When To Get 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your XV Crosstrek feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Subaru XV Crosstrek suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Subaru XV Crosstrek Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Subaru XV Crosstrek shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2013 XV Crosstrek Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Subaru's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Subaru XV Crosstrek? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Subaru intended.
  • Does my Subaru XV Crosstrek 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 XV Crosstrek is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Subaru service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
