Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Crosstrek, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek!

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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Crosstrek perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2016 Subaru Crosstrek problems.

Overview of Essential Subaru Crosstrek Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Crosstrek’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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 Crosstrek battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Crosstrek stranded. Your Subaru Crosstrek won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek running newer, longer. To learn how often Subaru recommends you have the oil changed in your 2016 Crosstrek, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 Crosstrek? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Subaru Crosstrek steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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 Crosstrek 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 Crosstrek's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Subaru Crosstrek 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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Subaru Crosstrek cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Subaru Crosstrek radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Subaru Crosstrek? You know your Subaru Crosstrek better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.

  • When should I switch my Subaru Crosstrek to high mileage oil? If your Subaru Crosstrek 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!
