Why is Your 2018 BRZ’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. They're often easy to notice. Subaru BRZ transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Subaru BRZ transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your BRZ at all.

2018 Subaru BRZ Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Subaru's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Subaru tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my BRZ's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Subaru BRZ transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Subaru, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
