When you buy a new car, you're committed to taking care of it. The paint is shiny and you want to keep it that way, so you take it to the car wash weekly and wax it at regular intervals. You're hyper-vigilant about keeping up with scheduled maintenance or service. But eventually, you may start to get more lax - that's why regular maintenance is so important! Routine maintenance is crucial to the long-term mechanical health of your Subaru. Subaru creates service & maintenance schedules for all its vehicles. Follow the Subaru Forester maintenance schedule for routine services like oil changes, tire rotations, and brake inspections, and you could avoid costlier repairs down the road!
