Here’s Why 2009 Subaru Legacy Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Subaru Legacy to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Legacy could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Legacy, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2009 Subaru Legacy!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of 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 help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2009 Subaru Legacy problems later.

Overview of Essential Subaru Legacy Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2009 Subaru Legacy 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 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 2009 Subaru Legacy. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 Legacy 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 Legacy) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Subaru Legacy 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 2009 Subaru Legacy engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2009 Legacy. 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 2009 Subaru Legacy? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Subaru Legacy can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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, provide Subaru Legacy steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Subaru Legacy's steering and suspension system.

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. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Subaru Legacy’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Subaru Legacy? You know your Subaru Legacy better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.

  • When should I switch my Subaru Legacy to 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!
