  1. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Good morning everyone I'm currently working on a 2011 2.5 N/A outback sport I replaced the engine (knocking) with a rebuilt long block. (2006-2012 was described in post when purchasing) Swapped everything over no problem. Now the engine does not line up at all been fighting the engine mounts for...
  2. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    My 2011 Subaru Outback 3.6r Limited is currently around 85k miles. I'm looking for the Warranty and Maintenance Booklet that the Legacy & Outback 2011 Owner Manual mentions in 11-3. I want to try to do the maintenance myself but I don't know the maintenance schedule. Can anyone direct me to a...
  3. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    It seems that all the O2 sensor discussions I can find on the forums are for older models or 2.5l engines. I have a 2011 Outback 3.6R with ~ 160k miles on it. The CEL, traction control, cruise control, and brake warning lights all come on together at random intervals. Sometimes it can go for...

    Hi all. So I have an I phone 11 and I’m trying to connect to the portable player of the OB. I can connect the phone for calling just fine. I can’t however connect the phone for playing music. Does anyone know what I need to do? Side note I used to have it connected to an Android phone so I know...
  5. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    The driver's side window won't work on my 2011 Outback. Fuses look fine. What is interesting is that when I try to put it down the engine RPM dips slightly, like it does with any of the other windows if you try to put them up or down when they are already all the way up or down. To me that means...
  6. Audio, Video, Security, & Navigation
    I just bought my 2011 OB and it appears to have a 2012 radio model in it. For the LIFE of me I cannot figure out how to adjust the bass/treble level, and whoever owned this car last turned the bass up super high. I’m not really good with these kind of things and would appreciate any help! This...
  7. Parts, Accessories, & Performance
    Hi! I recently just had maintenance done on my 2011 Outback and replaced some gaskets. Since then, I have noticed that when I reverse, and then shift into drive, when I turn my wheel the car vibrates a little bit. Is this cause for concern or just the car getting used to the new gaskets maybe...
  8. Gen 4: 2010-2014
    Hi everyone, So happy to have discovered this forum. Ever since driving my grandpa's outback when I was a kid I've wanted to have my own. The 2005 acura MDX I've been driving since starting college three years ago is finally on it's last legs and I've decided to finally let it go. I'm hoping...
  9. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    I have a 2011 Outback 2.5L with 240,000 miles, original owner, and no real problems to date other than a replacement of the CVT transmission 3 years ago (dealer covered it at 100%). About a month ago, I started occasionally hearing a little gurgling behind the dash board, which I have read is...
  10. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    New owner of a 2011 Outback here. Had Lemonsquad do the inspection. Inspector reported minor surface rust, so I bought the car because there were no other problems. Today I (naively, maybe) showed the inspection photos to a buddy who works on cars, and he's worried about the rust. Reading...
  11. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Help!! my 2011 outback with 156,000 miles has a knocking/pinging noise that comes and goes. It has been back for a while, I have been running premium gas in it for a while now. It has helped it go away some, though it still comes and goes. Some days it’s there, some days it’s not. I use Lucas...
  12. Oil, Oil Filters, and Fuel Discussion
    Hello has anyone replaced their camshaft sensor? I unscrewed the two bolts but can’t get the bracket off. I’ve heard it can seize up to where it sits. I took a flat head screw driver behind it with a mallet and am afraid to break it. Any suggestions...please

    Someone is offering me a 2011 automatic Outback with 200k miles on it for $3000. It has a new timing belt, water pump, radiator, and battery. Should I get it?
  14. Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    I have been trying to educate myself about all the aspects of wheel and tires, but I have been getting so much conflicting information that I am about to rip some hair out, and at my age I don't have much to spare. Can I run some options by y'all and get some feedback? My current ride is a...
