Auto Service FAQs:

Do You Have Contact-Free Service?

We are currently offering contact-free service which allows you to drop off and pick up your vehicle at our service center with minimal direct contact. All our Subaru repair team wear masks, gloves, and have covers for the seats, steering wheel and floor mats so when we're working on the vehicle you know we've had minimal touch point the entire time and can return it to you.

Why Should I have Frequent Service?

Making sure your vehicle is getting the right maintenance at routine intervals is vital to its overall health. Having oil changes, filter replacements, wiper blade replacement, tire rotations, alignments, brake pad and rotor replacement and inspections and battery checks at the right time according to your owner's manual will go a long way toward helping you drive without any issues and for a longer period of time in your current ride.

When Do I Know I Need Service?

It all depends on what you need completed. If it's been a while or you have vehicle warning lights on or notice performance issues that's always a good reason to come by right away, but contact us or consult your owner's manual for the right time for individual services.

When Should I Get an Oil Change?

It's recommended you get an oil change every 3,000 to 6,000 miles depending on your driving habits. A conventional oil change is closer to 3,000 miles while synthetic is closer to 6,000 miles.

How Often Should I Check Fluid Levels?

It's always a good idea to top off fluids, and generally don't wait longer than 5,000 miles to get fluid top-offs like brake, steering, engine and transmission fluid along with others like wiper fluid.

When Should I Change My Cabin Air Filter?

If you change your cabin air filter once a year that's your best bet as it ensures you're getting in clean air for a comfortable interior with the best air quality possible.

When Should I Have My Brakes Checked?

It's important to check your brakes every 10,000 miles at least or if you hear any squeaking sounds when you press down on the brake. You should also pay attention to brake pads and rotors which should be replaced at least every 25,000 miles or up to 50,000 miles depending on your driving routine.

When Do I Need a Car Battery Replacement?

If your vehicle is struggling to start, especially on colder days or if you've needed a few jump starts, that's always the most obvious sign you need a new car battery. Generally speaking however, every three to four years is a good bet to get a replacement.

When Should I Get My Tires Rotated?

About every 6,000 miles a tire rotation is a good idea, or about twice a year, as this will help your tires last by reducing the tread wear so you can get the most out of them for many miles.

When Do My Tires Need to Be Replaced?

Generally, tires can last from 30,000 miles up to 60,000 miles as over time the tread will wear down and if you notice that the treads are as deep that's a sign you should look for a new set. Also, if you have a flat tire or a blowout, you obviously should get a replacement tire for that too.

At Redding Subaru it's always a good idea to have an appointment for service as that guarantees we'll get to your vehicle and provide you with the services you need. You can easily schedule service online or call our service center to find a time in our openings that works for you.
