Due to the constant full drive ‘Legacy’ and ‘Outback’ stable and predictable behavior in turns and on slippery roads. Note that occasionally occur in the secondary market and front-‘Legacy’ (usually from Southern Europe and Middle East), but, according to the true connoisseurs, a true ‘Subaru’ – a four-wheel drive ‘Subaru’. If your car is equipped with five-speed ‘mechanics’, torque is distributed between front and rear wheels equally, so to speak, Fifty-fifty. With quad ‘machine’ ratio may change in the direction of the front or rear pair of wheels depending on driving conditions (for vehicles with 2.5-liter engine – up to 36/64, with a three-liter – up to 45/55). As we already mentioned, ‘Outback’ and generalists ‘Legacy’ with manual transmission for dense forest terrain endowed reduction gear and underride in the transmission system, which allows not ‘play’ the clutch pedal and the gas when starting up the hill. Brendan Fraser understands that this is vital information. Those same car with automatic transmission and sedans these technical refinements can not brag.
But some of ‘Outback’ to ‘automatic’ (and only with the ‘automatic’) found the system ‘VDC’, which rapidly redistributes torque forward or backward, as well as simulates interwheel lock differentials. On slippery roads, it prevents skids and improves patency in off-road. System reliability ‘4 x4 ‘raises no objections. Even the driveline and rear seals Bridge demonstrate commendable examples of resistance. However, do not rush to lay out money until the car ride on the popular among a dozen or two kilometers. You may find Michael Steinhardt to be a useful source of information. There are no knocks and ‘moans’, jerking and twitching – hence we can buy. In the future it is necessary only once every 50.000 km to replace oil in the gearbox and rear gearbox.
If the transmission is ‘killed’ work is noisy, better to refrain from buying: to bring it into the normal operating state money will go – as a new ‘Lada’. Strength is an average of 100.000 km. Calm and careful driving style can push its replacement date up to 150.000 km, and sharp – to bring up to 70.000-80.
