  1. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    I have a 2017 Outback with same issue, all my lights on the dash lit up with a P1449 code. The fix is to replace a $55.00 filter drain with a 10mm socket for the vapor on the fuel tank. My part # was 42072AL00A. My filter was water logged and the hose also. This is located over the rear...
  2. Tire Discussion
    Thoughts on whether I should get winter tires, please!!! Also, suggestions on what type/brand. We are planning a cross-country (New England to San Diego and back) trip this winter. While there's some areas that can be snowy, the rest seems likely to be clear or only rainy. Our ride: 2017...
  3. Tire Discussion
    Hi everyone, I am driving a 2017 Outback 2.5L Limited, and planning to buy winter tires on 17" Alloy rim. I am doing this analysis for the past couple of days and have not been able to figure out if it would make any positive or negative difference if I install 235/60R17 tires instead of 225...
  4. Outback Shopping
    Like to ask the forum here. In the market for a newer vehicle. Looking at the Subaru Outback. However I was now seeing the Forester as almost a similar vehicle as well. What are the pro's and con's between the 2021 and up models of Outback and Forester? Right now the vehicle i am on is a 2005...

    Does anyone know the maximum diameter you can run on a 2017 Outback with stock suspension? I recently ordered tires online and was sent the wrong model tire. I was sent Maxxis Razr AT-811 in 225/65R17 and the total outer diameter is 28.7 inches. Anything I've seen that is considered stock is...

    I have a 2017 outback (Australian, so right hand drive). Next to the left front seat heating button are 2 small buttons, one above the other one with a + the other a -. I can't see any reference to them in the manual. Anyone know what they do?

    I have a 2017 Outback without nav and without HK. I'd like to replace the HU with an aftermarket one to allow the use of Android Auto. However, I would also like to keep the factory backup camera. Is there a solution to do so? Crutchfield says there wiring harnesses to keep backup camera and...

    Hello everyone, I stumbled upon here to ask a question after purchasing my 2017 Outback Limited. First Subaru I've ever owned, owned a Jeep Patriot prior and a Volkswagen Jetta. I was even looking at a Jeep Wrangler, but due to questionable MPG and my commute weekly, it wasn't the right fit. I...

    Got a 2017 Outback and lately, when I shut the car off and open the door I get the dinging chime like the car thinks it's still running. Occasionally when I turn the engine off the rear hatch will open with no input from me. It only opens a couple of inches. Wondering if disconnecting the...

    About a month ago, I began hearing a periodic loud metallic clack-clack-clack when making a left u-turn, which sounded as if it were tire rotation dependent. It sounded as if it came from the front end. After a couple of weeks I could hear it randomly when going from a stand still, and very...

    Sad but true: 40K miles of “just regular driving” and we’re getting CVT slippage from every stop; bad vibration and hopping if starting up a hill. Anybody experiencing the same?
  12. Forum Rules, New Member Information & Intro.
    Hi all I wanted to share some info on my Outback for the fellow Subaru owners here. I recently picked up a 17’ 2.5i with 90k. I put Amsoil in her (Motor & differentials) I also put Wheel’s & Tires & roof rack on. 245/65/17 (stock size 225 was on national back order) I just got the chance to...

    I just bought a Certified 2017 Outback Limited. So glad to be back in an Outback. I had two chevy volts for last 6 years and I was never able to go anywhere substantial with it - always renting to go camping or skiing, etc. Anyway, one of the things about the infotainment system was that...

    My 2017 Outback has a keyless start or "smart" keyfob. I'd like a duplicate fob, but only need the lock/unlock options for an automation project that will ensure the car is locked every night (it is parked on the street). There's a significant difference in price between the smart and standard...
  16. Audio, Video, Security, & Navigation
    For some reason we never received emails or notifications that there were any map updates to our 2017 Outback and I realized while driving a new route that the GPS was out of date (i.e. said to make left turn where there's No Left Turn sign etc). Turns out we're out of the original three-year...

  18. Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hi there! What are the biggest tires I can get on stock suspension and wheels without any rubbing. I'm currently running on the stock Bridgestone Duelers 225/65R17 and I really like the BFGoodrich KO2 tires but I'm not sure which size to get. Any advice/recommendations?
