2009 Subaru outback cvt transmission. 2.5


Asked by Al Mar 27, 2019 at 05:32 PM about the 2009 Subaru Outback 2.5i

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi guys! My son just purchased a 2009 outback and the tranny went. We had it replaced through a tranny shop with a used unit with 110000km. Works great but AWD light steadily flashes once you drive a few km. Dealer said front wheels are reading 70kph while rears are reading 50 kph. Dealer said wrong transmission installed with wrong gearing. Vin number from doner car say parts are the same....Please help. Dealer did do a relearn for the transmission.

2009 Subies have an automatic, not a CVT. I wonder if you have a problem with the center differential.
