It's not Magic. It's Just Maintenance
You may have opened up your vehicle's hood and noticed some yellow caps. Underneath those yellow caps, you'll find multiple fluids that provide important functions for your Subaru. These fluids support a number of critical systems, and are key to your vehicle's overall performance.
When you visit our Subaru Service Center in Lee's Summit, factory trained technicians will inspect those fluids as part of a multi-point inspection. However, it's important for you to check them from time to time as well. Just look for the yellow caps under the hood. You can refer to your Owner's Manual for more detailed instructions.
Oil Changes and Levels
Routine oil changes are a great way to help keep your vehicle in peak condition and help ensure a longer life with less wear and tear. Whenever your vehicle is due for a routine oil change, don't put it off. Bring your car to our Service Center where factory trained and experienced technicians work with Subaru vehicles every day. You can trust that all work is done by a team of dedicated professionals, genuine Subaru parts will be used, and all work will be completed in a timely manner.
It is important to take a proactive approach in maintaining your vehicle, and Subaru recommends that you monitor oil levels at every second fuel stop. Certain driving styles may result in your engine using more oil than what is consumed between routine recommended oil changes. When you check your oil, if it is low, simply top it off to the recommended level. It's important to your vehicle's performance to check all fluids regularly, and top them off as needed. It's a simple process, and anyone can perform it. If you'd like more information, videos are available here demonstrating how to do this.
