I’m sur­prised to find the Aus­tralian ser­vice in­ter­val for my new Subaru Im­preza is six months or 12,500km and, un­der some con­di­tions, it may be more fre­quent. The owner’s man­ual states 12 months or 15,000km, as do most other pop­u­lar man­u­fac­tur­ers. Are Subarus less ro­bust or is this an ex­tra rev­enue earner? Gary, email David Row­ley of Subaru Aus­tralia replies: “Road con­di­tions, weather, at­mo­spheric con­di­tions and ve­hi­cle us­age prac­tices vary from coun­try to county and, as such, own­ers are ad­vised to con­fer with their lo­cal Subaru dealer for the main­te­nance sched­ule for their ve­hi­cle. For this rea­son, the main­te­nance sched­ule for Aus­tralian spec­i­fi­ca­tion Subaru ve­hi­cles may be dif­fer­ent to those gener­i­cally set out in the owner’s man­ual”.
