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."
