What is the maintenance schedule for the 2017 Subaru BRZ?

Here’s Why 2017 Subaru BRZ Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Subaru BRZ to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your BRZ 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. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your BRZ, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2017 Subaru BRZ!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Subaru, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your BRZ perform better, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2017 Subaru BRZ problems.

Overview of Essential Subaru BRZ Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2017 Subaru BRZ and our technicians will jump right in with 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your BRZ. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2017 Subaru BRZ? 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 BRZ may need a replacement battery sooner. 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. 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 BRZ could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2017 Subaru BRZ running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2017 BRZ. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2017 Subaru BRZ.

Maintaining your Subaru BRZ steering and suspension 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, perform Subaru BRZ suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Subaru BRZ's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Subaru BRZ maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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 your Subaru BRZ radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2017 Subaru BRZ maintenance.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2017 Subaru BRZ. Get answers to common Subaru BRZ maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting 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 use high mileage oil in my Subaru BRZ? 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 BRZ engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Subaru? 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 BRZ, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
