When pulling away from a stop the car will lurch, much like we used to say was happening when the car went into gear. Happens every two or three days. Dealer says nothing is wrong. I say he's wrong.

Asked by Apr 13, 2017 at 08:12 PM about the 2016 Subaru Outback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Nothing indicates what would replicate the experience. Rain or heat or needs
to get warmed up or. Nothing is constant among the situations. It just,
periodically has this lurch.
