Your Guide to 2006 Subaru Legacy Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Subaru Legacy, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Legacy 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 Legacy maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2006 Subaru Legacy!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Subaru themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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 Legacy perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2006 Subaru Legacy problems.

Overview of Essential Subaru Legacy Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2006 Subaru Legacy to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Legacy. 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 2006 Subaru Legacy. 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Subaru Legacy battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Legacy) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Subaru Legacy won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2006 Subaru Legacy engine. See Subaru's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2006 Legacy 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. 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 2006 Subaru Legacy.

Maintaining your Subaru Legacy steering and suspension 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! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Subaru Legacy steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Subaru Legacy's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Subaru Legacy services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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 Legacy engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Subaru Legacy radiator? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2006 Subaru Legacy maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

2006 Subaru Legacy Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2006 Subaru Legacy. Get answers to common Subaru Legacy maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Subaru Legacy? 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 does my Subaru Legacy need high mileage oil? If your Subaru Legacy 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? 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 Legacy to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
