    My AT Temp, Break and Vehicle Dynamic Control lights all come on when I place the car in reverse and drive. It seems to shift okay, but I took it to my independent mechanic. He said it through some codes for the transmission and he thought it probably needed the valve body replaced, but that...

    Howdy Gang, So I am about to take possession of a '19 OB w/130k miles but I know the owner and it has been all freeway. Vehicle is well taken care of, but only oil changes, tires, rear brakes and spark plugs (@110k) have been performed. No services to the CVT nor diffs at this time. I am...

    We just purchased out first Subaru! It is a 2019 Outback Limited with the additional tech package moon roof/navigation and package 2 with floor mats etc. So far we love it and we would like to take it down some trails here soon. Question regarding the CVT, i was looking in the forums and...

    Hello everyone. I drive a 2019 Outback Touring 3.6R I purchased new on 12/27/2018. I drive a lot of miles (45k-50k annually), so keeping up with my vehicle's maintenance, meaning fluids, is very important. I have my CVT serviced approximately every 50k miles, and recently had my dealer service...

    Someone from a Facebook group recommended I post in here.. Was driving home today and stopped at a stop sign. When I pulled off, heard a loud clunk and lost all power to the wheels. Pulled off the road and had it towed home. No obvious broken driveshafts and no fluid loss. Transmission has been...
  7. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Well I finally did it I got a subaru. I just got a 2011 outback and ran into a couple small issues. First one is the Christmas tree of lights flashing after driving for a while. Brake light cruise lights traction control light awd light. All of them I assume it’s the common issue of the valve...

    Just wondering if a used/broken 2012 cat is worth anything. Pulled it from a buddy's subaru, said I could keep it. Just wondering if it's worth anything besides scrap. Thank you.

    Hello, I am looking at purchasing a very high mileage 2011 Outback (2.5L 4 Cyl engine CVT) in Canada. No sunroon but only heated seats on the model. It has 360000 Kms (225000 miles) and the owner says it has been mostly highway miles. Asking price is CAD 4600$. These are the maintenance items...
  10. Gen 6: 2020-Future
    I tried to search to see if anyone else had experienced this issue, but didn't find anything. If this has been discussed before I would appreciate being pointed in that direction. So this is an odd one to try and describe. On two separate occasions I have started my 2020 XT like every other...

    I had posted in the forum a few weeks back about taking my 2013 2.5i outback with 196k miles on a cross country road trip, about 8,000 miles of driving. At the time the car's only known issue was the need for a new cat, which I replaced. When I brought the car in for a final trip check my...
  12. Extended Warranties - Questions & Price Shopping
    Hi Folks! I'm a new member that stumbled on this gem of a forum through doing some research on Outback CVT failure rates. My 2017 2.5L Outback, with 64K on the odometer, (edit: 40,000 miles) just blew it's front differential despite it having been serviced 2000KM prior. Subaru Canada denied...

  14. Gen 4: 2010-2014
    Hey all, My first post on this forum comes with bad terms and is looking for some sound advice. I bought my 2011 Subaru Outback 2.5L Limited in Dec. of 2016 at about 94,000 miles. It has been a great vehicle for the most part, but continues to have one nagging issue. I get anxious about my...
  15. Subaru Outback Versus The Competition
    Happened to read in Car & Driver that Honda is going to full-time simulated shifts in their new Civic, replacing the of/off operation like they had and we have. No real explanation why, but they did mention the older full-time variable was faster down the track. Perhaps that will be coming to...

    Hey gang, been driving my '22 Wilderness for about 45 days now and I just noticed something weird going on with the revs when braking and wanted see if anyone else is having similar experiences. My daily drive involves mostly single-lane roads w/ 45-50mph speed limits and stop lights every...
  17. Outback Shopping
    Like to ask the forum here. In the market for a newer vehicle. Looking at the Subaru Outback. However I was now seeing the Forester as almost a similar vehicle as well. What are the pro's and con's between the 2021 and up models of Outback and Forester? Right now the vehicle i am on is a 2005...
  18. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hello! I have been dealing with this issue for sometime now. When I get my Subaru Legacy 2015 3.6R up to around 70 mph, I start to notice a pulsating shudder that is not extreme but very noticeable and is very annoying on longer trips. I have brought my car in for this issue 5+ times and each...

    Hey guys, I blew a head gasket in my Outback so I grabbed another engine fairly cheap and dropped it in while I replaced the head.Long story short I didnt seat the torque converter fully and you can guess what happened from there , Im assuming I FUBAR'd the pump.The car actually drove great for...

    2018 3.6R 20,000 miles jerks pretty violently when approaching a stop even gently. Sometimes I take my foot of the accel and get hard engine breaking for no reason. Other times it coasts gently to a stop. No predicting it. After one of these events, it kind of jerks on take off switching hard...
