Your Guide to 1991 Subaru XT Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Subaru XT and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your XT 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. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine XT maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1991 Subaru XT!

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, 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 XT's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1991 Subaru XT problems.

Overview of Essential Subaru XT Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1991 Subaru XT 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 XT's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1991 Subaru XT? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your XT 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 XT battery. 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 XT stranded. Your Subaru XT could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1991 Subaru XT engine. See Subaru's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1991 XT 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 1991 Subaru XT.

Maintaining your Subaru XT steering and suspension system 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Subaru XT suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Subaru XT's steering system with regular maintenance.

  • When should I have Subaru XT alignment checked? You know your Subaru XT better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Subaru XT need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Subaru XT? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can Subaru dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Subaru XT, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
