2018 Subaru Legacy Drivetrain Repair

All About 2018 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: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2018 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.

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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2018 Subaru Legacy drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Subaru could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. 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. 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.

How much does it cost to fix your 2018 Subaru Legacy drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
