What Is Preventative Maintenance, and Why Is It Important?

Answers to your service questions

Preventative maintenance is a term that applies to all kinds of services for your vehicle, including oil changes, other fluid changes, air filter replacement, belt inspection and replacement, tire rotation, and multi-point inspections. These are referred to as preventative maintenance because they help prevent possible problems down the road. In order to keep your Subaru performing at its peak, it's important to keep it properly maintained.

What Else Should I Know About Preventative Maintenance?

Preventative maintenance may seem like a chore, but it saves you time and money. Oil that has been in your vehicle too long can damage the engine. An old air filter can lead to decreased performance. A snapped serpentine belt can put your safety in danger, and tires that haven't been rotated frequently will have to be replaced more often--and they can cause other problems. These are all serious problems that can be avoided with preventative maintenance.

If your Subaru is under warranty--and you want to keep it that way--you need to choose an authorized Subaru service center to perform this maintenance. Of course, there are other benefits to using such a service center, as well. Unlike the mechanics at chain joints and local shops, technicians at a Subaru service center have received their training and certification directly from Subaru.

It's also important to stick to a schedule. Your owner's manual will have a basic guide telling you when preventative maintenance should be performed. However, these are just guidelines, and there are many factors that can alter them. To get a full picture, it's best to talk to a certified Subaru service advisor.
