Your Guide to 2011 Subaru Legacy Scheduled Maintenance

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. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Legacy maintenance. Just follow your 2011 Subaru Legacy maintenance schedule!

Subaru knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. 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 prevent common 2011 Subaru Legacy problems.

Overview of Essential Subaru Legacy Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2011 Subaru Legacy and our technicians will jump right in 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. 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.

Could your 2011 Subaru Legacy 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). 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 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.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2011 Subaru Legacy running newer, longer. To learn how often Subaru recommends you have the oil changed in your 2011 Legacy, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2011 Subaru Legacy.

Routine upkeep for your Subaru Legacy 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, 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. Components within your Subaru Legacy's steering system require 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. 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.
