For 6 month interval services do customer have to pay during warranty period? If yes, should I take extended warranty or any other free service deal?

There have been deals offered for service in the past during the warranty period, sometimes depending upon the region of the country where you bought it, but in general, if you weren't told of this when you bought the vehicle, then it probably wasn't included. Simplest way to check this out is to call the dealer who sold you the vehicle.

Regarding extended warranty or free service deals, it all depends. I almost always say no, but it depends on your situation and risk tolerance.

And ..... welcome to the forum!

Unless your dealer has a special arrangement, Subarus don't automatically come with free service/maintenance, but some dealers do offer it as a reason to choose them instead of a competing dealership.

For an extended warranty, I would only buy the official Subaru ones described here: https://www.subaru.com/addedsecurity

I got 4 free services on my outback. But only at the dealer I bought it at, and only if I live in that state. I just had my first free service.

Just to show all dealers are different, my dealer gives free oil changes at the six month interval, but charges for the tire rotation and everything else not covered by warranty.

Any warranty repairs are covered by Subaru, but unless you bought a pack or your dealer offers scheduled maintenance with a sale you are responsible for all maintenance costs.
