Have the vehicle inspected by your SUBARU dealer.

The drivers control center differential allows you to freely change the degree of limitation of the differential action (limited slip differential (LSD) torque) of your vehicles center differential.

By using the center differential control switch, you can set an initial LSD torque to match the road surface conditions, driving conditions and your driving style.

1) LSD torque

1) LSD torque
2) Traction torque
3) Initial LSD torque (maximum)
4) Initial LSD torque (minimum)
A) Initial LSD torque (adjustable)
B) Mechanical LSD torque

The drivers control center differential has an auto mode and a manual mode. In the auto mode, the system automatically adjusts the initial LSD torque. In the manual mode, you can change to the desired mode manually by using the center differential control switch.

NOTE
If you rapidly depress and release the accelerator pedal while driving at low speed, you may hear a knocking sound from the vicinity of the center differential and rear differential. This sound occurs because of the structure of the center differential. It does not indicate a problem.
