Subaru scheduled maintenance and auto repairyou can depend on. We never let a car leave our shop unless we are satisfied it is repaired right.
Subaru is known for its use of the boxer engine layout in most of its vehicles above 1500 cc. Since 1972, it is well known for its all-wheel-drive drive-train layout. We've been familiar with Subaru since those days!
These are familiar names in the Subaru brand Impreza, Outback Sport/Gravel Express/RV, Subaru Tribeca SUV, Outback and more.
Subaru recommends a minimum schedule of inspection and maintenance at 7,500 miles or 7.5 months (whichever comes first) and recommends more frequent check on the fluid levels (engine oil, coolant, etc.). Refer to your manual for more specifics.
Your Subaru vehicle (except H6 and turbocharged models) requires an initial engine oil and filter change at 7,500 miles or 7.5 months, whichever occurs first.

Do I need to replace all four tires at once on my Subaru?
In cars with all-wheel-drive systems, like Subarus, the differential and the computer work together to send the right amount of torque to each wheel (to minimize slippage and maximize control). If one tire is brand new and three are worn, the computer's reading will be incorrect—the result is the differential will work too hard. Drive like this for a period of time and you'll burn out the drive-train. If your set of 4 tires is new (couple thousand miles old) then you might be all right. To be safe, give us a call.
