Why is Your 2001 Legacy’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Legacy’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Subaru Legacy transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Subaru Legacy transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Legacy’s not even driveable.

2001 Subaru Legacy Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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 my Subaru tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Legacy’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Legacy's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Subaru Legacy’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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.
