Transmission blown at 4,200 miles

Review

I have owned many Subaru models in the past years. This new 2008 Outback will be my last. The transmission blew out at 4,200 miles and left me stranded. I think that the new transmission selection of different modes might have contributed to failure. This new feature is more of a gimmick than a useful option. Ride of car is not good, very jarring over small potholes or minor dips in road. Way too much road noise. Leather quality of seat not very good for 32k car. Overall, car is not worth the money and quality of parts and the interior is lower than previous models.

Favorite Features

All wheel drive.

Suggested Improvements

Seat quality and comfort. Self dimming side view mirrors. Road noise must be lowered.
