The 30K and 60K Services are designed to make sure most of the prevenative maintanence is taken care of. This includes most fluids, filters, and several check points outlined by Subaru for each model, year, and even trim level. Brakes and Tires are also inspected for wear during this service. Because most Subaru’s come with All Wheel Drive we make sure to replace both transmission fluid and front and rear differential fluid (excludes vehicles with CVT Transmissions). As we follow all Subaru service points, there may be other items specific to your model and year that are needed. As with any service we offer, we always use our years of experience to go above and beyond the minimum service standards set by Subaru to prevent further problems we have found for each model.
In addition to eveything performed in a 30K or 90K Service, the 60K and 120K Services go a step further to inspect and prevent possible wear items and fluids that need more attention as your vehicle ages. For example: Your spark plugs may have been in your vehicle since new, and even though they may have been checked before, your higher milage car will benefit from more frequent checks and replacements of thses types of engine and drivetrain consumables. Updated fluids, or fluids more appropriate for the milage, may be used instead of those in the other services.
