Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1993 Subaru SVX

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1993 Subaru SVX?

Here’s Why 1993 Subaru SVX Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Subaru SVX to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your SVX could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get SVX maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1993 Subaru SVX!

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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your SVX perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1993 Subaru SVX problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Subaru SVX

Bring your 1993 Subaru SVX to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your SVX. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1993 Subaru SVX? In general, car batteries only last 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. 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 SVX 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 SVX could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

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 1993 Subaru SVX engine. See Subaru's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1993 SVX 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1993 Subaru SVX.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Subaru SVX can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Subaru SVX 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 SVX's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Subaru SVX maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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 SVX engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Subaru SVX radiator? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1993 Subaru SVX maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

1993 Subaru SVX Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1993 Subaru SVX. Get answers to common Subaru SVX maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Subaru SVX? 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 use high mileage oil in my Subaru SVX? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Subaru SVX? 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? 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 SVX, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
