2020 Subaru Legacy Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Subaru's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Subaru Legacy? Think twice before volunteering to tow a 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.
  • Does my Legacy's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2020 Legacy’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
