Fairtax4me and Bushwick-


Subaru dealer in southern New Jersey says a "converter" (?) in the transmission is not functioning properly. Apparently this part can be replaced without replacing the transmission. The dealer called Subaru of America, and the home office said "replace the entire transmission, and charge the customer zero"


Although the 2007 Legacy only has 65,000 miles, we still thought that this was generous, and are very pleased. While we have had more repairs with our Subaru's than we foresaw, we have been extremely happy with Subaru of America on more than one occasion. They have more than stood behind their vehicles with us.


When we bought the Tribeca, the GPS was messed up and the dealer failed repeatedly to fix it. Eventually it was fixed, and Subaru of America made 3 car payments for us as a compensation for our repeated trouble with a new vehicle.


thanks you both for your efforts and time

Interesting. I guess they figure that the torque converter is bad.
Nice that they're going to warranty it.
Hopefully that takes care of it. Thanks for the update.
