    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...

    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...

    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...
