Questions About 2011 Subaru Outback’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Subaru's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to 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 Outback’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Outback transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Subaru Outback’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
