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!

Oil & Fluids | Lafontaine Subaru in Commerce Township, MI

The Genuine Subaru Oil difference.

Engine designs vary from one automotive manufacturer to another, each creating different internal conditions that require the right type of oil to protect against heat and friction. This is why we recommend filling up with Genuine Subaru Oil, because it’s the ONLY oil formulated specifically for your SUBARU BOXER® engine.

Why choose Genuine Subaru Oil?

  • Engineered to clean and protect internal engine components between oil changes better than most leading aftermarket brands*
  • Formulated with a unique blend of additives, detergents, and modifiers specific for the lubrication needs of the SUBARU BOXER® engine
  • Reduces wear and cleans internal components to maximize engine life and maintain optimal fuel economy
  • Each batch is lab-tested over 10 different ways to help ensure consistent quality

*Based on a 2017 independent study conducted by Idemitsu Lubricants America comparing engine protection results between 0W-20 Genuine Subaru Oil and leading aftermarket 0W-20 synthetic oil brands.

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 with Factory Trained Teams who work on Subaru vehicles every day.

See when your Subaru should have its oil changed by using the Maintenance Schedule Lookup tool below.*

Stick to your oil change intervals.

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 between oil changes. It’s good practice to check the level regularly to help ensure your Subaru continues performing safely. It’s easy and anyone can do it. Here’s how:
