When your car needs service or repairs, our service center at Byers Subaru Dublin in Columbus, OH is there for you! If you recently purchased your new Subaru or used car from us, then maintenance may not be as fresh on your mind, but routine service is required to ensure the vehicle continues to run at peak efficiency for as long as possible. Subaru models are known for their resilience, but that reputation would not be possible without the efforts of customers such as yourself! So, let us answer some of the questions customers like you ask of our technicians for your peace of mind. Our service center is on-location at our dealership in Columbus, OH at 2455 Billingsley Road.

How Often is an Oil Change Required and How Important is It?

Your vehicle should get an oil change at least once every 6,000-7,000 miles to ensure it continues to pump clean oil into the engine. While synthetic oil blends allow your engine to go for longer between changes, this procedure is one of the most basic but most important. Over time, the engine oil will deteriorate as will the oil filter's ability to regulate it, so when sludge builds up, it can lead to engine damage in the long term.

What is a 'Tire Rotation?' Does it Involve Replacing All Four Tires?

Not necessarily, unless our technicians find immediate damage to the tires that cannot be patched. In a tire rotation, our technicians simply remove the tires on your car and move them to different select positions so that all four wear down at the same pace. When you schedule a routine tire rotation once every 6,000 miles, you will ensure that they last as long as possible and that your alignment maintains optimal balance. Ideally, your tires themselves should last for 25,000 miles before requiring total replacement.

How Long Will the Battery Last?

The battery on your Subaru should last for up to six years, with proper maintenance. You should inspect your battery every so often to ensure its water levels are properly maintained as excess humidity can make it seem as though the battery is "dying." Proper maintenance of the battery's connectors and holding unit will also help prevent corrosion and depleting power faster. For best results when cleaning, wet a rag with a mixture of distilled water and baking soda.
