Gen 4 – P0971 Error Code – 2013 Subaru Outback CTV Issue




Our Subaru Outback 2013 model has now developed a CVT issue this week (code P0971 – transfer solenoid circuit high). The error code has been cleared by our mechanic and I spoke to a CVT transmission specialist, and he advised me that it affects the all-wheel drive system only. He also told me it is okay to drive the car.

Occasionally we experience a “bit of a thump from the back” when driving off but that is about it. Has anyone else experienced this issue with the CVT?

Although the specialist has said it is okay to drive the car, how long before this develops into a bigger problem? Is the error code like to come back on again in the meantime?

I am looking at having the solenoid replaced but I have to wait until the specialist can clear some of his backlog hopefully in the next week or so.
