Your Guide to 2016 Subaru BRZ Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Subaru BRZ, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your BRZ. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your BRZ, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2016 Subaru BRZ maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Subaru themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your BRZ's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2016 Subaru BRZ problems.

Overview of Essential Subaru BRZ Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Subaru BRZ for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your BRZ's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2016 Subaru BRZ be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Subaru BRZ battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your BRZ stranded. Your Subaru BRZ won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2016 Subaru BRZ engine. To learn how often Subaru recommends you have the oil changed in your 2016 BRZ, 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2016 Subaru BRZ? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Subaru BRZ can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Subaru BRZ 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 BRZ's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Subaru BRZ services, 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!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Subaru BRZ engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Subaru BRZ? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2016 Subaru BRZ maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

Questions About 2016 Subaru BRZ Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2016 Subaru BRZ. Get answers to common Subaru BRZ maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Subaru BRZ? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Subaru BRZ to high mileage oil? If your Subaru BRZ has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Subaru? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Subaru BRZ to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
