Tribeca transmission issues

Answered by CarsGuide 18 Jan 2013

When Subaru updated the Transmission Control Module in 2010 it did what it thought was needed to fix the problem, but clearly they discovered later that the problem was with the torque converter. All of that suggests the company was being helpful in trying to fix the problem. Now they are offering you a new torque converter, leaving you to pay the cost of fitting it. That's a fairly standard deal with a car as old as your daughter and son-in-law's, and I would accept it.
