You already know that routine maintenance is the key to keeping your vehicle running well for a long time. But how do you know when to have those routine appointments taken care of? Let the team at Giles Subaru help. Not only can we take care of all your necessary service appointments, we also take the guesswork out of caring for your car or SUV.

Whether you drive a Subaru Ascent in Alexandria, a Subaru Impreza in Lafayette, or a Subaru Outback in New Iberia, your vehicle will need to have its oil changed and replaced with fresh fluid periodically, usually every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, depending on what type of oil you use.

As you drive around, the undercarriage of your vehicle picks up debris and dirt from the road. This grime gets into your engine and as the oil moves around the engine system to keep things running smoothly, it begins to collect the tiny dirt particles, which eventually clog your oil and make it thick with gunk. Flushing that old oil out and replacing it with new can help the entire system sun better.

With oil change recommendations varying greatly depending on make, model, and type of oil, it's best to trust an expert service team to help you navigate when to get the oil changed, as well as when to take care of other routine services. Access our online oil change page to learn more. We conveniently offer a variety of tools on our website, including:
