2006 Subaru Outback Drivetrain Repair & Service

2006 Subaru Outback Drivetrain Service

Your Outback’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Subaru, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Outback’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2006 Subaru Outback to maintain its performance power. Follow Subaru's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Subaru Outback Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2006 Subaru Outback drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Outback might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on 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. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Subaru Outback.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2006 Subaru Outback? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
