Subaru Outback 2011 interior of transmission failure

Asked by Aug 24, 2016 at 08:58 PM about the 2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My purchase of a used Outback, 2011, has
full transmission failure due to leakage
internally. Dealership quoted $9,990 to
replace, with a reconditioned transmission.
With a 12 month guarantee. Is anyone else
having problems?

Get a second and possibly even a third opinion. If it's that expensive and the vehicle is paid for, trade it in. That's a lot of money for a transmission, in my opinion! HTH. -Jim

JoanieF- I'm really sorry to hear this.... So, were there any symptoms ahead of time? How many miles do you have on your 2011???

JoanieF- couple more questions for you; did you have any shuttering on reverse? And, during the course of your time owning the car, did you ever have the CVT fluid changed? Thanks, -- Mark

JoanieF- hey, I found this for you on the True Delta website, a person who had a 2011 Subaru Outback with the CVT had a new valve body installed for $900.... I would check this out if I were you. See below, http://www.truedelta.com/Subaru-Outback/expensive-problems-253
