6,000 Miles

When your odometer hits 6,000 miles, your Outback will need an oil change as well as an oil filter replacement. A tire rotation and inspection will also be needed at this time.

12,000 Miles

Once you've reached 12,000 miles, it'll be time for another oil change, an oil filter replacement, and tire inspection and rotation. In addition to these services, the A/C filter will need to be replaced and the following items will need to be inspected:

  • Axle boots and joints
  • Parking brake
  • Disc brake pads and discs
  • Brake lines
  • Steering and suspension

  • Front and rear differential gear oil
  • Drive belt
  • Coolant system
  • Fuel lines and connections

Subaru Outback Preventive Maintenance

When it comes to preventive maintenance, repetition is key. Each of the following services will need to be repeated at regular intervals to ensure the best result for your Outback. That means for the 7,500-mile service, you'll need to repeat it every multiple of 7,500. With this practice, you can optimize every inch of your Outback.

7,500 Miles

Your first service is quite simple. After 7,500 miles, you really just need to get an oil change and a tire rotation. Don't forget to have your oil filter changed as well. A lot of people forget that detail, which can lead to fresh, but contaminated oil. A tire rotation is required to make sure your tires are wearing evenly, increasing their lifespan.

30,000 Miles

After you've driven your 2019 Outback for 30,000 miles, you'll start to see some of the fluids replaced, like the engine coolant and brake fluid. Speaking of brakes, make sure you're checking your brake pads. Depending on driving habits and how much weight you typically have in your Outback, your brakes could be significantly worn. Don't forget to change your air filter and spark plugs as well.

60,000 Miles

The belts in your engine are tough, but they won't last forever. At this time, it's good practice to get your drive belt and timing belt replaced entirely. If you haven't replaced your tires yet, now is probably the right time. The more worn your tires get, the more your performance and safety suffer.

90,000 Miles

If you've been taking advantage of the Subaru Outback's incredible off-road features, this service is especially important. Here, you're going to want to replace your shock absorbers to make sure your suspension is performing the way it needs to. More fluids also need to be replaced now, such as your differential fluid and transmission fluid. Your engine coolant will need replacing again, but keep an eye on the hose. You may need to replace the system entirely.

120,000 Miles

This service is a big one, so make sure you're prepared. In addition to every service you've gotten so far, it's time to get your engine mount replaced. In addition, you'll need to get your steering or suspension component replaced as well, considering how much time they've had to wear down.
