Service Center FAQs

Routine maintenance is an integral part of owning any car near Kingston or Albany. While it's a reality for all drivers near Woodstock and Newburgh, many have questions and concerns about the various processes involved with service and repairs. We at Colonial Subaru have gathered the best answers to some of our most common service-related questions to help clarify the details. If you have other questions, please reach out to our service staff at (866) 949-7059.

What is Routine Maintenance?

Routine maintenance is made up of regularly-scheduled tasks to help a vehicle perform at its best over time. These tasks work to counteract the natural wear and tear of driving with recommended intervals. Subaru has service recommendations to help all its vehicles last longer. While routine maintenance tasks can vary widely, some of our most common appointments include:

  • Oil Changes
  • Battery Replacements
  • Wheel Alignments
  • Tire Inspections
  • Transmission Service
  • Etc.

How Do I Know When it's Time for Routine Maintenance?

We can recommend service intervals based on your car's mileage and your daily driving habits. Our technicians understand the maintenance needs of Subaru models and know how to help them last as long as possible. Bring your vehicle in for an inspection and we'll point you in the right direction for best care practices.

How Often Does My Car Need Its Oil Changed?

Oil change intervals can vary from car to car and from driver to driver. Different models have different oil change needs, and different drivers have different driving habits. However, a good rule of thumb is every 3,000-5,000 miles or every six months. Talk to one of our technicians about when your car will need its next oil change.
