Subaru Service Intervals

Subaru doesn't just make up arbitrary service intervals. After testing components and the whole engine extensively and knowing the limits of the recommended oil and parts, Subaru suggests oil changes, inspections, and other services in order to prevent costly damage in the future.

Why Do I Have to Stick to a Maintenance Schedule?

Engines are full of heat, friction, and fast-moving parts. They need oil circulating to lubricate movement and keep temperatures from getting too high. It's very important to change your oil at the recommended intervals so you can keep your engine in great working order.

Like regular oil changes, the bigger services for your car are vital. We need to take a look at your Subaru's systems and components at these particular mileages so we can keep an eye on regular wear and tear and replace anything that needs replacement. Ignoring a timing belt service, for example, could leave you with a car that won't start and a very expensive bill to get it running again.

Your Subaru should last for ages with proper care and maintenance to keep everything running smoothly. Whether you're passing it on to your kids or you want to get a decent price when you sell, adhering to Subaru's factory scheduled maintenance plan is the best way to keep the car in excellent condition and prevent high-cost jobs.
