My 2008 Subaru Outback (automatic) sounds like it is over-working. It sounds like a manual does when you need to shift to a higher gear. Also, my fuel economy seems way down. Thoughts?
No matter what speed I am going, it sounds like it is a gear too low. It doesn't have a high
rpm, but it just sounds like it's working too hard.
You didn't say how many miles are on your car, but, it may be the transmission. If you do need a transmission, and continue driving it will eventually ruin the engine since it's working too hard. Take it to a garage and get it checked out.
