2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5i AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
The transmission on my 05 sedan failed at 7,700 miles. A bushing failed causing the seal to burst and then catastrophic failure, high and low clutch burnout, etc. I'm concerned now about the quality of my Subaru.
I like the AWD and the way my car clings to the road in all weather conditions.
Make it possible to clean transmission fluid out of exhaust channels after seal burst so you don't have noxious fumes forever. I've been told there is no solution to the after-repair burning fluid problem.
