Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1989 Subaru GL-10

What is the maintenance schedule for the 1989 Subaru GL-10?

Here’s Why 1989 Subaru GL-10 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Subaru GL-10, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your GL-10 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your GL-10, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1989 Subaru GL-10!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Subaru, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your GL-10 perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1989 Subaru GL-10 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Subaru GL-10 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Subaru GL-10 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your GL-10’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1989 Subaru GL-10 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 GL-10 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your GL-10 stranded. Your Subaru GL-10 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1989 Subaru GL-10 engine. To learn how often Subaru recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 GL-10, 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1989 Subaru GL-10.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Subaru GL-10 can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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 Subaru GL-10 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Subaru GL-10's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Subaru GL-10 services, 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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Subaru GL-10 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Subaru GL-10 radiator? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1989 Subaru GL-10 maintenance.

1989 Subaru GL-10 Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1989 Subaru GL-10. Get answers to common Subaru GL-10 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Subaru GL-10 alignment checked? You know your Subaru GL-10 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 GL-10 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 GL-10 engines.
  •  Why are my Subaru dashboard lights on? 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 GL-10, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
