2016 Outback 3.6R w/Eyesight -2013 Forester -23yr old F-150
I own a 2016 Outback 3.6R with 28k miles, purchased new, and have noticed a shudder coming from the drive line when coasting anywhere from 50mph to 30mph. It has been getting progressively worse so I decided to schedule a trip to dealer service department. The symptoms seem very similar to another thread http://www.subaruoutback.org/forums/138-gen-5-2015-present/317642-2016-3-6-glide-shudder.html At first, the service manager who has only been on the job for a month, said "We see nothing wrong". But after he and I rode in the car and I duplicated the problem easily several times, he agreed with me there was definitely something going on. After leaving the car for the tech to drive again, the service manager now says "This problem is with the torque converter and has no fix, you'll just have to live with it". I am now upset that they are refusing to do anything. I am worried as well that the car will leave my wife stranded on the side of the road. What do you guess I should do now? Thanks for your input.
