2023 Subaru Ascent Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Subaru? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Subaru? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your Ascent towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Ascent is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Ascent's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Subaru Ascent transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health.

Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
