Having problems with your 1992 Subaru Legacy ?

Transmission does not engage into reverse sometimes.

\015 I am considering buying a 92 Subaru Legacy Wagon. It is generally in fair condition, but has a problem with the auto tranmission. All the forward gears work fine but when the car is stopped and put into reverse it sometimes does not want to go into gear until the shift leaver is moved back and forth several times.this is either after being parked or after it has been driven and then backed up into a parking spot for example. It has 279,000 km and needs some minor body work on it. Aside from the transmission, issue it is in fair condition. The present owner has not pursued identifying the transmission problem and is not willing to spend any money doing so. I have asked a reputable tranny shop and was given a verbal repair estimate of anywhere from $300.00 to $3,000.00. I love Subaru's but am not in a position to get a $3,000.00 surprize bill. Can anyone please shed some light on this situation.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 20-09-2021

Sounds like filter and fluid change would be in order. If it does finally go into reverse that would be my best guess. Hope this helps and have a great day.
