93 Subaru Impreza automatic transmission will not shift from 1st to 2nd when cold. Will shift fine when engine warms up. What could be causing this? Fluid level is fine and no leaks.

Let's see...lemon law definitely no - that only applies to New cars and even then it's usually less than 12 months old or 12,000 miles.
I would go back to the dealer that sold it to you, or take it to an indy mechanic you trust. The 2010s are out so that car is well past the warranty. Some used cars come with a 30 day warranty from the dealer that sold it, though, if that's the case.
#50 of 89 Probable Automatic Transmission Issue
Oct 09, 2009 (6:33 am)
I have a 2002 Impresa WRX auto (75,000 miles) with a probable transmission problem. Check engine light on and hesitation between second and third gear. Anyone have a similar experience or know whether there is any likelihood of not needing to replace the transmission?
I have regularly served the car and the mechanic that looked at the car so far said the transmission fluid didn't look too bad. That mechanic was not comfortable with the car and suggested taking it to a dealer for a diagnostic. I will be doing that unless I can locate a recommended local mechanic before then - Cleveland / Akron area.

What were the codes stored in the system? Did the mechanic hook it up to a reader?

I called the mechanic who didn't write down the code, but told me that it was a "Second gear incorrect ratio"
Looking online, I found out that this is probably a ECU P0732 - Gear 2 Incorrect Ratio
Calling the mechanic I usually use in Brooklyn know who's Subaru, he thought it was just a speed senor. Mechanic in Ohio wanted to replace the transmission based on the same info.

I've heard it could be surface rust and a good reverse burn out will wear right through it.
Try this at your own risk, but it sounds fun.
If you wanted to replace the clutch anyway, you have little to lose.

At between 2600 and 3000 rpms, highway speed, moderate to long (although not necessarily steep) grades, it feels like the transmission is shuddering -- most of the time, I can goose and then back off the throttle, and the shudder goes away. I've seen lots of posts about this kind of symptom online, but not any really good suggestions of remedies.
Has anyone seen this before -- if so what was the solution? This is likely to be the deciding factor between keeping and junking it.
