Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2020 Subaru Ascent

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2020 Subaru Ascent?

Here’s Why 2020 Subaru Ascent Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Subaru Ascent to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Ascent could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Ascent, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2020 Subaru Ascent maintenance schedule!

Subaru knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Ascent's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2020 Subaru Ascent problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Subaru Ascent

Bring your 2020 Subaru Ascent to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Ascent’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2020 Subaru Ascent? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Ascent may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Subaru Ascent battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Subaru Ascent won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2020 Subaru Ascent's engine run smoother. See Subaru's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2020 Ascent in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2020 Subaru Ascent? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Subaru Ascent suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Subaru Ascent steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Subaru Ascent's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Subaru Ascent maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Subaru Ascent cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Subaru Ascent? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2020 Subaru Ascent maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.
