What to Know About 2017 Subaru Outback Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Subaru Outback to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Outback. 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2017 Subaru Outback!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Subaru, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. 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 2017 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 2017 Subaru Outback and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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 2017 Subaru Outback be ready for a new battery? 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). 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. 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 be going anywhere without a strong battery.

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 2017 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 2017 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2017 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!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Subaru Outback's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Subaru Outback maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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 can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2017 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.

2017 Subaru Outback Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2017 Subaru Outback. Get answers to common Subaru Outback maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting 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? 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? 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.
