Here’s Why 1999 Subaru Impreza Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Subaru Impreza and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Impreza could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Impreza, 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 1999 Subaru Impreza!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Subaru themselves. 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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Impreza perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1999 Subaru Impreza problems.

Overview of Essential Subaru Impreza Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1999 Subaru Impreza 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Impreza'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 1999 Subaru Impreza. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Subaru Impreza battery. 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 Impreza) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Subaru Impreza 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 help your 1999 Subaru Impreza's engine run smoother. See Subaru's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1999 Impreza 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1999 Subaru Impreza.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Subaru Impreza can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Subaru Impreza steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Subaru Impreza's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Subaru Impreza 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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Subaru Impreza cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Subaru Impreza radiator? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1999 Subaru Impreza maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1999 Subaru Impreza. Get answers to common Subaru Impreza maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Subaru Impreza? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1999 Impreza is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Subaru Impreza? 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 Impreza engines.
  • Can Subaru dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Subaru Impreza to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
