2006 Pontiac Vibe Drivetrain Service

2006 Pontiac Vibe Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Vibe's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Pontiac, from back to front. It’s one of your Vibe’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2006 Pontiac Vibe, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Pontiac's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

Pontiac Vibe Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2006 Pontiac Vibe drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Pontiac could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Pontiac Vibe.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2006 Pontiac Vibe? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
