Some 2021 Subaru Outback drivers expecting a smooth ride are in for a rocky road ahead. We have been receiving numerous calls on the 1 800 LEMON LAW hotline from drivers complaining of Subaru Outback transmission problems, including delays in shifting, jumping and grinding out of gear, shakiness on the road and the potential for a burning smell.

At, for example, the same consumer reported a jerky transmission three separate times soon after their purchase of this vehicle, a problem which Subaru had not taken responsibility for.

If you are experiencing consistent Subaru Outback transmission problems, it is essential that you bring the vehicle back to an authorized Subaru dealer to have the matter addressed. Remember, these models come with a 5 year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty . If needed, take the service advisor for a drive to illustrate the transmission issues you are encountering. Make sure once you pick up your vehicle form repair, you also secure a detailed repair record outlining the mileage in, the mileage out, the days out of service, the problem you were complaining about, and the repairs performed to fix the problem. Once you have three or more repair records for the same reason, or your vehicle is out of service an extended period of time, you have the potential for recourse.
