2005 Subaru Legacy Drivetrain Repair

2005 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. Care for your 2005 Subaru Legacy to maintain its performance power. Follow Subaru's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2005 Subaru Legacy drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. 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. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. 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.

How much does it cost to fix your 2005 Subaru Legacy drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
