Subaru Maintenance Intervals



Maintaining your vehicle is an important part of getting the most out of your Subaru investment. Smart Service can provide all of the scheduled maintenance on your vehicle while still fulfilling the factory warranty requirements.

The chart below is a service and maintenance schedule based upon Subaru factory requirements. Each number indicates the mileage when a vehicle is due for a scheduled maintenance. The descriptions below are very simplified versions so please call us if you’d like get more details about how much more is actually done during the particular service. If you're comparison shopping for prices, beware. Repair shops will commonly quote too good to be true pricing for a very minimalistic service then upsell more once you're in the door. Request a detailed list of everything that is included in the service so you can really know what you are getting for your money.
