go to a dealer and ask where they got their start. Or maybe even if you could shadow a mechanic to learn. You never know. .
