2011 new to me, car stalling

I recently purchased a 2011 outback with a clean car fax and supposedly dealer maintained and the car has been fine but it has stalled on occasion. It stalls when I come to a stop and starts back up with no problem. Twice it has stalled when I have stopped heading up a steep hill. Could this be fuel related??

might be transmission related.

and this is part of the CVT extended 100,000 mile warranty. (on 2010-2015)

how many miles you got?

(edit: and is this a 2.5 with CVT,...or a 3.6 with 5EAT)

You should be covered for an extra year. I'd take it in and have them take a look. Sounds like torque converter lockup which there is a TSB for anyway before they even extended the warranty. I got my TC replaced due to this same thing happening back in July. My OB is at about 109K.

Thanks for all of the feedback. It was in fact the TC. SoA is stepping up and paying for a 4 day rental car as well as parts & labor. The part is already in and the work gets done tomorrow! Go Subaru!
