What to Know About 2013 Subaru Legacy Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Subaru Legacy to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Legacy. 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2013 Subaru Legacy!

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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2013 Subaru Legacy problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Subaru Legacy

Bring your 2013 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. 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 2013 Subaru Legacy be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Legacy stranded. Your Subaru Legacy could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2013 Subaru Legacy running newer, longer. To learn how often Subaru recommends you have the oil changed in your 2013 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2013 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. 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.

Without routine Subaru Legacy maintenance, 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.

Questions About 2013 Subaru Legacy Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2013 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 should I switch my Subaru Legacy to high mileage oil? 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 Subaru dashboard warning lights wait? 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.
