    My 2020 Outback Touring XT has been having battery issues, car often needs a jump. Dealer replaced battery and a few months later same problem. Dealer states they have not seen this problem, and sees no draw on battery. Anyone else experience this, is it a known issue.

    2nd time in 2 months my car battery has died unexpectedly. First time had driven the car about 30 (highway) miles, parked the car. 2 min later went to move it and was completely dead. Battery was replaced (by dealership in Jan 2020). Had towed to dealership - they kept all week. Ran...
  3. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    2016 Outback here...last week the dealership did their 60k maintenance and changed the positive battery terminal. 3 days later the fob won't unlock the car, turns out the battery is dead. I used the slide-out key to unlock the door to pop the hood, jumped the car and it started. I make a note...

    I had bought my car new last year, and this is the second time the battery is dead. Road-side came in and suggested I need a new battery. I called subaru customer care and they are agreeing to reimburse the battery. Having battery issues in the past, I am looking for the best battery money can...

    I have 2019 0utback Premium and I love it except...well, that battery drain issue. It happened a year ago suddenly requiring a jump start every day so took it to the closest dealer (3.5 hours away). Service tech said nothing was wrong with it and to not leave any electronics on when I wasn't...
  6. Gen 2: 2000-2004
    Hi! So, I purchased a used 2002 Subaru Outback from a private seller this past November (2020). Everything has been pretty good except the battery and brake light would come on together randomly (sitting, driving whatever). Sometimes they stay on, sometimes they flicker and go off. No real...
  7. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    I've been seeing the reports here of OB batteries dying untimely deaths and kind of shrugged them off thinking that my Subie was above that sort of thing. Well, you guessed it, I got hit too. Yesterday my 2018 Touring 3.6R seemed a bit sluggish to turn over in the morning for the post office...
  8. Gen 5: 2015-2019
    A few hours ago my husband and I purchased a used Subaru 2018 Outback Limited 2.5i through shift.com. 16k miles. We were in love! White with cream interior and wood paneling. Yes. We’ve both lived in dense urban environments and it’s been a decade since we’ve had our own car. Test driving...
  9. Irreconcilable Differences
    I was very excited to buy my first Subaru and had very high hopes for it it currently has 14 thousand miles it's a 2018 which I got at the end of 2018. I bought it new and honestly I'm very disappointed. Today it is at the dealership the battery has died a few times over the last few weeks AAA...
  10. Gen 6: 2020-Future
    Anyone having trouble with a bad battery or am I just unlucky? After about 1,000 miles the battery on my 2020 OB Ltd went completely dead. Local dealership tested the battery out and said it was defective. Adding insult to injury, dealership claims there are no spare batteries in my local area...

    MEMBER 2006 SUBARU OUTBACK 2.5L 4WD AUTOMATIC 120,000 MILES Hello, Earlier today I cleaned out my car and accidentally hit the parking lights button. Now my battery is dead. However, when I click to parking light off a buzzing (or very fast clicking) starts in the dash to the right of the...
