Does My Subaru Really Need Regular Oil Changes?

Absolutely. Engine oil has the crucial role of lubricating metals and absorbing heat from the engine day in and day out. This constant lubrication causes the oil to break down and become contaminated by metals and dust, making it gummy and reducing its effectiveness the longer it's left unchanged. By changing your oil every 5,000 miles, you can be sure that you engine stays properly lubricated and the engine components don't overheat, which saves you a large amount of money in the long run.

Does My Subaru Really Need Synthetic Oil?

Most new cars use synthetic oil, which is an artificial lubricant that lasts longer, takes longer to break down, and performs better. If you have a new Subaru, you'll need to use synthetic oil rather than conventional oil. Synthetic oil costs a little more in the short run but synthetic oil requires fewer changes and is more effective at protecting your engine, saving you money overall.

What Type of Oil Should I Put in My Subaru?

The type of oil your Subaru needs depends on the model. Because modern Subaru engineering is so advanced, the specific grade of oil you use can make a big difference. In general, Subaru vehicles use 0W-20 or 5W-30 oil but you'll want to consult your owner's manual or one of our Subaru certified technicians to be sure.
