Your Guide to 2009 Subaru Outback Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Subaru Outback, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Outback has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2009 Subaru Outback!

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 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 Outback running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2009 Subaru Outback problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Subaru Outback Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2009 Subaru Outback 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 2009 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Subaru Outback 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. 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

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 2009 Subaru Outback running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2009 Outback. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2009 Subaru Outback? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Subaru Outback suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Subaru Outback suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Subaru Outback's steering system require regular maintenance.

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. Need a new Subaru Outback radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2009 Subaru Outback maintenance.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Subaru Outback? 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 use high mileage oil in my Subaru Outback? 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 Outback 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 Outback, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
