Asked by Mar 18, 2015 at 04:30 PM about the 2010 Subaru Legacy

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

92K is not uncommon to have some transmission issues. Some go out much earlier, some later. If it was a defect, it would have failed soon after the car was new. I don't like CVT transmissions due to the fact that they have to be replaced vs repaired/rebuilt. Good luck!
