Questions About 1999 Subaru Legacy’s Transmission

  • How much can my Subaru tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Legacy's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1999 Legacy’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform.
