1999 Subaru Legacy Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 092010

Legacy Anniversary Edition 2.5L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 127,000 miles

It started as an occasional problem. It is now significant. Had transmission drained and refilled. Mechanic said the seals are probably "going". Additive put in and it helped alot for about 6 months. Now I am getting stuck in neutral. Cars honk at me and think I am an idiot. When it finally goes into gear (run the shifter through all the grears a few times) and it finally gets me into drive or reverse, the car surges forward as it shifts into the end of the "reving".

I am not driving it for now. Getting a quote for a new transmission or considering buying another car. Not sure if I trust Subaru! Only 127,000 miles and the transmission has a major fault. My husband found a site that said this "was a common problem"; the biggest problem with 5 years of cars from Subaru. Subaru should give a free fix. FIVE YEARS of cars.
