Here’s Why 2009 Subaru Tribeca Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Subaru Tribeca and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Tribeca. 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 Tribeca 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 2009 Subaru Tribeca!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Tribeca perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2009 Subaru Tribeca problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Subaru Tribeca

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2009 Subaru Tribeca for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Tribeca's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2009 Subaru Tribeca. 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 Tribeca may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Subaru Tribeca battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Tribeca won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2009 Subaru Tribeca's engine run smoother. See Subaru's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2009 Tribeca 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 2009 Subaru Tribeca.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Subaru Tribeca 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! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Subaru Tribeca suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Subaru Tribeca's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Subaru Tribeca 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 Tribeca engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Subaru Tribeca? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2009 Subaru Tribeca maintenance and repairs.

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

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Subaru Tribeca? You know your Subaru Tribeca 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 switch my Subaru Tribeca to high mileage oil? If your Subaru Tribeca 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 Subaru dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Subaru Tribeca 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.
