I would get the car checked SOON, It sounds like it might be the tranny or the "kick-down cable" (they might be called something else by Subaru). This is something I would not let go for much longer. Best of luck.

Could also be the valve body. Wife's '99 Saturn did the same thing, started slamming into reverse, and in that case the solution was to replace the valve body in the transmission at a cost of around $500. I did the labor or it would have been quite a bit more.

has the trany ever been flushed? if the fluid hasnt been changed than the tranny will slam into gear after a short hesitaion.
