  1. 2017 Outback Rear Trailing Link Failure

    Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    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...
  2. Gen 5 2017 3.6 Touring = CVT Slipping at 40K

    Problems & Maintenance
    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?

  5. Airplay on 2017 Subaru Outback Limited

    Gen 5: 2015-2019

  6. Smart Keyfob vs Standard Keyfob

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    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...
  7. Outback 2017 (Gen 2) Latest Maps update is 2018.Q3??!?!?

    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that there were any map updates to our 2017 Outback and I realized while driving a new route that the GPS was out of date (i.e. said to make left turn where there's No Left Turn sign etc).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...

  9. 2017 OB biggest tires with stock suspension and wheels?

    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?
