Intervals and Recommended Services

This schedule is based on the recommendations found in the Subaru Warranty and Maintenance Handbook. Additional services may be recommended based on local climate, road conditions, vehicle usage (repeated short distance driving, towing, etc.) and our years of experience with local driving conditions.

Not all services are applicable to every model/model year and in some cases prices may vary by model or equipment. Prices are subject to change without notice. Your service adviser will explain and confirm pricing details at the time your Repair Order is written.

** Note: Some 2011 model year and newer vehicles require the use of synthetic motor oil due to the advancement in engine designs for improved fuel economy and endurance. We recommend Genuine Subaru Synthetic Motor Oil, which was developed specifically for the new engine design.
