    My gen 5 Outback had an OEM hitch installed. It was a 1 1/4“ hitch. I just got one put on my 2021 Outback and was told it’s a 1 1/4” but it’s not. It’s a 2” hitch! Honestly, it’s a lot more robust, but doesn’t the dealer know what they’re installing? Also, I wish they had informed me that it’d...

    Hey guys! I am trying to add a hitch to a 2021. The main use for the hitch would be for a bike rack. I don't think I’ll be towing anything. One big question I have is would I want a hidden hitch to give me the most clearance for off-roading or lower for protection? What hitch would you guys...

    I’m a mountain biker and just got a 2020 Outback. I’m looking for suggestions on rear bike carriers from other bikers with Outbacks. One of my concerns is how a rear carrier reacts with or interferes with the Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and Rear Automatic Braking (RAB). Does anyone have...

    Hi all. I have a 5G Outback (2018) with the Subaru official trailer hitch (1.25" receiver). I bought a used Thule bike rack that goes in the hitch and the locking pin holes don't line up. See the photos. Does anyone know - does Subaru put the locking pin holes in a nonstandard location...

    Hi! I would love some advice from the braintrust here who have experience with carrying bikes on the Outback. I have a Gen 5 Touring and we are a family of 5. I'd love to be able to carry 5 full size bikes (2 road, 3 hybrid) and ideally some extra storage on top. There are likely a few...
