Subaru Forester Maintenance Schedule

6,000 Miles or 6 Months

Your very first maintenance visit takes place once you've gone 6,000 miles in your Subaru or it's been 6 months since your purchase. During this service set, a professional technician will:

  • Replace the engine oil and filter-protecting and lubricating the engine for optimal performance.
  • Inspect and rotate your Subaru's tires-by trading out the positions of each tire, this service helps ensure even tread wear, so you can get the most out of your tire set.

The above services are some of the most important tasks you can do for your vehicle. And they repeat the most often-for every maintenance interval, your Subaru service tech will perform an oil change and tire rotation.

12,000 Miles or 12 Months

One year of driving your Subaru Impreza, Crosstrek, or Forester calls for a thorough inspection of its main systems to make sure everything is in tip-top shape. It's time to…

  • Replace the A/C filter
  • Inspect the steering and suspension systems
  • Inspect clutch operation in manual models
  • Inspect all aspects of the braking system including disc brakes, axle boots, brake lines, and parking brake.
