2020 Subaru Outback Maintenance Schedule

When does Subaru recommend steering and suspension service for 2020 Subaru Outbacks?

When To Get 2020 Subaru Outback Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2020 Subaru Outback, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Outback feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2020 Subaru Outback in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 Subaru Outback’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Subaru Outback Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2020 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Outback’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Subaru Outback shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Outback’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2020 Outback Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Subaru's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Subaru Outback? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Subaru intended.
  • When does Subaru Outback power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Outback’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Subaru service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
