Your Guide to 2019 Subaru Forester Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Subaru Forester to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Forester. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Forester, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2019 Subaru Forester maintenance schedule!

Subaru knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Forester running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2019 Subaru Forester problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Subaru Forester Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2019 Subaru Forester for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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 2019 Subaru Forester be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Subaru Forester battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Forester) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Subaru Forester 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 help your 2019 Subaru Forester's engine run smoother. To learn how often Subaru recommends you have the oil changed in your 2019 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2019 Subaru Forester.

Maintaining your Subaru Forester steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! 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 Forester 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 Forester's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Subaru Forester 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. 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 Forester’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Subaru Forester radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2019 Subaru Forester maintenance.

2019 Subaru Forester Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2019 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? You know your Subaru Forester better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Subaru? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Subaru Forester 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.
