What to Know About 2005 Subaru Impreza Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Subaru Impreza to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Impreza could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Impreza maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2005 Subaru Impreza!

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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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 Impreza's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2005 Subaru Impreza problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Subaru Impreza Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2005 Subaru Impreza for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Impreza. 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 2005 Subaru Impreza. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Impreza may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2005 Subaru Impreza engine. See Subaru's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2005 Impreza 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. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2005 Subaru Impreza? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Subaru Impreza can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system 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. Is your Subaru Impreza radiator in need of replacement? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2005 Subaru Impreza maintenance.

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

2005 Subaru Impreza Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2005 Subaru Impreza. Get answers to common Subaru Impreza maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Subaru Impreza? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Subaru Impreza? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Subaru Impreza? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  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 Impreza, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
