2003 Subaru Impreza Transmission Service & Repairs

Why is Your 2003 Impreza’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Subaru Impreza transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Subaru Impreza transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Impreza’s not even driveable.

2003 Subaru Impreza Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Subaru? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Subaru tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Impreza towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Impreza's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2003 Impreza’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Subaru's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
