I took my car to the dealer to get some lame code cleared and I asked them to check out why my car have such an aversion to down shifting into first gear. They called me at work to let me know I need a new 1st/ 2nd syncro, first gear, and second gear. Apparently this is a big problem with early ’02 transmissions. As if that wasn’t enough they said there is also a problem my clutch shuddering. No shit, I knew that but thought it was inherent with the Subaru, just like I thought the first gear thing was. I was misinformed by assholes that didn’t want to do the repair I guess. I also need a clutch set, flywheel, differential mount and possibly a need differential.

They ordered all the parts and told me it would take them two days to get it going after they tear it down.

Just wanted to share…

Cheers.
