Take care of your Subaru Outback and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Outback. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Outback maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2014 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Outback perform better, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2014 Subaru Outback problems.

Overview of Essential Subaru Outback Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2014 Subaru Outback to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Outback. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2014 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Outback may need a replacement battery sooner. 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. 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2014 Subaru Outback running newer, longer. To learn how often Subaru recommends you have the oil changed in your 2014 Outback, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2014 Subaru Outback.

Routine upkeep for your Subaru Outback suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, 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 skip recommended Subaru Outback services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Subaru Outback’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Subaru Outback radiator in need of replacement? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2014 Subaru Outback maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2014 Subaru Outback. Get answers to common Subaru Outback maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • 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 switch my Subaru Outback to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Subaru Outback? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can Subaru dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Subaru Outback 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.
