2003 Subaru Outback 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 62000 miles
When I start uphill from a stop, the auto transmission seems to not be in 1st gear; I have to pump accelerator to convince it to down shift and move the car faster than a crawl. Similar problem at speed, but not consistently - and occasionally I feel a shudder as the transmission comes in and out of top gear at 40 - 50 mph. At 60K the fluid was changed. The shop just had the car a full day, and "didn't experience the problem" - but leaving the shop - I couldn't get up the hill from the parking lot until I stomped on the gas. With this low mileage, I shouldn't need a new tranny. Could this be a vacuum problem?
have the same problem?
