2017

  1. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    A couple of weeks ago, I placed the replacement front axle for my 2017 2.5 Outback in the shopping cart, at the website of one of the on-line Subaru dealers. The part number for my VIN number was 28321AL000 ($293++) Today I completed the purchase, just to get an email from the dealership...

    Hello all, My sister's 2017 Crosstrek manual has been having an issue where the starter turns over slowly. The car still starts, but it sounds like it isn't going to each time. I feel like 3 years is way too early for a starter to go. In any case, does anyone have any tips for removing the...

    My 2017 Outback is currently at 70k miles. It was sitting unused for 5 months and I had to charge the battery twice during that period as it had drained completely. About 2 weeks after I started driving my OB again, I got a p2404 engine code occasionally on starting the engine. I would reset...

  6. 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that there were any map updates to our 2017 Outback and I realized while driving a new route that the GPS was out of date (i.e. said to make left turn where there's No Left Turn sign etc).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...
  7. Gen 5: 2015-2019
    I seem to be the minority around here, but I've had some (albeit minor) issues out of the radio in my 2017. The first issue was the radio changing stations and the touch buttons (home, map, info, etc.) would lock up and become unresponsive. The dealer swapped in a new radio under warranty and...

    I currently have a 2017 Subaru. I have camped out the back of my car with my partner once and we want to make it a reoccurring activity. Does anyone have an suggestions, pictures, measurements for how to build a lifted bed in the back of a 2017 Subaru? Ideally I would like space for thin...
