Engine Noise and Hard Xmission shifting
By Eric Tanner on

Vehicle

2010 Subaru Legacy 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6M)

Review

1. Excessively LOUD Engine Noise, especially when first starting; 2. SHIFTING Gears – HARD, JOLTING, CLUNKING, CLUCKING and CLICKING: A. When shifting from Park to Reverse, most of the time (90%) there will be QUITE a big JOLT accompanied by a loud CLUNKING sound from under the car, and sometimes also a CLUCKING sound from under the rear; B. When shifting to Neutral and Drive, there’s not much of a Jolt; C. In general, Shifting from P to R to N to D and vice versa is always NOT smooth and there will always (100%) be a CLICKING sound coming from right under the car (like a cable snapping noise.) Suggestion and comment are welcome.

Favorite Features

Good styling and suspension. Although claimed to be "much" bigger than before but still can't compare with the roominess of the Camry, Accord, Altima, etc.

Suggested Improvements

Do away with the electric parking brake and go back to using the standard pedal/hand brake. MPG gauge is really not necessary. Temperature gauge is more useful.
