2011 Subaru Legacy Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 232013

Legacy 2.5i

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,500 miles


As of last year September 2013, I was driving in Manhattan NY, when I made a right turn on Park Ave, and the car stalled, but started back up. I called to make an appointment with Subaru, after five visits they said there is still no problem with my car. So I called customer service and filed a report and the person I spoke to told me to request a a driver's test with Subaru. I did and they found out that the transmission was defective so they replaced it with a re-manufacture one but I am having problems with shifting from park to drive and from drive to park. The front of car shakes when it happens, and the lights dim.

I am to take my car back on Wednesday coming but I feel I should take it to another Subaru dealer to see what they say.
