The schedule of routine maintenance of cars Subaru Forester

The intervals of routine maintenance of the car stipulated in the present Section are calculated on independent performance by the owner of a vehicle of all necessary procedures. Duration of intervals was defined proceeding from the assumption that the car is maintained in a daily mode. Constantly to support a vehicle in peak the forms some of procedures at will of the owner can be carried out slightly more often. Composers of the present Management are assured that receptions of the maximum return from the power unit of the car and its other knots and systems can achieve only under condition of a conscientious attitude of the owner to care of the vehicle. It is not necessary to forget as well about necessity of maintenance of a trade dress of the car on a case of its resale.

At operation of the car in the conditions of strongly dusty district, an intense city cycle (frequent short trips), and also at frequent towage of the trailer, intervals of performance of procedures of routine maintenance should be, whenever possible, are reduced to a minimum.

Servicing of a new vehicle, in order to avoid infringement of factory guarantee certificates, should be made on a firm car repair shop of the company-manufacturer of the car.
