Reverse gear problem


Recommended Posts

I have a 2015 Legacy and I love the car. But lately it seems like I don't have complete control over my acceleration, when starting off, especially in reverse.


Yesterday, I backed into someone because of this. When I first pressed the gas pedal, it felt as if it wasn't going to move. Then it accelerated too much and there I went. :(


There are times when just easing off very slowly is necessary but with my car, this is hard to do. What is the cause and can anything be done?

Thank you for the reply. I was out today and didn't notice this happening again so I guess I will keep an eye on it. Hopefully, it won't happen again because, as you say, it is certainly unacceptable ( and scary).


This is a fairly big group here so if there had been any others with the problem, I'm sure they would say so.
