Your Guide to 2013 Subaru Tribeca Scheduled Maintenance

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, your Tribeca has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Tribeca maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2013 Subaru Tribeca!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Tribeca running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2013 Subaru Tribeca problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Subaru Tribeca

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2013 Subaru Tribeca and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Tribeca. 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.

Could your 2013 Subaru Tribeca 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Tribeca may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 Tribeca 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 Tribeca) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Subaru Tribeca won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2013 Subaru Tribeca engine. See Subaru's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2013 Tribeca in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 2013 Subaru Tribeca.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Subaru Tribeca can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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 Tribeca steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Subaru Tribeca's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Subaru Tribeca 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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Subaru Tribeca cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Subaru Tribeca radiator? 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 2013 Subaru Tribeca 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.

Questions About 2013 Subaru Tribeca Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2013 Subaru Tribeca. Get answers to common Subaru Tribeca maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Subaru Tribeca? 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 switch my Subaru Tribeca to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Subaru Tribeca engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Subaru? 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.
