Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2016 Subaru Crosstrek

When should you have your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 2016 Subaru Crosstrek Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Crosstrek feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Subaru Crosstrek suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Subaru Crosstrek Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Crosstrek’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Subaru Crosstrek shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2016 Crosstrek Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Crosstrek's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Subaru Crosstrek get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Subaru intended.
  • Does my Subaru Crosstrek power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Crosstrek’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Subaru service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
