Scheduled Service Intervals at Subaru Wangara

When to have your Subaru serviced?

Everyone's driving habits are different and therefore so are the service requirements for your vehicle. You should be servicing your vehicle based either on time or distance, whichever occurs first.

Time Vs. Distance

If you don't do a lot of kilometres you should have your Subaru serviced according to the recommended time-based service intervals. So even though you haven't travelled great distances, the engine has been working hard during those short, stop-start trips, such as city driving.

However, if you drive your Subaru more regularly and over longer distances you will reach the kilometre interval first. In this case you should service your vehicle based on the recommended distance travelled.

Why is regular servicing important?

Keeping to a service schedule is more than just changing the oil and the odd air filter.

Irregular servicing can also lead to reduced fuel efficiency and increased air pollution, potentially damaging the retained value of your vehicle.

A regular schedule also helps to preserve and maintain the performance, safety and retained value of your Subaru. During scheduled services, Subaru technicians perform inspections of your brake system, tyres, driveline and steering components, all vitally important for your safety.

Failing to regularly service your Subaru could endanger your vehicle warranty. Failure to properly maintain your Subaru may result in your vehicle developing faults, which will not be covered under the New Vehicle Warranty.
