Questions About 2012 Subaru Legacy’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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. 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 volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, 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.
  • When should I have my Legacy's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Subaru Legacy transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
