Subaru Stuck? Don’t Ruin your Tranny!

November 23, 2010

Subaru is an all wheel drive vehicle but it does have some limitations to beware of. If you’re ever stuck in the snow or elsewhere, your Subaru will try to apply a balance of power to each wheel the best it can. This works best if all wheels have some traction. If one or more wheels has no traction and is just spinning STOP! Spinning one wheel excessively can cause harm to the transmission or differential. It may be best to take the time to get some “push” assistance or a tow truck to free the car or to put something under the tire that’s spinning so it can gain traction.
