How Often Should I Change My Oil?

Changing your motor oil during the suggested mileage intervals is very important to keep your engine performing at the highest level. Suggested mileage intervals can change depending on the vehicle, the type of driving that you do and the climate which you live. We encourage you to check your owner's manual to see what your suggested mileage intervals for an oil change are and sticking to them as closely as possible. To play it safe, it's a good idea to get your oil changed any time after 5,000 miles driven.

Why Are Oil Changes Important?

Motor oil is often referred to as the lifeblood of your vehicle because of the way that it allows the engine to perform properly. Motor oil not only protects your engine from dirt and other debris coming off the road and in the air, it also cools and lubricates the many moving parts in the engine to allow it to reach its full potential. When you wait too long to change your oil, the oil filter can clog and cause dirty oil to move about your engine, which can cause issues. That's why it's important to always change your motor oil between the suggested mileage intervals.

How Often Should a Subaru Vehicle be Serviced?

There are a few Subaru maintenance and service schedules you should follow to keep your Subaru vehicle in the best condition possible. The first service interval is after 6,000 miles. That's when you should have a synthetic oil and filter change, as well as getting your tires rotated and balanced. This trend should continue every 6,000 miles or so. After 30,000 miles, you'll want to get your brake fluid and coolant replaced. You should also have your brake pads and rotors inspected and changed if need be. After 60,000 miles, you should have your transmission fluid, engine and cabin air filter and brake fluid replaced.

Is it Better to Go to the Dealership to Get a Subaru Vehicle Serviced?
