2013 Subaru Forester Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2013 Subaru Forester

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Forester's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Subaru, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2013 Subaru Forester to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Subaru's recommendations.

What Are Subaru Forester Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2013 Subaru Forester drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Subaru could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for 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. 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.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2013 Subaru Forester? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
