Default Just hit 35,000 miles, have done no maintenance

I own a 2006 WRX with a turboback exhaust, short ram intake and tuned by accessport. Aside from changing the oil and switching up the break pads when they wear down, ive done NOTHING else.

Now that ive hit 35k, what should i have done as far as maintenance and upkeep?

Maybe the 30k maintenance is a good place to start....

Let LED's light your way!


AP, exhaust, and going through brake pads, you fall under the 'severe conditions' aspect of Subaru's maintenance schedule. Forget the 30k service interval as a starting point - that's for cars that are simply driven back and forth.

Here's a reference for you: http://www.subaru.com/content/downlo...006SchedCA.pdf

Mileage, time, or conditions - whichever comes first.

2006 WRX with 35,000 miles that's about 6,000 miles per year. Not bad at all!
Not sure if that is severe conditions?
I average closer to 12-15T / year.

Looking at the schedule, air cleaner, coolant, brake fluid, and plugs (based on 60 months). Most people would do their gearbox and diff oil, but that's not on the maintenance schedule.

I would do oil/filter, air cleaner, coolant, brake fluid, pcv and inspect to see if you need belts and hoses.
