What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2016 Subaru WRX STI?

Here’s Why 2016 Subaru WRX STI Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Subaru WRX STI, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your WRX STI has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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 WRX STI, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2016 Subaru WRX STI!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Subaru, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your WRX STI's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2016 Subaru WRX STI problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Subaru WRX STI Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Subaru WRX STI for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 WRX STI's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2016 Subaru WRX STI be ready for a new battery? 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Subaru WRX STI battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your WRX STI stranded. Your Subaru WRX STI 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 2016 Subaru WRX STI engine. To learn how often Subaru recommends you have the oil changed in your 2016 WRX STI, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 2016 Subaru WRX STI.

Routine upkeep for your Subaru WRX STI suspension and steering system 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Subaru WRX STI suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Subaru WRX STI's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Subaru WRX STI maintenance, 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. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Subaru WRX STI’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

2016 Subaru WRX STI Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2016 Subaru WRX STI. Get answers to common Subaru WRX STI maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Subaru WRX STI alignment checked? 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 does my Subaru WRX STI need 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 WRX STI engines.
  • Can Subaru dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Subaru WRX STI 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.
