2012 Subaru Forester Drivetrain Repair

2012 Subaru Forester Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Forester's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Subaru, from the axles to the transmission. 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. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 Subaru Forester, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Subaru's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Subaru Forester Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2012 Subaru Forester drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Subaru 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. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Subaru Forester.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2012 Subaru Forester drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
