The Subaru Liberty (1989-current) is a mid-size car marketed in North America and Japan as the Legacy. It comes in 6 cylinder, turbo or non-turbo models, with 5 and 6 speed manual transmissions, and 4-5 speed autos or Lineartronic CVT in later models. These are durable products and generally give long service life, 200,000 kilometres plus, as long as they are properly serviced and not abused. Getting your log book servicing done at All Drive Subaroo will ensure you get maximum life and reliability from your Liberty auto transmission or manual gearbox.
The Subaru liberty is one of the longest running Subaru models in Australia. Like every make and model, certain liberty models are known to have common faults, however most of these faults can be prevented through proper maintenance by a reputable Subaru specialist. For a vehicle that’s been in the market for so long, common faults in the Liberty transmissions due to a Subaru design flaw are actually uncommon. The most common fault we see in the Subaru Liberty naturally aspirated manual range is viscous coupling failures.
Customers complain of a restrictive binding/excessive resistance sensation while cornering or a whining/whirring noise while driving.
While misdiagnosis can be costly, the appropriate repairs using revised internal components are quite cost efficient.
Instead of replacing the entire transmission for a single internal component, All Drive Subaroo has several viscous coupling replacement options available that can save substantial amounts of money. Better yet, our product revision process means the fault is fixed for good!
We offer either repairs using selected used or new OEM parts, or replacement gearbox built to suit your budget. For peace of mind an industry-best warranty is offered with each build level.
We offer replacement transmissions at three build levels. Rebuilt, reconditioned and remanufactured.
