Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2006 Subaru Legacy

When should you have your 2006 Subaru Legacy suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2006 Subaru Legacy Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2006 Subaru Legacy, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Legacy feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2006 Subaru Legacy in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Subaru Legacy’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Subaru Legacy Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2006 Subaru Legacy’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Subaru up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2006 Subaru Legacy’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Subaru Legacy shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2006 Subaru Legacy suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2006 Legacy Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Subaru's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Subaru Legacy get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Subaru Legacy power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Legacy is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Subaru service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
