This is a discussion on Transmission warranty woes only (problem occurrence log) within the Transmission & AWD forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; as someone said above, at least it gives you the opportunity to upgrade to a gearset that is much stronger...

    no, he runs a dogbox. Though he did tell us a while back that he misshifted into 2nd and stripped it clean. Had to get 2nd gear replaced. DOH!

    yeah too bad jds hasn't replied yet with more info. i still suspect a little too much "spirited" driving combined with more novice manual drivers could be the culprit, but we'll see. not to say anyone doesn't know how to drive, just that the basic market for this car, and the type of car it is are a general tough combination.

    The other night, right after my break-in period expired, i grabbed for second, heard grinding, came to a stoplight, tried to put it in first... and nothing, i let the clutch out and it made noise again, so i had to put my flashers on, got the car to roll in second, took a left turn, then i could put it in first again... WTF is goin on with my car???? it seems fine now, but i have a feeling i may be toothless somwhere... Subaru tried telling me it was probably because the clutch fluid was cold... i think somethin fishy is goin on with these subie transmissions, im not a retard driver... but this scared the hell out of me

    Add me to the list...

    15K miles with TurboXS Stage 4. Grinding into fourth gear under WOT. Syncros going bye-bye. But, it's only just started. Looking into STi tranny or another aftermarket upgrade.

    Boohoo...I knew the OEM one wouldn't last.

    Update:

    3-4 shifter fork is dorked.
    4 gear syncro is messed up too.

    Getting them both replaced as a temporary stop-gap until after the new year when we swap out the entire piece of crap for the STi 6-speed tranny!

    I have problem too, I'm in the process now of converting back to stock to try to take it in to the dealer over Christmas, since I'll be off work for 2 weeks. I have 22Kmi. and my clutch is going and 1st has grinded since the car was brand new (only it's gotten worse over time). It grinds into 1st from neutral also. Will report back if SOA doesn't turn me away at the door...

    My second gear doesn't work right now. I'm having to shift from 1st to 3rd to get anywhere. For a while the stick was doing this thing wehre it woudl randomly decide to refuse to go into the 2nd gear slot for about 30 minutes and then start wroking agani out of no where. AT this point it's done it but it's been 2 days since it happened and it hasn't gone away. Although now at random times the stick will just refuse to go into any of the slots for about 10 to 15 seconds and then start wroking again- All of the gears except for second, it stays permenantly broke.

    I called the Subaru dealership and they said that their technician was on vacation and they would not be able to look at it untill december 23rd. It's december 11th today. If it starts working again that would be nice but they've always told me that they can't look at it untill it's broke right then and there. So now is my chance to get them to look at it. Think they'll give me warranty problems with my new turbo, exhaust and fuel stuff? The exhaust is just about the only obvious modification. They probobly won't even notice that the Turbo isn't stock.

    Does any one have any idea what this might be? The car has 24,000 miles on it. The problem does happen a lot more when I'm driving fast. I'll keep posted about what happens.

    I just bought a 2002 WRX sedan two weeks ago with 12k on the clock and a few days later I discovered a tranny problem. The car grinds going into 5th once the tranny is warmed up. Since it requires driving 5-10 miles before this happens, I did not notice the problem on the test drive. In any case, the car will have been in the shop a week tomorrow. They tell me that hopefully they will have it done Friday. I haven't gotten an explanation of the problem yet, but they did assure me it would be covered by the warranty. The car is bone stock.

    I guess I don't know too much about how the previous owner drove the car, but it boggles my mind how things can get f'd up between 4th and 5th. My guess is most of the hard driving would be done in lower gears, so I'm hoping it's just a manufacturing defect and they will get it fixed right.
