Now that the school year has begun, it is time to give your Subaru a once over and check closely to make sure everything is in good condition. Check the battery, fluid levels, and tires – if there is anything that needs to be attended to, get it done before the season gets truly hectic.
You should also be sure to test all of the lights and make any necessary replacements, as well as the brakes. You will need to make sure that your Subaru is reliable day after day, and you won’t run into issues during busy days.
Routine Subaru Maintenance
In the craziness of back to school, don’t skip out on your scheduled Subaru maintenance. You may think you should push the appointment until it is a less busy time, but after a summer of vacations, day trips, and outdoor adventures it is extra important to be sure you are following the manufacturer recommended maintenance schedule.
It can also be a good idea to get your car in peak condition to set yourself up for success this school year. Bring your car into your local Niagara Subaru dealer to have the service team look the vehicle over, change the oil, and if necessary replace the air filter.
Keep Your Tires In Mind
Take some time to check your tire pressure. When tires are underinflated, they don’t hold their shape properly and more of the tire comes in contact with the road. This means that the shoulders of the tire wear down prematurely, causing you to have to replace them faster.
Underinflated tires also lead to increased rolling resistance. When a tire is more flexible as it rolls, it takes more fuel as you drive. By monitoring your tire pressure and making sure it is set to the pressure specified in your owner’s manual or tire information placard, you can extend the fuel economy of your vehicle.
Find Subaru Storage Solutions
Backpacks, lunches, extracurricular equipment – your Subie is starting to carry a lot more every day. Make sure you have the right storage in your vehicle to keep everything organized. Consider looking into organizers that hang on the back of your seat, to keep things you need within your grasp so you don’t forget them.
If you’ve got a full trunk of cargo for the day, you may need a storage solution. Subaru offers a number of accessories for all Subaru vehicles that can help keep everything organized.
