Can a Subaru Impreza tow a trailer

Security

Adjust your driving. The stopping distance of your Subaru will be longer with the weight of the trailer that pushes the vehicle. Subaru recommends a trailer equipped with brakes. The Subaru towing capacity is halved without a trailer equipped with brakes. Change your driving. Drive slower. Slow down on hilly road.

How to protect a Subaru transmission

If you are serious about towing with your Subaru, have a transmission cooler installed. If you regularly pull a trailer, change the transmission oil more often. When changing the transmission oil, make sure that it is sucked, it will purge 100% of the contaminated oil. This is much better than by gravity when only +/- 60% of the contaminated oil is replaced. If your transmission uses mineral oil, have it replaced with synthetic oil. Only the Tribeca was offered with the option of the transmission cooler. Avoid the hot weather.
