Maintenance for Your 2007 Subaru Outback

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2007 Subaru Outback?

Here’s Why 2007 Subaru Outback Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Subaru Outback and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Outback 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. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Outback maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2007 Subaru Outback 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Outback's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2007 Subaru Outback problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Subaru Outback Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2007 Subaru Outback to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Outback’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2007 Subaru Outback be ready for a new battery? 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Subaru Outback battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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. 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 Outback won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2007 Subaru Outback engine. See Subaru's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2007 Outback in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 2007 Subaru Outback.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Subaru Outback can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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 Outback 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Subaru Outback's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Subaru Outback maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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 Outback engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.

2007 Subaru Outback Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2007 Subaru Outback. Get answers to common Subaru Outback maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Subaru Outback alignment checked? You know your Subaru Outback 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 switch my Subaru Outback to high mileage oil? If your Subaru Outback 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!
  • 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 Outback, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
