2006 Subaru Forester Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2006 Subaru Forester

Your Forester’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your Forester and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2006 Subaru Forester to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Subaru's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are Subaru Forester 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2006 Subaru Forester drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Forester might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. 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. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Subaru Forester doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2006 Subaru Forester? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
