  1. Where are the remaining 2019 Outbacks....

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    I'm surprised there are any new '19's left. In my area they were closing out at $6-8k+ off msrp. One dealer had $9k off 3.6's.
  2. Thinking about ordering with a port-installed hitch, but stressed about bumper cut

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    I don't remember ever seeing a report of a poorly cut bumper from the port or a dealer. Seems like a lot of noise for nothing. IMO.
  3. Thinking about ordering with a port-installed hitch, but stressed about bumper cut

    +1 You answered your own question. The installers at the port are very good at what they do because they do a lot of them. There are only so many things that can be installed at the port. Repetition is the best experience. You might be able to do it better than the dealer installer who does one...
  4. Stop/Start with 2.4T in 2020 OB?

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    You can also start the engine by turning the steering wheel an inch or so left or right enough to put pressure on the wheels without the wheels turning
  5. FOB key shell for 2019 Outback

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    Another reason to get keyless start. 2 fobs with valet cut keys and mobile programming service in your driveway is about $800. :cool: .
  6. Forrester vs Outback

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    You can get a new 2019 Forester Premium on the new global platform for the same $28k as the loaner OB. That would include the full compliment of safety features. Completely different from previous year Foresters. Way way better visibility in the Forester. Simple climate controls and clear...
  7. Remote Start via Starlink

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    @Mom2N3 No fob needed. Cell phone and Starlink subscription required. Cost for Starlink with our 2019 Forester at purchase was about $380 for seven years. Less than the cost of add on remote start.
  8. Love the CVT, hate the "fake shifting"

  9. Love the CVT, hate the "fake shifting"

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    Go figure, When I bought a 2011 Limited in late 2010 people around here were railing about the rubber band CVT with no shift points. Wasn't natural and took away from the driving experience. So SOA added shift points. Now it degrades the drivability .
  10. I pulled the trigger on the big Tyger roof basket. Pics soon

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    The Orange accents are perfect for the new Forester Sport. "Like it was made for it"
  11. I planned on a body-color windshield banner above Eyesight. Subaru says nay

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    I've seen two people who have put black on the hood of new Foresters with no issues. One was full black the other was wide down the center. Both looked nice. SubaruForester.org
  12. Mirror Caps for 2019 Outback

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    Mirror caps are cheap. My '17's were $7ea. They only come in a kind of flat black. Paint them, dip them or toss them you're only out $15.

  14. [newbie] Ruling out easy-to-fix no-start causes

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    +1. At least it's consistent. Intermittent would be brutal. Edit: Ahh, look at that I hit 4000 posts. I think I've run out of things to say.
  15. Aftermarket Oil Filler Cap

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    Subaru made a blue SPT machined one for the 2.5 OB at least up to 2017. I took it off and put it on my new 2019 Foz Sport.
  16. 2019 Subaru Outback rated recovery points. Anyone make any?

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    The recovery point hardware in the link would require most of the front bumper to be removed to take advantage of multi point/angle use. Very nice but way beyond my needs. I'll stick with an eye bolt through the bumper.
  17. I picked up mine today. Any gotchas I should look for?

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    Check tire pressure. Dealers have a habit of not airing down from 40+psi shipping pressure to proper road pressure. Enjoy your new OB. And welcome aboard.
  18. Quick Detach Aftermarket Subwoofer Connection

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    Nice and clean. Great out of the way install.
  19. Gold Plus Extended Warranty for 2016 OB

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    First up warranty does not apply to service. I'm a bit confused. You purchased at 14K and you're due for service at 18k? Do you mean oil change? There is no 18K service needed in the manual. Did you buy from a dealer? If so ask them to show you the 18k service in the manual. Sounds like a dealer...
