Your Guide to 2012 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 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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. Just follow your 2012 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. 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Legacy's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2012 Subaru Legacy problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Subaru Legacy

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Subaru Legacy and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2012 Subaru Legacy? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Subaru Legacy won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2012 Subaru Legacy's engine run smoother. To learn how often Subaru recommends you have the oil changed in your 2012 Legacy, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2012 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. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components 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. 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 (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 Legacy engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Subaru Legacy radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2012 Subaru Legacy maintenance and repairs.

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

2012 Subaru Legacy Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2012 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? 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!
  •  Why are my Subaru dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Subaru Legacy in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
