When purchasing a new vehicle, it's very important that you adhere to a maintenance schedule to preserve the life and performance of the vehicle. The Subaru Crosstrek is a compact SUV built for towing and carrying large loads. Drivers may even do a bit of off-roading with the vehicle. This means that the Crosstrek will be in need of some TLC to keep it at its best.

We've created a Subaru Crosstrek maintenance schedule to keep you aware of appointments and services that need to be performed on a routine basis. If you're in the Farmingdale or Manalapan areas, come down to Freehold Subaru to get your Crosstrek serviced by our expert mechanics.  

Maintenance Check: Three Months or 3,000 Miles

Normally, buyers get their SUV serviced after six months or 6,000 miles of usage. However, drivers that live in areas with rockier terrains or colder climates, such as upstate New York, may need to get their Subaru Crosstrek serviced more often. Inclement weather causes extra wear and tear to the vehicle that can break down the SUV over time. At this interval, it's best you have a light checkup and an oil change.

Subaru Crosstreks have 2.0L 4-cylinder engines available in normal and hybrid formats. These engines use special synthetic oils that a trained mechanic would be familiar with. These services can also be done by a mechanic at the three-month interval. If you do a great deal of driving on muddy or sandy terrain, then the vehicle's tires will need to be rotated to keep them running smoothly.

Maintenance Check: Six Months or 6,000 Miles

This is typically when routine servicing occurs. After six months, the vehicle has been driven extensively and will need a tune-up. You can schedule an appointment with our staff to have your first tune-up. That process includes:

  • Performing routing rotation and balancing of tires
  • Adding fuel conditioner
  • Refilling the oil drain plug gasket
  • Checking tire pressure levels
  • Inspecting the hydraulic fluid
  • Checking the chassis, door hinges, belts, and hoses; also, applying proper lubrication to the chassis or door hinges if need be
  • Checking the fluid levels in the windshield wipers

Maintenance Check: 12 Months or 12,000 Miles

This maintenance check cannot be missed. This is the yearly maintenance appointment that must be made by Crosstrek owners. Here's a list of services that are typically performed during this interval:

  • Inspecting coolant fluid levels and adjusting them accordingly
  • Inspecting the fluid in the power steering system, replacing if need be
  • Checking suspension and steering
  • Inspecting the vehicle's exterior lights
  • Checking tires for signs of any damage

Maintenance Check: 18 Months or 18,000+ Miles

Here's a list of services that are typically performed during the 18 months or 18,000+ mile interval:

  • Inspecting brakes
  • Replacing oil filter
  • Checking service battery terminals
  • Checking vehicle alignment
  • Checking tire pressure
  • Inspecting engine air filter
  • Cleaning the fuel injection components
