2005 GMC Safari Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Safari's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your Safari and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2005 GMC Safari, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to GMC's recommendations.

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2005 GMC Safari drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Safari might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your GMC Safari.

How much does it cost to fix your 2005 GMC Safari drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
