1996 Subaru Legacy Drivetrain Repair & Service

1996 Subaru Legacy Drivetrain Service

Your Legacy drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Subaru, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Legacy’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1996 Subaru Legacy, 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 Legacy 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 1996 Subaru Legacy drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Legacy 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 difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." 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 Legacy doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1996 Subaru Legacy? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
