Spring is here, so now is a good time to check on your car's service schedule and check oil changes and inspections off your list if you haven't already done so! Marin Subaru is here to help San Rafael drivers with all their spring service needs, so we encourage you to get in touch with us if your car is due for an oil change or inspection. We're eager to help you cross items off your to-do list and keep your Subaru running smoothly!

How can I tell if my Subaru needs an oil change?

Generally, you want to schedule an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles to keep your engine in tip-top shape. Your owner's manual can give you specifics based on your car and your driving habits. You also likely have an oil change sticker on your windshield that can tell you when your car is due for its next oil change. You can also check your oil yourself or give us a call if you need help!

Signs that your car is overdue for an oil change include rough idling, dark and dirty oil, and an oil smell in your car. We highly recommend staying on top of your car's oil change schedule to avoid these problems, and we're eager to lend a hand here at our Subaru service center serving San Francisco and Oakland.

Why do I need an inspection?

Regular multi-point inspections by professional Subaru technicians help to make sure that your car is in tip-top shape. They also give our team of experts the opportunity to uncover issues with your car that you might not have known about and address them before they get worse.

Ensuring that your car is safe to drive and free of small problems that could turn into big, costly issues is the primary goal of inspections, and we're happy to offer this service to drivers in the Petaluma area.

Feel free to schedule service at our Subaru service center near Novato to get started!
