Just wanted to add to this list of problems. I have an 03 with average mileage and my gears/tranny are toast today. Nice fun ride on the tow truck and watched them have to drag the car since it was stuck in gear and wouldn't dissengage even with the clutch in. To unload it they had to shake it down the ramp and Im sure that was great for the dif's and tranny. Anyways, I'm hoping I dont have to go through the same crap other guys I know around here have and pay half for the gears or what not. I feel this is a worthless gearset to begin with if it can't last the life of the car. How many of you have paid for this repair and if so what were the costs? Im thinkin about goin with the RA gears if things get bad and subaru tries to bend me over. Thoughts?
