We here at White River Subaru are following the CDC sanitation guidelines. In addition, we are using Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), including masks, gloves, and interior car coverings on the floor, seats, and the steering wheel and we continue to practice social distancing.

What Are The Benefits of Frequent Service?

The biggest benefit of getting frequent service is the safety of you and your passengers. When you bring your vehicle in for your service appointment, our expert technicians will take a look at the other components of your vehicle. The next time you bring your Subaru in for an oil change, we will inspect your tires too.

How Do I Know When It's Time to Service My Vehicle?

At White River Subaru, we suggest scheduling a full-service appointment at least one time a year. Frequency in service depends on how much you drive and how well your current vehicle is maintained. If you happen to notice anything out of the ordinary with your vehicle's performance, be sure to visit our service department near Lebanon as soon as you can.

How Often Should I Get an Oil Change?

Oil maintenance is one of the most popular services here at White River Subaru. It's best to receive an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, but some of our newer Subaru models can go 7,000 miles. If you know you are going to be doing more driving than usual, then you may need an oil change sooner.

How Often Should I Check My Fluid Levels?

Vehicle fluids are important and should never be ignored. Aside from oil, there are other fluids your vehicle needs to run. These fluids include coolant, power steering fluid, brake fluid, transmission fluid, and windshield washer fluid. Our service team suggests checking them every 5,000 miles, but our technicians can check them for you when you stop by for routine maintenance.

How Often Should I Change My Air Filter?

Your air filter can be changed every 20,000 miles or once a year- whichever comes first. If you drive a Subaru model that comes equipped with a turbocharged engine under the hood, like a Subaru WRX, then you may need a replacement sooner.

How Often Do I Need to Get My Brakes Checked?

Brakes are important because they make your vehicle stop. Not only that, but brakes can help you avoid collisions. Our Subaru service experts recommend getting your brakes checked at least once every 10,000 miles. If you hear increased noise like squealing, it would be a good idea to bring your car down to our Subaru service center as soon as possible.

When Should I Replace My Brake Pads?

Again, we cannot stress how important your brakes are. Keep in mind that brake pads do wear out over time, especially because we depend on them a lot. Brakes can be replaced every 50,000 miles, but this depends on the brake material and your driving habits.

With factors such as your driving habits, how much you drive, and weather conditions, it is recommended to change your Subaru car battery every 3 to 4 years. When you see a warning light displayed on your dashboard or it's taking a long time to start your vehicle, come down to our service department.

When Do I Need to Get a Tire Rotation?

It's a good idea to receive a tire rotation every 7,500 miles or every six months. The best time to get a tire rotation is when you bring your Subaru Impreza or Ascent down to our service center for an oil change.

How Much Air Pressure Should I Put into My Tires?

The air pressure in your tires is measured in pounds per square inch (PSI). The PSI can range between 30 and 35 depending on which model you drive. Just to be sure, don't forget to check your vehicle owner's manual. You can also find the PSI displayed inside your Subaru car or SUV.

How Often Do Tires Need To Be Replaced?

Since tires are the only part of your Subaru car or SUV that touches the road, keeping them well-maintained is a must. Tires can last anywhere between 35,000 to 60,000 miles. Once again, these numbers depend on your driving style and how well your tires are maintained.

Where Can I Find Auto Service & Repair Near Me?
