Maverick4u Posted March 16 Share Posted March 16 My daughter has a 2011 Legacy 2.5i . The other day her dash lit up and the AT Oil temp light came on. Apparently, her tranny is overheating. There was fluid that leaked on to the engine. Looks like some pressure built up in the tranny case and blew fluid out the seals. Took it to a local repair shop and they said the transmission is blown and needs to be replaced. A new CVT transmission is like $6100 just for the part (ouch!) But they said they could put a used one in for $3200. Aamco here won't even work on Subarus. They said there's a chip in the transmission and needs to be flashed and the Subaru dealer won't do it? At any rate, looking for any help or direction on what to do here. The used one this local shop found has 120k miles on it. Are there any good sources for remanufactured transmissions? Anything I can try before I plunk down $3-4k for a replacement? Thanks for any help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
