What transmissions will work in a 03 Outback? Its an automatic. I am just looking at options for a direct replacement.

What model?

IN general outback differs from legacy (gearing), H6 cars differ (gearing and ???), and VDC H6 cars are unique.

Also, 2004 will NOT work (at least not for H6 cars, probably not for all '04), the AWD signal into the trans is different.

Based on my experience, Hollander Interchange corrected their data service, but not all used parts yards use hollander.

OK, so a 2003 or earlier trans from an H6 outback, non-vdc, will fit. Not sure if there were any H6 legacies...

I see fewer 2004 transmissions erroneously listed than I used to on car-part.com, but still see some.

Mine was $800 picked-up, had 96k miles on it, 90 day parts-only warranty.

What is wrong with his trans? If it's different from what was wrong with mine...
