When Should I Get My Oil Changed


When should I get my oil changed and what type of oil is recommend for my Subaru? The recommended service intervals for your Subaru varies from model to model and from year to year. In addition there are various oil recommendations for the various models. Your Subaru dealer will always know what the proper oil for your vehicle is, but if you intended to change your own oil or use an independant shop, we've added this chart to help you determine when to service your vehicle and with what type of oil to use.

It is always recommended that a new, quality oil filter and drain plug gasket are used every time the oil is changed.
