What to Know About 2013 Subaru Outback Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Subaru Outback to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Outback could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Outback, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2013 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; 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Outback perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2013 Subaru Outback problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Subaru Outback

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2013 Subaru Outback for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with 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 Outback's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2013 Subaru Outback be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Outback may need a replacement battery sooner. 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. 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2013 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 2013 Outback. 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2013 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!).

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. Components within your Subaru Outback's steering system require regular maintenance.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Subaru Outback? 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? 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 Subaru dashboard warning lights wait? 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
