Subaru vehicles last a long time.
But to keep them going, you do need to maintain them.
Some of the easiest things you can do for Subaru maintenance is to change your oil and check the air filter to see if it needs to be replaced.
You can pull out the air filter to see if it has a lot of dirt and leaves in it. Sometimes, if the particles are big enough, you can knock it on the ground to remove them. If it still looks good enough, you can wait until your next oil change.
Another reason that the air filter needs to be checked and changed is because if the vehicle has a turbo. You don’t want dirt ruining the impeller.
Even if your vehicle doesn’t have a turbo, you do want to have a good air filter to improve your gas mileage.
If you live in a place where there is heavy traffic and dusty conditions, it can actually reduce the amount of time between changing your air filter.
