Maintenance for Your 2021 Subaru WRX

How often should I service my 2021 Subaru WRX?

Here’s Why 2021 Subaru WRX Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Subaru WRX to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper 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. There's no need to guess when it's time to get WRX maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2021 Subaru WRX!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Subaru themselves. 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 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, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2021 Subaru WRX problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Subaru WRX Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2021 Subaru WRX for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 2021 Subaru WRX? 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Subaru WRX 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your WRX stranded. Your Subaru WRX won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2021 Subaru WRX engine. To learn how often Subaru recommends you have the oil changed in your 2021 WRX, check out the information table at the beginning 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2021 Subaru WRX.

Routine upkeep for your Subaru WRX suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, 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.

If you fall behind on routine Subaru WRX maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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 WRX engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Subaru WRX? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2021 Subaru WRX maintenance.
