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
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?
