The 2.5 engine is actually quite good with the OB this is my second one the first one went 160,000 miles in the bay area and SF along with towing a boat up and down the west coast. However we got the CVT because the 6spd MT was terrible and the subaru we replaced was a 5spd MT. At 16,000 miles of Bay Area traffic and boat towing the CVT and the new 2.5L outback is great. Zero issues very happy with it.Report it
Something is off here... the model is identified as a 6-speed manual; the problem is a smell of fried "clutch"; and the supposed reason is a problem with the "transmission coolant tube". Since when do have manual transmission coolant in them? Some more information would be helpful.Report it
