Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Subaru recommends having your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Crosstrek may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Subaru recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Subaru Crosstrek. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek

  • What can low oil do to my Subaru Crosstrek engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Subaru Crosstrek engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Subaru oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Subaru Crosstrek exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
