Be Ready to Take on any Weather in Your Subaru

Just like you need to prepare yourself for different weather scenarios when you leave your house, your Subaru also needs to be prepped according to the weather conditions it will face.

As Texans, we know that depending on what part of the state you live, we are likely to experience the full range of weather conditions throughout the course of a year. The team here at Subaru of Midland Odessa wants to help you keep your Subaru ready for the next adventure, without the weather holding you back.


Check out this simple breakdown and learn how to easily keep your Subaru in prime condition no matter what climate you might be facing.

Warm Climate Preparation

If you live in a warmer climate area like our stomping grounds in Midland and Odessa, TX, you can expect pretty warm temperatures year-round. These types of areas expect more rain than snow in winter months and are great for exploring outdoors. While the exact weather conditions can vary depending on your locale, these are some best practices to keep your Subaru in prime condition:

  •  Inspect your tires' pressure, tread depth, and overall condition
  • Consider purchasing summer tires rather than all-season tires
  • Test the battery
  • Check your air conditioning system
  • Check the oil level
  • Check all fluid levels regularly
  • Check wiper blades and exterior lights
  • Check the brake pads and brake components
  • Inspect both the engine air and cabin air filters

Prepping for Summer

Moderate Climate Preparation

For those of us living in the areas north of Midland and Odessa TX, we fall into the moderate climate category. Moderate climate areas experience a little of it all, with fairly warm summers and a dusting of snow in the winter. Some of the best ways to keep your Subaru ready for anything in a moderate climate are:

  • Inspect your tires and check tire pressure, tread depth, and condition
  • Consider using all-season tires
  • Check the oil level
  • Check all fluid levels
  • Inspect your heating, cooling, and defroster systems
  • Test the battery
  • Check the wipers and exterior lights
  • Check the components of the suspension system
  • Check the wheel alignment
  • Check the brake pads and components

Prepping for Spring

Prepping for Fall

Cold Climate Preparation

If you decide to leave Texas to move further north, you might end up in a dramatically colder environment. Colder climates have harsher winters full of moderate to substantial snowfall and are ideal for those who want to tear through powder with an AWD Subaru. Summers in cold climate areas will still experience warm weather and summer rains, but for a shorter duration than warm or moderate climates. If you will be hitting the road in a cold climate area, here is what you can do to get your Subaru ready:

  • Consider switching to winter tires
  • Check and adjust tire pressure, as cold temperatures decrease tire pressure
  • Check tire tread depth and overall condition
  • Check the oil level
  • Check all fluid levels
  • Be sure to use windshield washer fluid designed for freezing temperatures
  • Check your wiper blades and exterior lights
  • Consider switching to winter wiper blades that can handle getting icy
  • Test the battery
  • Check the brake pads and components
  • Check the heating and defroster systems
