2008 Subaru Outback 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Replaced my 2006 Outback sport with the larger version. Nice upgrade and significant price increase. I liked the AWD and style of the 08. Car handles great. Constant problem since I have owned the car is the transmission. It has been fixed twice, the third time the shop could not "duplicate it" Going in again tomorrow. The transmission shifts hard and clunks, feels like it is slipping. It was really bad the first 2 times. Now it does it under 40 MPH in city traffic. It's driving me nuts, litterally!
Favorite Features
The car would be great if it worked properly. I would be so happy, if I didn't feel that the transmission may fall out of the vehicle in traffic.
Suggested Improvements
Put in a transmission that is better than the one you have. I leased this vehicle, and I wont lease another Subaru. I want to love it so bad, I want to be that Suby guy, I am just let down. Going back to Honda via Acura I think.
