Effects to transmission of inappropriate towing
My 06 Outback(60K) got towed today. It was hitched from the rear and towed about 4 miles.
Another time I will vent about how it got to this stage.
My concern is that what kind of damage would have been done to the transmission and drive-train?
After I got it out of the impound yard I noticed that the gears sound a slight thud when shifting in full auto(D), not sure if it is just me being too peculiar about the sounds coming from the car or could actual damage have been done.
I want to weigh my options, transmission damage, transmission inspection if possible to evaluate a legal action against the party responsible.
