What is Preventative Maintenance & Why is it Important?

Answers to your service questions

'Preventative Maintenance' is a phrase that's thrown around a lot, and it refers to things like oil changes, brake jobs, and even tire replacements. It's important because the rigors of the roads and trails will take their toll, even on a Subaru. There are a wide range of services that fall under the preventative maintenance category, but they all have one thing in common. They're services that are necessary to prevent damage. Automotive fluids will wear out and need to be replaced before they stop doing their important job. Brake pads are designed to wear down over time, and they'll need to be replaced to prevent further damage to other components like the brake rotors or calipers.

What Else Should I Know About Preventative Maintenance?

While the regular engine oil change is perhaps the most widely understood preventative maintenance service, it's important to remember the rest of the vehicle beyond the engine. Making sure your wheels are properly aligned prevents ruining good tires and other possibly dangerous situations that can come from misaligned wheels. All the fluids in your Subaru, including in the differentials, transmission, coolant system and more will need to be replaced to prevent failure once they become too old and worn out.
