anyone have an issue with a 2006 subaru outback limited 2.5i that is "sluggish" when backing up, especially if wheel is turned??
Car feels as if emergency brake is on when backing up, if wheel is turned going back or forward.
Mechanic is perplexed...has never come across this before.
I assume you have a "binding" sensation on tight, low speed turns. If your car is an automatic, the "Four wheel drive" solenoid will most likely need replacing. This is located at the back of the trans and does not require the entire trans to be removed for its replacement. Sometime changing the trans fluid can remedy the issue, but more often than not, the solenoid will require changing.
