2010 Subaru Legacy Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Subaru's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Subaru? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. 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? Maintaining your Subaru Legacy transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
