I have a 2016 WRX with an automatic CVT transmission and 79k miles. While driving yesterday up a mountain road my RPM's suddenly increased, check engine light turned on and the car had troubles going uphill. I pulled over, looked for any dripping oil/fluids and couldn't see anything out of the ordinary. When I tried to put the car back in drive, the car would not move forward. I used my OBD2 scanner and the codes I pulled are P0700 and P0841, however, transmission fluid levels were not low. I had the car towed to a local transmission shop, but they haven't had a chance to look at it yet.
Anyone else experience this? Have any suggestions of what to do? Really hoping I don't have to pay $6k+ for a new transmission...
