2009 Subaru Outback Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2009 Subaru Outback

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Outback's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2009 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.

What Are Subaru Outback 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2009 Subaru Outback drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Outback might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Subaru Outback doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2009 Subaru Outback? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket 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.
