What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek?

Here’s Why 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Subaru XV Crosstrek to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your XV Crosstrek 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 XV Crosstrek maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like 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 XV Crosstrek's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek problems.

Overview of Essential Subaru XV Crosstrek Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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 XV Crosstrek'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 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your XV Crosstrek may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Subaru XV Crosstrek battery. 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 XV Crosstrek won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2013 XV Crosstrek. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek.

Routine upkeep for your Subaru XV Crosstrek suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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, perform Subaru XV Crosstrek 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 XV Crosstrek's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Subaru XV Crosstrek 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. 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 XV Crosstrek engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Subaru XV Crosstrek? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it.
