Subaru Legacy: Tachometer - Meters and gauges - Instruments and controls - Subaru Legacy Owners ManualSubaru Legacy: Tachometer

The tachometer shows the engine speed in thousands of revolutions per minute.

CAUTION

Do not operate the engine with the pointer of the tachometer in the red zone. In this range, fuel injection will be cut by the engine control module to protect the engine from overrevving. The engine will resume running normally after the engine speed is reduced below the red zone.

NOTE

To protect the engine while the select lever is in the “P” or “N” position (for AT and CVT models) or the shift lever is in the neutral position (for MT models), the engine is controlled so that the engine speed may not become too high even if the accelerator pedal is pressed hard.
