Outback 2017 jerking

Post by tbm1975 » Thu Jan 07, 2021 7:32 pm

Hey guys, my 2017 Outback is jerking when accelerating gently. It seems worse on an incline . When i slow down into a corner and accelerate coming out of it , it seems to happen, also accelerating gently from a stop. If i accelerate hard it doesnt seem to happen. I have had new filters, spark plugs etc. Has anyone else had this issue? I have a mat who mentioned a computer reset/update can quite often fix these issues. Sorry i know very little about cars and hopefully can get it into Subaru in the next few weeks

Sorry, late reply: Our Impreza was surging when we first got it in 2015, there was an ECU udpate they did at the first service that sorted it out.

The other thing worth considering, how many km's has this done? I'm seeing various cars with CV issues, the inner one wears and causes a vibration/shudder that's tricky to locate/confirm. Then there's all the usual culprits: leads/coils/plugs/fuel filters etc etc
