Your Guide to 2012 Subaru Impreza Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Subaru Impreza to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Impreza has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? 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 2012 Subaru Impreza!

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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Impreza perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2012 Subaru Impreza problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Subaru Impreza Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2012 Subaru Impreza to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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 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.

Could your 2012 Subaru Impreza be ready for a new battery? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Impreza may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Subaru Impreza battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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, 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.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2012 Subaru Impreza running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2012 Impreza. 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2012 Subaru Impreza.

Routine upkeep for your Subaru Impreza suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Subaru Impreza 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 Impreza's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Subaru Impreza maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Subaru Impreza engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Subaru Impreza radiator? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2012 Subaru Impreza maintenance.
