Oil & Fluids | Lafontaine Subaru in Commerce Township, MI

Stay Current with the Oil and Fluids in Your Subaru Vehicle

When it comes to keeping your Subaru model running as well as it did as it left our Commerce Township showroom, it's incredible how important the fluids that run through it are to its longevity. The staff members here at LaFontaine Subaru are well-trained to know how each of our available Subaru vehicles run efficiently, and a large reason for their success comes through a healthy supply of fresh oil. As a result, our customers from Novi, West Bloomfield, Farmington Hills and Troy, MI have been able to keep on with the adventures they take in their healthy, all-wheel driving rides.

Since everyone has a different oil type and viscosity requirement, as well as different intervals to remember, it's important to keep in mind how often your specific model needs to come in for an oil change. Simply check out the chart below to see what's recommended for your current model, or maybe even a future model that you've had your eye on. By staying up-to-date, you're able to guarantee that your Subaru will continue to ride smoothly for years to come!


Ever wonder what’s under those yellow caps?

Your Subaru uses multiple fluids to help support its various systems and overall vehicle performance. Our factory trained technicians know all about them, and inspect these key fluids during the multi-point inspection. It’s important for you to keep an eye on them from time to time. It’s simple – just open your hood and look for the yellow caps. For detailed instructions, refer to your Owner’s Manual.

Engine Oil

When it’s time, an oil change is something you shouldn’t put off doing. That’s why our Service Center is conveniently open for you. Our technicians are factory trained and work on Subaru vehicles every day. Their training and experience ensures that the job will be done professionally – with Genuine Subaru Parts – in a timely fashion.
Between oil changes, Subaru recommends that you check the oil level on your dipstick at every other fuel stop. Depending on your driving style and other conditions, your engine may consume oil more frequently than the recommended oil change intervals. So check the level and top it off if it’s low. It’s good practice to check vehicle fluids to help ensure your Subaru performs safely. It’s easy and anyone can do it. View the videos above to see how you can check your vehicle’s fluid levels.
