its a 1998 subaru outback, automatic.

the problem is that it is hesitant to downshift into first gear, and sometimes when it does downshift it makes a loud, high pitched noise.

can anyone tell me what might be wrong?

check the fluid level first.
how many miles? has the fluid ever been changed? change it and see if it's got any bad stuff in it (like parts, flakes or mush).
is it AWD? do all the tires match?
