What to Know About 2010 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 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. 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 2010 Subaru Legacy!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Subaru themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Legacy running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2010 Subaru Legacy problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Subaru Legacy Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2010 Subaru Legacy and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Legacy's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2010 Subaru Legacy. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Legacy may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Subaru Legacy 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, 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 help your 2010 Subaru Legacy's engine run smoother. See Subaru's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2010 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2010 Subaru Legacy.

Maintaining your Subaru Legacy steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components 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. 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 might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Subaru Legacy cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Subaru Legacy radiator in need of replacement? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2010 Subaru Legacy maintenance.

2010 Subaru Legacy Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2010 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? You know your Subaru Legacy better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Subaru Legacy? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Subaru Legacy engines.
  • 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 Legacy, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
