Take care of your Subaru WRX STI and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your WRX STI could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine WRX STI maintenance. Just follow your 2018 Subaru WRX STI 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. 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; 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. 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 maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Subaru WRX STI problems in the future.

We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 2018 Subaru WRX STI be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your WRX STI may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Subaru WRX STI battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty WRX STI) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Subaru WRX STI won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2018 Subaru WRX STI engine. See Subaru's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2018 WRX STI in the chart at the top 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 2018 Subaru WRX STI.

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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Subaru WRX STI cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Subaru WRX STI radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2018 Subaru WRX STI maintenance and repairs.
