| Subaru Oil Change|
To properly maintain your Subaru Forester, Legacy, Outback, Tribeca, Impreza, WRX or STi you need to change the oil and oil filter regularly. Unless most of the miles you drive are at highway speeds for more than short intervals the oil should be changed every 3,750 miles. Never should you go longer than 7,500 miles between oil changes. Turbo cars should have the oil changed every 3,750 miles unless synthetic motor oil is used. It is important to have your oil changed by factory certified Subaru Technicians.
Starting with the newly redesigned engine in the 2011 Forester, Subaru is requiring that 0W-20 synthetic motor oil be used in the naturally aspirated (not turbo) engine and that 5W-30 synthetic motor oil be used in all 2011 turbocharged engines. There are a number of significant advantages to synthetic motor oils:
* Superior protection against oil breakdown for a cleaner running engine and long engine life
* Increased protection against varnishing and deposits
* More tolerant to high heat in turbo-charged engines
* Superior lubrication, reduces engine wear across the operating temperature range and optimizes fuel economy
* Reduces oil loss due to evaporation and burn off
* Low viscosity (0W-20) improves fuel economy, reduces friction and increases power
With the synthetic oil the recommended oil change interval has been increased to 7,500 miles.
Checking the oil regularly is important as all engines use some oil in the course of normal operation. There are many factors that can affect oil consumption. Checking the oil at least once a month is good practice and once a week is better practice. If you are not having your oil changed every 3,750 miles the chances are high that a quart of oil will need to be added at some point. Keep in mind that as the oil level in the engine drops the oil has to work harder so it gets hotter and its level drops faster. Stop by our Subaru Service Department during regular business hours and we will be glad to check your oil for you.

| Subaru Cabin Air Filter Replacement|
There are a lot of contaminants out there that can get into your passenger cabin. Keep them out with Genuine Subaru Cabin Air Filters.
Drawn in through your vehicle's HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) system, they can make your cabin a less healthy, less comfortable place. These contaminants can be up to six times more concentrated inside your Subaru than out, and may include:
Pollen - Bacteria - Mold spores - Dust Particles - Road Dirt
Superior materials, superior protection - Constructed with cellulose, synthetic fibers, and thermoplastic resins, Genuine Subaru Cabin Air Filters trap fine particles and other airborne pollutants for superior filtration efficiency. Aftermarket filters are often manufactured with lesser quality materials that not only provide less protection, but can actually "shed", or release fibers into the passenger compartment!
Better design, fit, and performance - Genuine Subaru Cabin Air Filters are designed and manufactured to match factory specs and fit your vehicle perfectly. So they not only withstand extreme temperatures and moisture, but maintain proper airflow over the life of the filter, which means less strain on the HVAC system. Aftermarket filters with high airflow restriction can decrease heating and air conditioning performance.
Protect yourself, your passengers,and your HVAC system - Genuine Subaru Cabin Air Filters provide a crucial line of defense against these airborne contaminants, trapping them before they enter your Subaru HVAC system - or the lungs of anyone in the vehicle.
Genuine Subaru Cabin Air Filters also help your HVAC system operate at peak efficiency. Clogged, or dirty filters can significantly reduce airflow into the cabin, and can lead to poor heating and cooling performance, inefficient windshield defrosting, bad odors, even frozen air conditioning systems.
Call us with any questions or to schedule a time to have your Subaru Cabin Air Filter replaced.
| Tire Rotation|
Tires support vehicle load and absorb shocks and bumps from the road. Tires are the part of the drivetrain that contacts the road, and they help determine the comfort of the ride for vehicle occupants.
Tire wear varies from wheel to wheel. To maximize the life of each tire and ensure that the tires wear uniformly, rotate tires every 7,500 miles. Replace any damaged or unevenly worn tires at that time. Also, adjust air pressure in the tires and make sure the lug nuts are correctly tightened. Rotation of tires helps to increase their longevity.
Call us to schedule your next tire rotation in Boise at 888-329-0486.
