Here’s Why 2016 Subaru WRX Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Subaru WRX, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your WRX. 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 WRX maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2016 Subaru WRX!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Subaru themselves. 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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your WRX running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2016 Subaru WRX problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Subaru WRX Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2016 Subaru WRX and our technicians will jump right in with 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 WRX’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2016 Subaru WRX? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your WRX may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Subaru WRX 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 WRX 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2016 Subaru WRX running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2016 WRX. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 2016 Subaru WRX.

Maintaining your Subaru WRX steering and suspension 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, provide Subaru WRX 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 WRX's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Subaru WRX 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 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Subaru WRX radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2016 Subaru WRX maintenance.

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