Breanne Cameron (Raleigh, North Carolina) - 1998 Subaru Outback
Transmission. It's an automatic but drives like a manual being driven by someone who can't drive a manual! Slow to shift from 1st to 2nd--worse in cold weather. Guys think the transmission is on its way out, take it to a tranny shop and get an assessment. Using an additive might help free up sticky valves.
