They're often easy to notice. 2018 Subaru Forester transmission problems could include shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood.

Questions About 2018 Subaru Forester’s Transmission

  • What can I tow in a Subaru? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your Forester towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
