2011 Subaru Outback Drivetrain Repair & Service

2011 Subaru Outback Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Outback's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Subaru, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2011 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.

Subaru Outback 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2011 Subaru Outback 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 hard to put a timeframe on 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. 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.

How much does it cost to fix your 2011 Subaru Outback drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.

  • How often will I need Subaru Outback differential service? Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician. Differential service frequency varies from car to car.
