The prospect of kids going back in school is the perfect time to service your car so it's reliable for the coming school year. You'll find both minor and major service procedure recommendations in your owner's manual. Basic services, like oil changes or brake pad replacement, can be done every 10,000 miles or so. More labor-intensive jobs will only be required every 40,000 miles.

You can ready your car for the school run and winterize it at the same time. Change the oil for a heavier weight and put a set of winter tires on for more control on slippery roads if your climate is prone to freezing temperatures. Top up antifreeze, wiper fluid, brake fluid, and transmission fluid.

For some help in preparing your car for the school season, you can call or visit us at Valenti Subaru in Westerly, RI to make an appointment. From tire rotations to oil changes, we'll have you ready to tackle the daily school commute.
