2017 Subaru Forester Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Subaru? 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.
  • What can I tow in a Subaru? 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. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Forester is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Forester's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Subaru Forester 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
