Question about 2005 Subaru Outback
I drive a Subaru 2005 Outback. Last week had it serviced at the dealership for the 90,000 mile service. It currently has 86,000 on it. Yesterday I was 5 blocks away from my home and it all of a sudden felt like I had a flat tire? I pulled over and NO flat tire? However, as soon as I put it into park, it began to roll back. The emergency brake had to stop it. I was able to drive it back to my home (5 blocks) without a problem. Could this problem be something besides my transmission?

Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

I would want to see that for myself, or get a second opinion. That really sounds suspicious since they claimed there was rust in a box that was mostly filled with oil. And I can't see any logic in paying a lot of money to fix a transmission that is working. Why don't you take it to another shop and ask them to change the transmission oil, and to save the old oil for you to look at. It would be even better to change the oil yourself. Don't tell the dealer what you are doing. The best thing would be to just pick up your car, as is. If it is a scam, they could put some stuff in the transmission if you give them time to do it. In fact, they may have already done that. I can't say it's a scam, but it sounds like it could be if you haven't done anything that would have broken off teeth in the transmission. And if teeth are broken off you should be able to hear it while accelerating at low speed in each gear.
