2008 Subaru Tribeca 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. 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 it is. Defying your Tribeca towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Tribeca transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Subaru Tribeca 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
