I bought a 99 forester back in November and have had my fair share of problems. For one, and the biggest, it's the transmission. At first, there was just some minor slippage and jerking in between gears. I was thinking "Ok the car has 136k so it wont be perfect" Pretty soon, the car was banging into 2nd and hesitating at 3rd where it would rev high then shift. And then it started with the infamous delay when going into drive. Reverse, no problem, drive, big problem. The delay started subtly and then resulted into now having to give it gas to go into gear. The car also smokes sometimes like it might be burning oil but when I rev it, it goes away. To top it off, I've been smelling coolant and seeing some faint smoke coming from under my hood so I think there might be a leak. I'm really starting to doubt Subaru but would still like some insight to what any of these problems might be and how to fix them. Thx.
