Transmission Services for 2017 Subaru Outback

Why is Your 2017 Outback’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Outback’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Subaru Outback transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Subaru Outback transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Outback’s not even driveable.

2017 Subaru Outback Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Subaru? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Subaru tow?   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 Outback’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Outback is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Outback's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Subaru Outback 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
