What Does Your Subaru Legacy Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. 2013 Subaru Legacy transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Subaru Legacy transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Legacy at all.

Questions About 2013 Subaru Legacy’s Transmission

  • 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for 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. Defying your Legacy towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
