What to Know About 2011 Subaru Outback Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Subaru Outback, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. 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. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Outback, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2011 Subaru Outback!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Subaru themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Outback's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2011 Subaru Outback problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Subaru Outback Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2011 Subaru Outback and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Outback's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2011 Subaru Outback? 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 Outback battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Outback) stuck in the middle of nowhere. 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 prevent premature wear on your 2011 Subaru Outback engine. See Subaru's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2011 Outback in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2011 Subaru Outback.

Routine upkeep for your Subaru Outback suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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, 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Subaru Outback's steering system with 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. Is your Subaru Outback radiator in need of replacement? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it.

  • 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 use high mileage oil in my Subaru Outback? 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? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Subaru Outback to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
