Maybe the experts here can answer a question for which the dealership has no answer:
On my 2012 2.5i N/A Legacy, the gear position readout in the dash has a split personality. When one moves the stick into reverse, the 'R' shows up immediately in the readout. However, for any of the 6 forward gears, the number only shows up a few moments after the shift. First gear does not show up until the car is moving. Why? Is this somehow RPM-related? What about the reverse gear? Just curious. Any help will be appreciated.
