Your Guide to 2016 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. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Outback maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2016 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. 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 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, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2016 Subaru Outback problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Subaru Outback Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Subaru Outback for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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 2016 Subaru Outback be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Subaru Outback battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2016 Subaru Outback's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2016 Outback. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2016 Subaru Outback? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Subaru Outback suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Subaru Outback's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Subaru Outback services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2016 Subaru Outback maintenance and repairs.

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 2016 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 does my Subaru Outback need 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Subaru? 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.
