What is the maintenance schedule for the 1985 Subaru GL-10?

Here’s Why 1985 Subaru GL-10 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Subaru GL-10 and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your GL-10 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get GL-10 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1985 Subaru GL-10!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your GL-10's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1985 Subaru GL-10 problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Subaru GL-10 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1985 Subaru GL-10 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your GL-10. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1985 Subaru GL-10. 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Subaru GL-10 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 GL-10 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 1985 Subaru GL-10 running newer, longer. See Subaru's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1985 GL-10 in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1985 Subaru GL-10? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Subaru GL-10 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Subaru GL-10 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Subaru GL-10's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Subaru GL-10 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Subaru GL-10? You know your Subaru GL-10 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.
