Count on Belknap Subaru in Tilton, NH for Regular Oil Changes and Other Affordable Routine Maintenance

If you're the lucky owner of a Subaru crossover, sedan or hatchback - like the Outback, Legacy Impreza - you probably know you have one of the most reliable vehicles out there. In fact, 96 percent of Subaru models purchased in the last 10 years are still on the road today.

This kind of remarkable longevity is the result of the impressive quality of Subaru vehicles, but it also requires an owner commitment to making sure your Forester, WRX or other model is properly cared for with regularly scheduled maintenance performed by the skilled technicians at Belknap Subaru's Service Center. That includes oil changes every few thousand miles (check the owner's manual buried in the glove box of your particular model or use our online maintenance schedule resource), regular tire rotations and brake pad replacements.

Having your engine oil changed is arguably the single most important action you can take to preserve your Subaru's performance over the long term. Over time, your engine's motor oil breaks down and accumulates contaminants, which reduces viscosity and increases friction between engine components that move against each other.  Fresh engine oil keeps all your engine parts functioning smoothly, and greatly reduces the potential for more serious problems.

Here at Belknap Subaru, our Service Center team is here to help. We feature Subaru Express Service, which is a drop-in, while-you-wait, no-appointment-needed center for minor maintenance including oil changes, and we regularly offer discount coupons and service specials to help keep routine service as affordable as possible. You can even easily schedule your next service appointment online through our website.

Belkap Subaru is located at 35 Tilton Road in Tilton, NH, and we're very convenient to Concord, Manchester, Laconia and Plymouth. Stop in today to see our current lineup of new Subaru models and talk with one of our knowledgeable sales professionals, or give us a call at (603)729-1300 to speak with a service manager.

Ever wonder what’s under those yellow caps?

Your Subaru uses multiple fluids to help support its various systems and overall vehicle performance. Our factory trained technicians know all about them, and inspect these key fluids during the multi-point inspection. It’s important for you to keep an eye on them from time to time. It’s simple – just open your hood and look for the yellow caps. For detailed instructions, refer to your Owner’s Manual.

Engine Oil

When it’s time, an oil change is something you shouldn’t put off doing. That’s why our Service Center is conveniently open for you. Our technicians are factory trained and work on Subaru vehicles every day. Their training and experience ensures that the job will be done professionally – with Genuine Subaru Parts – in a timely fashion.

Subaru Engine Oil Type & Interval Chart

Between oil changes, Subaru recommends that you check the oil level on your dipstick at every other fuel stop. Depending on your driving style and other conditions, your engine may consume oil more frequently than the recommended oil change intervals. So check the level and top it off if it’s low. It’s good practice to check vehicle fluids to help ensure your Subaru performs safely. It’s easy and anyone can do it. View the videos above to see how you can check your vehicle’s fluid levels.
