How Do I Know When My Vehicle Needs Service?

Answers to your service questions

There are many signs your vehicle might give when it's time for service, and most of them can be summed up this way: if something doesn't look, feel, sound, or smell right, your vehicle needs to be brought in for inspection. Of course, there's far more to it than that; however, trusting your instinct and being overly cautious is a good way to avoid the expensive repairs that an ignored problem can cause. At Carlsen Subaru, our specialists are glad to help you with any Subaru maintenance you might need. Take a look below to see some of the most common ways to know when your vehicle needs service, or stop by if something else is bothering you.

Common Indicators That Your Subaru Needs Service: Engine Lights

Subaru vehicles are good at "talking" to their drivers. There are lots of lights and indicators on the dash of your vehicle, and they all mean different things. Many of them are simple and can be easily fixed by taking actions like closing all doors tightly, making sure everyone is buckled in, or refilling your windshield wiper fluid. However, other lights mean that you need to bring your Subaru in as soon as possible; these indicate that there might be a problem with crucial systems like the engine, the airbags, and more.

Common Indicators That Your Subaru Needs Service: Sounds, Smells, and More

If you've driven your Subaru for a while, you probably have a good idea of how it functions. Over time, things might start to get different. If you notice anything out of the ordinary--from a less responsive brake to an unusually loud engine to a vehicle that starts slower than usual--it's a good idea to bring it in for service.
