Subaru Forester: Continuously variable transmission / Driving tips

CAUTION

If the accelerator and brake pedals are depressed at the same time, driving torque may be restrained. This is not a malfunction.

  • Always apply the foot or parking brake when the vehicle is stopped in the “D” or “R” position.
  • Make sure to apply the parking brake when parking your vehicle. Do not hold the vehicle with only the mechanical friction of the transmission.
  • Do not keep the vehicle in a stationary position on an uphill grade by using the “D” position. Use the brake instead.
  • The engine may, on rare occasions, knock when the vehicle rapidly accelerates or rapidly pulls away from a standstill. This phenomenon does not indicate a malfunction.
