Rairdon's Subaru Lineartronic 
Continuously Variable Transmission Specifications

Subaru Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)

Subaru's Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission system creates a seamless transition between higher and lower gear ratios. Working in harmony with the Horizontally Opposed Boxer Engine, the Subaru CVT eliminates hesitation and preserves the vehicle's momentum, which can often be lost with conventional automatic transmissions. Because the Lineartronic CVT System is designed to be compact and lightweight, it allows your Subaru to remain as agile as possible, while still optimizing gear ratios, and providing higher fuel efficiency. The Subaru Lineartronic CVT is available on the Subaru Impreza, Outback, and Legacy, all in stock at Rairdon's Subaru.

Automatic Transmission with Manual Shift Mode

Also available with Subaru's Lineartronic CVT system is Manual Shift Mode. Manual Shift Mode gives you smooth manual shifting with its simulated six-speed manual transmission, allowing you a sportier driving experience in your Subaru. Select models feature paddle shifters, putting the shifting power right at your fingertips. Another advantage to the Subaru Lineartronic CVT is that it often requires less maintenance than conventional automatic transmissions, savings you'll see at every service appointment.
