2002 Subaru Legacy Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2002 Subaru Legacy

Your Legacy’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Subaru, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Legacy and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2002 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

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 help repair all of your 2002 Subaru Legacy drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Subaru could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. 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. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Subaru Legacy drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2002 Subaru Legacy? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
