How Often to Get 2018 Subaru Crosstrek Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Subaru Crosstrek’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2018 Crosstrek’s oil should be changed according to Subaru’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Crosstrek 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 car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Subaru if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Subaru Crosstrek?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Subaru Crosstrek. Subaru has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2018 Subaru Crosstrek vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Crosstrek’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Crosstrek by considering your driving preferences, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek

  • What can low oil do to my Subaru Crosstrek engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Crosstrek’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Subaru Crosstrek oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Subaru exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
