This bulletin applies to 2015-2016 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid (HV) models. A reprogramming file is available to optimize the transmission control module. These files will address isolated customer concerns of a “shock” or “bump” felt during low-speed braking during engine warm-up after a cold soak.

Reprogram the TCM using the SSM4 following the normal FlashWrite procedure. When reprogramming is complete, turn the ignition ON and wait at least 15 seconds before moving the selector out of Park to activate the newly installed TCM update.
