2020 Subaru Outback Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2020 Subaru Outback

Your Outback’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Subaru, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Outback and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2020 Subaru Outback to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Subaru's recommendations.

What Are 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2020 Subaru Outback drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Subaru Outback may need driveshaft attention if you feel 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. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. 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.

How much does it cost to fix your 2020 Subaru Outback drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
