When should I get an oil change in my Subaru?

Like many other Subaru drivers around St. Louis, you love your Subaru for its safe and reliable performance. Or for Subaru's amazingly long-lasting quality. While every Subaru is built for the long road ahead you will need to stop by the service center here at Dean Team Subaru for routine maintenance. One service that is vital to your Subaru's high-quality performance is regular oil and filter changes. But how often do you need to change your oil?

Clean motor oil is one of the easiest ways to keep your beloved Subaru running smoothly and one of the most important services your Subaru will need. Regular oil changes will keep road dirt and debris from getting in the engine and building up. When dirt builds up on the moving components of the engine friction is created that will cause the different parts to heat up which can lead the engine seizing, and that is a very costly repair. Changing your oil will also boost your fuel economy because your engine won't have to work as hard to deliver spirited performance.

So how often should you change your Subaru's oil? The old rule of thumb used to be every 3,000-miles. With more efficient engines and better synthetic oils Subaru recommends that Belleville, IL drivers have their oil changed roughly every 6-8,000 miles depending on the type of oil your Subaru needs and your driving habits. Our service advisors will be able to tell you what grade motor oil your Subaru needs and when your last oil change was. They can also help you schedule your next oil change. Or you can make an appointment online with our easy to use scheduling tool.
