2018 Subaru Crosstrek 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 I tow in a Subaru Crosstrek? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Crosstrek’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Crosstrek's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? 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.
