Here’s Why 2006 Subaru Forester Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Subaru Forester to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Forester. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Forester maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2006 Subaru Forester!

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 Forester perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2006 Subaru Forester problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Subaru Forester Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2006 Subaru Forester 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Forester’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2006 Subaru Forester be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Forester may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Subaru Forester battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Forester could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

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 2006 Subaru Forester running newer, longer. To learn how often Subaru recommends you have the oil changed in your 2006 Forester, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2006 Subaru Forester.

Maintaining your Subaru Forester 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. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Subaru Forester steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Subaru Forester's steering and suspension system.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2006 Subaru Forester. Get answers to common Subaru Forester maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Subaru Forester? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2006 Forester is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Subaru Forester to high mileage oil? 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 Forester engines.
  • Can Subaru dashboard warning lights wait? 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 Forester, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
