2017 Subaru Forester Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2017 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: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2017 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.

When to Get 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2017 Subaru Forester drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Forester might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. 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.

How much does it cost to fix your 2017 Subaru Forester drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
