Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Did you purchase this car from the Subaru dealer or a private party?
Also, how many miles on the car?
Do you know if the service was done at the Subaru dealer?I ask because I believe the 06 model had to have the transmission fluid bled of air using the scan tool, and there were some updates for the transmission control module as well. It might seem lame, but you should be able to contact the Subaru dealer with the last 8 of the VIN and they should know if this has been updated. These are a couple of possible things that could solve the issue without replacing the transmission.
