What Does Your Subaru WRX Transmission Do?

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Subaru WRX transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.
