I have a 2013 Outback 2.5i, about 500kms on it so far. This may not be a problem, but its not something I remember any of my other cars doing. In the mornings when I drive to work, I notice that it revs to high while moving at around 60km/h (roughly 40mph). It will be revving at 2K. Really feels like it needs shift up a gear to get that smooth ride. Other times, it would normally be revving above 1K when cruising, and thats a nice smooth ride.

This just because its cold that its revving higher?

Yes. The ECM is keeping the gear longer to warm it up faster. If it persist after its warmed up, get it back to the dealer for a check.

I will keep an eye on it, it has normally gone away after being warm, just wanted to be sure as have never noticed this in any other cars I have owned.

thanks
