Why Get A High-Mileage Oil Change For Your Subaru?

One of the major benefits of high mileage motor oil is that it helps prevent sludge build-up. "What is sludge?" you may ask. Sludge is a tar-like residue that can build up in an engine as the result of oil thickening and the build-up is mostly caused by infrequent oil changes. High mileage oil can help remove engine sludge and reduce wear in older engines. By keeping up with your oil changes, you can also help eliminate this problem before it starts. As our engines get older and rack up the miles, compression in all of the cylinders can begin to weaken & seals can crack. This can cause your engine to lose performance and start to consume more oil or even worse, lead to costly repairs that pop up out of the blue. High mileage motor oil used by Mike Shaw Subaru in our high mileage oil changes is specifically designed for older engines and help maximize performance and reliability.

What Is Considered "High-Mileage" On A Subaru?

Today, cars, SUVs and crossovers are generally qualified of racking up more miles than those of a generation ago, especially Subaru. However, the secret to making a vehicle last forever remains the same: just keep up with maintenance. This includes oil changes, tire rotations, filter changes and typical vehicle inspections. It's no secret that high mileage vehicles require more care than younger ones.
