Why is Your 2006 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 your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Subaru Legacy transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Subaru Legacy transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Legacy isn’t working at all.

Questions About 2006 Subaru Legacy’s Transmission

  • 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 your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Legacy’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Legacy is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • 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. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
