Maintenance for Your 2008 Subaru Impreza

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2008 Subaru Impreza?

Here’s Why 2008 Subaru Impreza Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Subaru Impreza to last as long as possible. 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. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Impreza maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2008 Subaru Impreza maintenance schedule!

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 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, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2008 Subaru Impreza problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Subaru Impreza

Bring your 2008 Subaru Impreza to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2008 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. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Impreza stranded. Your Subaru Impreza could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2008 Subaru Impreza engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2008 Impreza. 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.

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.

  • What should I do after hitting 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? If your Subaru Impreza has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Subaru? 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
