You can consult the Subaru maintenance schedules available on our website for assistance.
One thing many drivers are surprised to learn is that EVs have lower maintenance costs than traditional gas vehicles. Why exactly? Firstly, EV engines contain fewer moving parts than gas engines, and the reduced friction means the components can last longer.
Also, EV brake pads and rotors often last longer than in gas models. That’s because EVs use regenerative braking, and since mechanical brakes are used less frequently, you can get more mileage out of your brakes. You’ll still need these services at some point, but likely not as often as you would otherwise.
Plus, EV batteries require fewer maintenance checks than batteries in gas-powered cars. Driving an EV could save you money down the line.
