Unhappy Problem with AT - 2 gears, problems shifting.

Car is 1995 Legacy GT with 2.0 TT EJ20 (car is Japan model as I'm in Japan)

Only have 1st and 2nd (whether in D or directly in 1 or 2)
Trans will only shift into 2nd after I've reached 40kph, and immediately slips back to first upon going under 40.
I also have to let off the gas briefly to cause the shift.
Once in 2nd, car will NOT shift to lower gear.

Any help is appreciated. I ran some searches, and the most beneficial info I found was concerning a brake band possibly being out of adjustment.
I have no desire to spend money at the dealership diagnosing it as I'll be here for less than a year and it's a $1k car, so I won't be able to recoup any loss I incur. While I'm mechanically experienced, I have nearly no experience with Subarus.
I mainly want this car to run right so I can take my daughters where we need to go without burning through tankers of gas and revving out the engine, as this car is WAY more comfy than my 180sx.
