2000 Schedule of Inspection and Maintenance Services


The best way to preserve your vehicle's finish and aid in avoiding rust is to keep the vehicle clean by washing frequently. Wash the vehicle only with lukewarm or cold water. Do not wash the vehicle in the direct rays of the sun, or use strong soap or chemical cleaners. Any cleaning agents used should be washed off promptly and not allowed to dry on the finish.

Calcium chloride and other salts, ice melting agents, road oil and tar, tree sap, bird droppings, chemicals from industrial chimneys and other foreign matter may damage the finish if left on the painted surfaces. Prompt washing may not completely remove all these deposits. Additional cleaners may be needed. When using chemical cleaners developed for this purpose, be sure they are safe for use on painted surfaces.

Any stone chips, fractures or deep scratches in the finish should be repaired promptly. Bare metal will corrode quickly and can develop into major repair expense. Minor chips and scratches can be repaired with touch-up materials available from your local Subaru dealer. Locate your local dealer by going to the upper right corner of subaru.com and input your zip code.

If your vehicle is damaged and requires sheet metal repair or replacement, be sure the body shop uses genuine Subaru Replacement Parts.


Vehicle maintenance is an important factor for proper vehicle operation. The vehicle's driver should ensure that fluid levels (engine oil, coolant, etc.) are checked frequently (i.e., each time you add fuel) in accordance with the instructions in the owner's manual.

Your Subaru vehicle requires an initial engine oil and filter change at 3,000 miles or 3 months, whichever first occurs. We suggest that you schedule an appointment for this service and any other necessary adjustments at your local Subaru dealer. Locate your local dealer by going to the upper right corner of subaru.com and input your zip code.

The frequency of scheduled inspection and maintenance services as set forth below is minimal. However, it may be necessary that they be performed more frequently depending on road conditions, weather, atmospheric conditions, vehicle usage and individual driving habits.

Maintenance, repair or replacement of the emission control devices and systems of your car may be performed by any automotive repair establishment or individual, using any automotive part which its manufacturer has certified will not result in a failure of your car to comply with the regulations of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
