2018 Subaru Legacy Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Subaru's brakes? 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 I tow in a Subaru Legacy? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your Legacy towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2018 Legacy’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
