08 Tribeca Tranny problems

Discussion in 'Subaru Tribeca' started by barryestevens, Jan 3, 2008.

  1. Please Help--vehicle in shop with tranny or electrical problem. While
    driving, we get locked out of the tranny. Vehicle stays running with
    no power, like revving in neutral. This has happened at 3000 miles
    and the dealer found no problems, and could not interpret the computer
    codes. Happened again last week--still in the shop, any ideas?

    Lemon law!!!!!! Subaru has forgotten the formula that brought it bac
    from the dead- the Outback. They are trying to be a luxury brand and
    are rushing vehicles to market

  3. The lemon law can vary widely by State but is certainly worth knowing
    about. In my State, IIRC, you must have the same failure 3 times within
    a narrow window of time. Likely your dealership will swap trannies
    before the LL kicks in. Whatever they decide to do, you might ask to
    have a meeting with the 'zone manager' from Subaru and ask for an
    extended warranty at no charge.

    Is it happening spontaneously in no particular circumstance or is there
    any pattern?
    When it happens, can you select *any* forward or reverse gear on the gate
    and get moving again in some fashion?
    Any possible input to both questions *may* help pinpoint something. Just
    what you need with a new car hey?

    Usually there is out of service paert of the lemon law. If dealer has
    car for XX days etc the LL kicks in.

    Hi this literally just happened to me with my 2008 tribeca. i wa
    driving along and then clunk car completely stopped with all lights on

    the dealer told me bring it in we may have to reset the computer. so
    drove it. they had it for about 40 minutes then came out and told m
    they'd been seeing transmission problems with the tribecas and they wil
    need to replace the transmission that they'll probably have it for ove
    a week

    wow. we've had the car less than a year
