I recently bought a 2016 Forester with 30000 miles. This is my first Subaru/car and I love it. I have a couple questions:

1) How do I take care of the car in order to maximize its life?

2) I want to get seat covers, I was told that I could not because of the seat airbags, is that true?

3) I also want to do some mods, do you guys recommend any mods?

4) I also just want someone to talk about Subaru's so let me know:)

Thank you for your time:)

What trans do you have?
Change the fluid in the diffs and engine with best quality synthetic, don't go cheap on the oilfilter.

Use search function for how to do the above, including transmission.

Welcome to forum - stay around and participate...

Sounds like sweet car.
I do maintenace early: change engine oil/filter and A/T tranny fluid 2X more often than factory specs - and first changed A/T tranny fluid at 25,000, way early, and tranny is still strong at 230,000.

I live in a hot sunny place, so tinted windows for me and use a sunshade in front window when parked for more than an hour.

Replacing the brake fluid is recommended at 30k miles.
