What to Know About 2020 Subaru Crosstrek Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Subaru Crosstrek and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Crosstrek has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Crosstrek, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2020 Subaru Crosstrek!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Subaru themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Crosstrek perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2020 Subaru Crosstrek problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Subaru Crosstrek Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2020 Subaru Crosstrek to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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 Crosstrek's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2020 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Subaru Crosstrek battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 Crosstrek 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 2020 Subaru Crosstrek running newer, longer. See Subaru's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2020 Crosstrek in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2020 Subaru Crosstrek.

Routine upkeep for your Subaru Crosstrek suspension and steering 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. 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 Crosstrek 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 Crosstrek's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Subaru Crosstrek maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Subaru Crosstrek’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Subaru Crosstrek radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2020 Subaru Crosstrek 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.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Subaru Crosstrek? 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 Crosstrek? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Subaru Crosstrek? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my Subaru dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Subaru Crosstrek in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
