Questions About 1989 Subaru RX’s Transmission

  • 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.
  • What can I tow in a Subaru? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your RX is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my RX's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Subaru RX 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
