2012 Subaru Impreza: Maintenance Made Easy

I've noted before that the engine bay in our Impreza is not pretty and that's fine. It's not a high-dollar sports car after all.

It is, however, a commuter car to many, so keeping it properly maintained is likely a priority for owners. Subaru seems to have taken this into consideration as the engine bay is not only well marked, the important parts are easily accessible. I mean, check out that oil filter, it's just begging to be changed. And once you're done with that, you need only to venture a mere inch or two to refill the crankcase. So easy, yet so rare. Nice work Subaru.
