Question Transmission Overheat???

I am a salesman in Oregon for Suby and I have a customer that says he read in a 'review' that the transmissions overheat on the Tribeca. I have no idea if this was in regards to overheating while towing?

Since Suby offers a transmission cooler for such towing situations... I would think is just dummies who are trying to pull too heavy a load without paying for the tranny cooler.

My parents have a Tribeca with 10K miles and have had no issues ~ and when I get in it I drive it HARD!

Any thoughts? Anyone had any issues?

Me too. I asked them to bring a copy in when they purchase today... if it's still a worry then they can buy the oil cooler for the tow package, eh?

for AWD cars, u should never leave any wheels on the ground while towing...and if the whole car is on deck while towing, i dont think it would have anythign to do with tranny....the guy must be dump or something tried to tow it like FWD or RWD..however..wat was the problem made him to tow his B9 ???

I was taking this as the guy was towing something with the Tribeca... like a trailer... and manual Subarus can be towed as long as all the wheels are on the ground. only automatic Subarus can not be towed with any wheels on the ground.

I have 20 inch wheels on mine and they do weight more but I have never had any problems even driving for 3 hours at a time.
