EXTENDED MAINTENANCE GUIDE
KM
Applicable Subaru Models:
1990-2009MY Naturally-Aspirated 4-cylinder engines (all models, including SVX)
You won’t find many car manufacturers that bother to publish a maintenance guide that extends beyond the 160,000 km mark.
Of course, there’s a reason for that. But longtime Subaru owners know that their vehicles are capable of easily going past that
threshold and running strong well into the future. A vehicle with significant mileage needs special care, though, because parts do
wear out over time and an ounce of prevention is still worth a pound of cure. This is why Subaru Canada now offers a first for the industry – a
comprehensive extended maintenance schedule for our vehicles all the way up to 500,000 km. (In other words, many ounces of prevention.)

On all 2009 models, Subaru Super Coolant has been used from factory. Subaru Super Coolant
does not need to be replaced until 220,000 km / 11 years (whichever comes first). Repeat every
subsequent 120,000 km / 6 years.
GOOD – Minimum required maintenance to ensure your vehicle is safe while on the road.
Only on 1.8L,2.2L & 3.3L displacement engines only

Seasonal Check:
Every 10 years: Inspect SRS
Summer:
Winter:
• Engine coolant and windshield washer
• A/C output temperature
• Check for codes
fluid is good for –35 C (+/– 5)
• Check vents for indications of mold/mildew
• Inspect seat belts for fraying,
accumulated over winter or blockages
• Replace windshield wipers
and check operation
• Pressure test cooling system
• Rad fan operation
• Replace windshield wipers
We recommend you check your engine oil level every second fuel fill-up.
Following the periodic inspection and maintenance services prescribed by your Subaru Maintenance Guide is the best way to ensure your Subaru runs
smoothly for years to come. Visit your local Subaru dealer to have Subaru Certified Technicians take care of the inspections and maintenance services outlined.
