This car, an 07 OBW, is my third, an automatic. At about 95 000 km (59 000 mi) I started to notice a slight shudder in the 1 to 2 shift when accelerating moderately straight ahead. It felt like the car was rolling over a rumble strip, and only occurred about every third or fourth time.
I immediately had the tranny fluid and filters changed at an independent garage. The problem persisted, and as I was nearing the end of the power train warranty, called the Subaru dealership 70 miles away and told their service rep about my problem. He said to bring the car in and they would do a complete tranny flush (this removes the fluid in the torque converter that the previous service didn't remove, since draining the tranny leaves half the fluid in the torque converter ). As well, he advised that they reflash the transmission program.
$265 later ($45 of which was the tranny flash charge) my problem is fixed. Basically I wasted the money I spent on the first tranny drain and filter change. Good Luck!
