Archived from groups: alt>autos>subaru (more info?)

Per my Subaru dealer, my 2004 Outback(4 cyl auto trans) with less
than 3,000 miles on it has torque bind. They say that replacing the
transfer case will fix this.

I thought torque bind only showed up on cars that were
10 years or so old with a lot of wear.

Can anyone tell me how, why a brand new car would have
torque bind? Will replacing the transfer case fix it?
For how long?

Or is this an indication of a bigger problem with this
particular car?

The throttle was also sticking.

Thanks for any info!

Frank

Thanks for the link, I've been doing some research also at
usmb.net. Most of the discussions seem to concern improper
tire size and older cars. My 1990 Legacy that I had for 12+
years had some signs of torque bind.

I just never expected it on a brand new car. Absolutely
nothing is different as far as maintenance, driving, etc.
between the 1990 and this 2004. I've got to assume
there was something wrong with the car when it was
delivered. I don't see how it can be from wear or
the wrong size tires(they are the factory installed
originals) or anything during the short time I've
had the car.

Has anyone else ever had an Outback with torque bind
when it was delivered? What could the factory have
messed up?

If torque bind can happen that fast just through daily
driving, then I can't afford to have a Subaru anymore.
I can't get this repaired every 3,000 miles. That's
what I'm trying to find out, can everyday driving/turning
cause this in less than 3,000 miles?
