What to Know About 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Subaru XV Crosstrek, 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 XV Crosstrek. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your XV Crosstrek, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Subaru themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your XV Crosstrek running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Subaru XV Crosstrek

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your XV Crosstrek. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Subaru XV Crosstrek battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty XV Crosstrek) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Subaru XV Crosstrek won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek engine. To learn how often Subaru recommends you have the oil changed in your 2014 XV Crosstrek, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil.
