As the local Subaru service center Opelousas drivers depend on, we're sure you have many questions about the maintenance and oil change requirements your vehicle has, and we have answers.

Why do I need an oil change in my vehicle?

As you drive around town in New Iberia or Alexandria, the undercarriage of your vehicle begins to pick up dirt and debris from the roadway. Over time, this dirt can get into your engine and into the oil your engine requires to run smooth and perform well. A routine oil change entails draining that old, dirty oil, and replacing it with fresh stuff to keep everything under your hood running as it should.

When do I get an oil change?

Every manufacturer has a different recommendation for their specific makes and models. However, the typical range is every 3,000 to 5,000 miles.

What are the signs I need an oil change?

Waiting for your vehicle to give you signs, such as an oil light coming on, is not a god idea because by the time you recognize them it might be too late. But at Giles Subaru, we help you keep track of your oil changes and maintenance schedule, so you don't have to worry about remembering to do it!
