Here’s Why 1996 Subaru SVX Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Subaru SVX to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, 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. Just follow your 1996 Subaru SVX 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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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 prevent common 1996 Subaru SVX problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Subaru SVX

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1996 Subaru SVX 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your SVX’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1996 Subaru SVX be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1996 Subaru SVX'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 1996 SVX. 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1996 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. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Subaru SVX steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. 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 skip recommended Subaru SVX services, 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 SVX engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Subaru SVX radiator? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it.
