2018 XT CVT
I may be crazy, but I’m on my 2nd 2019 Forester (long story) and it’s doing something I don’t recall the 1st one doing. When you coast or apply the brakes, but don’t come to a complete stop, and then press on the accelerator again there is a pronounced feeling of the torque converter locking (or unlocking, not sure) as well as a slight reduction in the rpms for a second or two. Ive noticed it most at speeds between 15-30 mph. I believe the torque converter unlocks below ~15 so if you press the accelerator while going below 15 you don’t feel it lock. If you press the accelerator while going between ~15-30 mph there is a really rough feeling when the TC locks. Is this something to be worried about or is this normal? I’m worried it will prematurely kill the $8,000 CVT.
