    The 02 is the one with the glass tranny. I haven't heard anything real bad about the 06 but I also don't have that one

    What happened the first and second time it broke? Odds are it was probaly a "good faith" repair the first time and now they arent going to fix it. Rumor has it that the district rep has to approve/disapprove any tranny repairs. So if it's been fixed and then denied the second time I'm sure a Dis. Rep has been out and has probaly flagged the car in the datebase.

    It's worth a shot taking it to another dealership. Any mods on the car? What year?

    the 02 only has a glass tranny if you don't know how to drive.... 02 tranny with 115,000 on it with many launches and many many autocross events!

    I think ppl just need to learn how to drive for the most part.

    just my .02 cents

    Hey thanks for the quick reply! Well the car has less than 35,000miles on it, no track time, no abuse, and no mods. Iím going to try other dealerships and see what happens, I really hope this works because this is ridiculous! Has anyone had any luck with legal action?

    It's b/c of the dammed 2nd->1st shift that's impossible unless you're going 2 mph, and the super shudder problem. I'm sure that has something to do with it.

    I can shift my car into gear at 20mph if i so choose. That doesn't mean i do it all the time, i only drive like that if I am in an autocross even of some sort.

    All you really have to do is change over to a different gear oil and the the transmission will be fine

    I run Redline Gear oil 75W90 NS with 1 quart of Redline gear oil syncro mesh to help save the tranny I change the oil every 20,000 because i'm anal and it seems to be holding strong.

    Just treat the car good and it will treat you good.

    I just picked up the car a few months ago with 74k miles on it. Last month I changed to Scotty's cocktail and honestly, I'm not all too impressed. I'm used to Honda gearboxes. It doesn't stick as much and I could go into 1st a tad faster but I always have to double clutch. It just gets annoying at times, especially in downtown rush hour traffic with hills. It's just not fun to drive.

    which could be because the previous driver didn't take good care of the tranny or didn't know how to drive an AWD car.

    and the reason the Honda is going to shift better is because it is a FWD car. There are less moving parts in the drive train and it isn't a direct connection to the tranny like your Subaru is.

    I've never driven another non-subaru awd or a rwd or anything where the shifter is directly in the tranny so you may be right. I don't have a basis for comparison.

    I know for sure it isn't as good as my Mustang for how smooth it shifts, but even my mustang had trouble getting into first at times, and it was more clunky like these transmissions.

    I do agree that the tranny isn't the greatest but i'd try redline gear oil and some syncromesh and see how that works, because so far it's been the best thing i've done for my car.

    I've got RL lightweight shockproof, pennzoil synchromesh, and castrol hypoy C in mine. I've heard of people using ONLY the RL gera oil, but never GL gear oil with synchromesh.
