Hello all,

Around March 2012, I realized my decision to purchase a Legacy 2.5i was silly and I should've went with a LGT right from the bat. So...I found and purchased a Certified Pre-Owned 2008 LGT 5EAT from Competition Subaru (don't judge!) with 60k miles on it. Only mods performed was bringing it to Stage 1 with a Cobb AP and a ProSport Halo Boost Gauge.

I have been noticing a harsh upshift from 2nd to 3rd gear. The shift gets more harsh as more throttle is applied. Called up North Coast Subaru to schedule an appointment to take a look at it since I have the 6yr - 100k powertrain warranty. I was hoping it would be as simple as a reflash TCU / Relearn until the service guy told me my car's original transmission was replaced with a remanufactured transmission.

There was no mention of a transmission replacement in the carfax report!! The only item listed was "Automatic Transmission Checked". Such BS! Shouldn't all warranty work be documented on the carfax reports?

Please don't flame me for depending on carfax reports...

I'm scheduled to bring the car to the dealer on May 30th and I'm debating if should leave the car with the Stage 1 AP Map or flash it back to stock.
