2013 Outback Subaru Steering & Suspension Services

2013 Subaru Outback Maintenance Schedule

When does Subaru recommend steering and suspension service for 2013 Subaru Outbacks?

Does Your 2013 Subaru Outback Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2013 Subaru Outback, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Outback bounces, drifts 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 2013 Subaru Outback in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Outback suspension system needs repair, 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 Outback steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Subaru Outback Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2013 Subaru Outback’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 2013 Subaru Outback’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Subaru Outback shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2013 Subaru Outback’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2013 Outback Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Outback's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Subaru Outback get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Subaru intended.
  • Does my Subaru Outback power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Subaru service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
