2017 Subaru Crosstrek Transmission Service

What’s the Importance of Your 2017 Crosstrek’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Subaru Crosstrek transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Subaru Crosstrek transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Crosstrek at all.

2017 Subaru Crosstrek Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Subaru Crosstrek? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Crosstrek towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Crosstrek transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Subaru Crosstrek transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Subaru. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
