2017 Subaru Crosstrek Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Subaru Crosstrek’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 2017 Subaru Crosstrek Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Crosstrek jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Subaru Crosstrek suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Subaru Crosstrek Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Subaru Crosstrek shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

Questions About 2017 Subaru Crosstrek Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Crosstrek's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Subaru Crosstrek? 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 connect with the road how Subaru intended.
  • When should I have my Subaru Crosstrek power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Subaru's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
