2017 Subaru WRX Transmission Service & Repairs

Why is Your 2017 WRX’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 of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Subaru WRX 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. Let Subaru WRX transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your WRX isn’t working at all.

2017 Subaru WRX Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Subaru WRX? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. 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 WRX is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my WRX transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Subaru WRX transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
