What Are The Benefits of Frequent Service?

Getting regular service will help your vehicle's overall safety. When you bring your vehicle down for your service appointment, we will be sure to check all the other components of your vehicle. For example, when you come in for an oil change, we will also take a look at your tires. Plus, routine maintenance ensures your vehicle will perform at its best.

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

Service frequency varies, but tt's a good idea to schedule a full-service appointment at least once a year. How often you need to schedule service depends on how much you drive around New City, NY, how well your car is maintained, and more. If you do notice anything unusual with your vehicle, be sure to bring it down to our Subaru repair facility as soon as you can.

How Often Should I Get an Oil Change?

Oil maintenance is one of the most important service items. You can get an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000-miles, but newer vehicles can go 7,000-miles depending on the make and model. If you are driving more than usual, you may need an oil change sooner-as always, we can help!

How Often Should I Check My Fluid Levels?

Aside from motor oil, there are other fluids your vehicle needs, including coolant, power steering fluid, brake fluid, transmission fluid, and windshield washer fluid. These fluids should also be checked on a regular basis. We suggest checking them every 5,000-miles, but our technicians can check them for you when you visit our service center.

How Often Should I Change My Air Filter?

You can change your air filter about every 20,000-miles or once a year- whichever comes first. If you drive a vehicle that's equipped with a turbocharged engine, like a Subaru WRX, then we suggest changing it sooner.

How Often Do I Need to Get My Brakes Checked?

Our Subaru service professionals recommend getting your brakes checked at least every 10,000-miles. If you hear increased noise such as squeaking or squealing, you may want to bring your car down to our service department as soon as you can. For your safety, do not put off brake maintenance or brake repair.

When Should I Replace My Brake Pads?

Brake pads do wear out over time, especially because we depend on our brakes daily. Typically, brake pads should be replaced every 50,000-miles, but this depends on the brake material and your overall driving habits.

When Should I Replace My Car Battery?

When you factor in your driving habits, the number of miles you drive, and weather conditions, you should change your car battery every 3 to 4 years. If you see a warning light on your dash or it's taking a long time to start your vehicle, then it may be time to replace your car battery.

When Do I Need to Get a Tire Rotation?

We suggest getting a tire rotation at least every 7,500-miles or every six months - whichever comes first. The best time to get a tire rotation is when you bring your Subaru vehicle down to our service center for a routine 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). PSI can range between 30 and 35, depending on your manufacturer's recommendation. Be sure to check your vehicle owner's manual. You can also find the PSI printed inside your vehicle.

How Often Do Tires Need To Be Replaced?

Maintaining your tires is a critical part of the service process. Tires can last between 35,000 to 60,000-miles. Again, these numbers depend on your driving habits, tire rotations, and tire size. When you bring your vehicle in for an oil change, our technicians will be sure to check your tires and measure the tire tread depth.

At Bill Kolb Jr. Subaru, we believe the best option is to schedule a service appointment. You will be able to request the day and time that works out for you and your schedule.
