Can you clarify 'being slow to take off' ? The trans has controls to make it warm up quicker by keeping it in third for a certain time until a certain temp, etc. Does it lag / lurch / drag? You may want to go to www.subaruforester.org and ask there. You'll get far more accurate answers and people more familiar with this kind of thing.
