Subaru Outback- maintenance schedule- air filter

I have an Outback with very low mileage. It is coming up for a scheduled 37,500 km or 18 month service and we have only done 16,000 km. Part of the service involves replacing the air filter. Is this an item that deteriorates over time like like oil or can I wait until the kilometres are higher before replacement?

Air filters are usually cheap and easy to replace compared to reduced gas mileage due to a dirty filter. Air Filters are not usually a warranty item and it's up to the auto owner to replace when needed. It should be checked every time an oil change is done and replaced it necessary. It can be dirty after short mileage if driven in dusty conditions.

How many miles can you can run with the oil transmission?


I couldn't find the manual for the 2005, the 2006 says the automatic transmission should be inspected every 24,000 km (15,000 mi) and changed every 60,000 km (37,500 mi).
The manual transmission should be inspected every 48,000 km (30,000 mi) and has no recommended change within 180,000 km (112,500 mi) where the maintenance schedule ends.

Here is the owners manual for the 2006, the maintenance schedule is section 6 almost the very end.

I am trying to find a maintenance schedule for my 2003 Passat...it has almost 130K miles on it, but everywhere I look the maintenance schedules stop at 100K. Any help is greatly appreciated!!


The 100K schedule repeats continually.
What needs to be done at 50K and 100K, then needs to be repeated at 150K for example.
The schedule only needs to go out to the longest delayed item.

The scheduled maintenance light has turned on. What do I need checked/replaced?


For the above head computer display, press the STEP button until you see the screen indicating that there's 0 miles remaining for scheduled maintenance. Then press and hold the reset button until that value returns to it's default state. This alarm is simply a mileage count down alarm to remind you of oil changes, air filter changes, etc. Resetting it will clear the alarm.

Sometimes a bad engine temp sensor (not the coolant gauge sender) will cause the ECU to stay in 'choke' mode.
