Subaru Outback Manual Defect
By chrosb on

Vehicle

2004 Subaru Outback Limited AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

BEWARE!!! Serious problems with inability to maintain stable engine speed when going from no throttle to very slight throttle and back, most noticeable in low gear, when looking for a parking spot, for example. Also apparent using cruise control at freeway speeds. Results in neck- jerking acceleration and deceleration. Quite annoying, if not seriously unsafe. Passengers notice and comment on problem. Test drive carefully. We didn't and now find that it is typical of all Outback manual transmission cars. Dealer says it's "normal."

Best Features

I'm not very happy right now.

Worst Features

This is a serious issue, that Subaru is ignoring.
