I have no other information other than I'm looking to buy a 2001 Forester that needs an automatic transmission. I have an automatic transmission that came out of a 2000 Outback Wagon. Are they compatible as far as gearing to the Forester rear end? Or, do I really need to get numbers off of both and check with my local Subaru dealer before investing in the Forester. The Forester is an S and looks pretty good (new tires, recent t-belt, clean interior......etc). Anybody know for sure? Thanks in advance-ED A

For sure-no but I did use a 2001 Forester Trans in a 2000 Outback Limited 4 cylinder car without problems.
