New to Subaru's hoping my car is okay

Recommended Posts

Hi all!  Just got my first Subaru it is a 2009 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport that I recently picked up.  So far it has been going great but I will notice something and can't figure out what exactly is wrong or if there is a problem to begin with.  When driving I will step on the gas to accelerate and get up to 30-mph the Tachometer will rev up to about 2500-3000 until i get up to speed if I let off the gas pedal it will immediately drop down to 1000 rpm then back on the gas and back up.  Just wondering what is wrong if their is a problem I will be getting the transmission fluid swapped soon as well if that will help.  It is an automatic transmission as well.  Thanks ahead of time everyone!!

Welcome to the USMB, Chris.  Suggest you start a thread describing your problem in the Newer Generation forum.  And you might try a search here on the site--I think the problem has been discussed before.  Good luck.

What you're experiencing is perfectly normal. Most of the newer Subarus have CVT transmissions and it sounds like yours does too. So there isn't any gears. The engine just changes rpm depending on load and how much gas you're giving it.

If you're interested id suggest reading up on CVT.

But what your car is doing is perfectly normal for a CVT transmission
