I got my car in 2011 Outback 3.6R Limited in September, and noticed this problem almost immediately. I'm taking it in tomorrow for its first oil change, and will let them know about it. And I'll also let them know the info above from "jack214". Thanks! Other than that, I absolutely LOVE this car. Only other change I'd like Subaru to make would be to remember the last heating/air mode settings (kinda like the seat/stearing memory).Report it
I have the exact same sentiments and experience with my 2011 OB 3.6R Limited. Not sure what to do about it. I've taken it to the service dept, but they said there was no identified problem and therefore nothing to fix. This after a technician road with me and felt what I was talking about. I would like to get rid of the car, but don't want to lose money. I feel like I am going to be paying for a problem created by Subaru.Report it
I had the same problem with the transmission after 4,000 miles. Here's what you do. Call your dealer or Subaru directly. The dealer had to replace the valve body and then performed trans relearn. This corrected the problem. My dealer has done this on several of the 3.6 with the 5-speed. It still shifts smoothly after 12,000 miles. If you don't get any satisfaction from your dealer then call Subaru directly. They know the problem and are easy to work with. Good luck with your endeavor!Report it
