2020 Outback Onyx XT, 2007 Outback 2.5
I've been having a lot of issues with the XT that feel like the engine stumbling from a failing fuel pump under moderate sustained load, but it goes away when I put the transmission in manual mode. I don't even know where to begin with this. Is it normal? Has anyone else experienced this? Is this a software issue of the CVT constantly trying to be in a lower "gear" than it should be, then the turbo spooling up to compensate? A mechanical problem with the CVT and the engine trying to compensate? There are a lot of complaints in the forums about the XT feeling jerky or not smooth and I'm starting to wonder if this is the behavior that people are experiencing.
