Your Guide to 2021 Subaru Ascent Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Subaru Ascent and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Ascent has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Ascent maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2021 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. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. 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 prevent common 2021 Subaru Ascent problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Subaru Ascent Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2021 Subaru Ascent and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Ascent's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2021 Subaru Ascent be ready for a new battery? 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Subaru Ascent battery. 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Ascent stranded. Your Subaru Ascent won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2021 Subaru Ascent running newer, longer. To learn how often Subaru recommends you have the oil changed in your 2021 Ascent, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2021 Subaru Ascent? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Subaru Ascent suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Subaru Ascent steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Subaru Ascent's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Subaru Ascent maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Subaru Ascent’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Subaru Ascent radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it.

Questions About 2021 Subaru Ascent Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2021 Subaru Ascent. Get answers to common Subaru Ascent maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Subaru Ascent alignment checked? You know your Subaru Ascent better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Subaru Ascent? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Subaru Ascent engines.
  • Can Subaru dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Subaru Ascent, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
