Lightbulb 2014+ Subaru Outback 3.6R LTD Changes & Improvements......

Looking for a local grocery-getter / knock-around car and curious if the 2014+ models had most if not all the issues worked out that the 2010-13 Outback were experiencing. Has the suspension improved? Navigation any better? Any other areas that may have been improved?

You'll have to pry my frameless windows from my cold dead hands.

2014 isn't much different from 2013 as 2014 was the last model year for that body style. 2015-2017 have an all new infotainment system and suspension compared to the 2014 as 2015 was the first year of the new style.

Thank you. I was not aware of that site. I appreciate the help.

My apologies. I was going off what my wife relayed to me. I was referring to the current design which received the new infotainment and face lift.
Thank you.

In that case it doesn't look terrible anymore.

Agreed. I owned a 2011 or 2012 3.6r LTD and was not in love with it's looks from jump street.

I own both 4 and 5 and unless your a Subaru fan it's hard to tell one from the other. In fact, there are some styling parts (not many) that I like better on 4 then 5

I prefer the front of the newest version over the previous. It looks more proportionate and none of that silver trim paint.
