Subaru 30,000 (30k) mile service covers an important list of vehicle maintenance items, and at a relatively affordable cost. If you do not already have a favored Subaru specialty repair shop, always research your potential shop in order to have your vehicle best taken care of! Read on for the answers to commonly asked questions about 30k mile service.
The 30k mile service for your Subaru can range from $300 – $400, plus tax. This service package is the first, bigger service, next to a routine oil change.
The Subaru standard maintenance schedule includes a list of things that should be changed, inspected, and evaluated at 30,000 miles (or 30 months, whichever comes first).
30k mile service includes:
Subaru recommends specific services at given mileage intervals, (30,000 miles, 60,000 miles, 90,000 miles, and 105,000 miles). The 30k mile service is the first large service your vehicle will receive from new. It’s very important to perform these manufacturer recommended services, as Subaru knows what’s best in order to maintain the vehicle as it was designed.
Aside from the mandatory oil change, some of these service items may not seem to be necessary, but maintaining your vehicle will save you time and money in the long run. Although the cabin and engine air filters may not seem like a big deal, a restricted engine air filter due to mileage, can most certainly hurt engine performance.
The same can be said about a cabin air filter. The ability of the cabin air filter to improve outside air quality, can also be affected.
A routine brake system fluid flush is important to ensure clean fluid and proper function of the hydraulic brake system.
The common and most frequent service for your Subaru is an oil change. At SL Autoworks we recommend the oil change interval to be anywhere from 3,000-5,000 miles, depending on the model and engine in your Subaru. Remember, an early oil change is always better than an overdue oil change!
Don’t Wait! Save money by maintaining your vehicle.
The 30k mile service was originally only offered by Subaru dealerships. However, more and more Subaru independent repair facilities are now offering this same service as your dealership, but for a reasonably less cost.
Save money, go to a Subaru specialist instead of the dealer.
