Im bummed about my first new car.
My wife and I, recently married and just move cross country to the bay area. We bought a new subaru thinking that they were reliable.
We've had the car for about 5 months now and on several occasions have experienced loss of power and the sent of burnt clutch when heading up hills. In august we recieved a notification from Subaru that there was a recall maintainance on the transmission. some holes were missing on the transmission coolant tube.
We promptly had the repair taken care of. since that time we have experienced the same issue a few more times.
I think the problem is that the car is too heavy for the base model's engine.
