  1. Invisibility cloaking a dashcam in the smash-and-grab capital of the world. Feasibility of repurposing an Eyesight shell in a 2013 w/o it?

    Gen 4: 2010-2014
    San Francisco is a wonderful place to live by many metrics, but it's the last place you want to leave a purse on the front seat of your car. Not a purse, handful of loose change, phone charger, or even smelly gym clothes (at least if it looks like you might be hiding something else). Yet like...
  2. RAB applying brakes while driving

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    So we just got a 2017 3.6R and we're still getting used to all the safety features. Today my wife was driving the car on the highway and she wound up with an aggressive tailgater behind her. She said the car kept applying the brakes whenever he would get too close. Is the RAB supposed to...
  3. 2020 Outback Onyx XT Eyesight/Power steering

    Problems & Maintenance
    A couple months ago, I was off-roading on a pretty easy trail and the Eyesight on my 2020 Outback Onyx XT turned off. Within minutes, the power steering also turned off. I pulled over and restarted the car and the issue seemed to have resolved itself. Last month, while off-roading on a moderate...
  4. 2013 Outback Random Eyesight fault?

    Electrical & Electronics
    First time posting, long time lurker. I just acquired a 2013 Outback 2.5i Limited w/ Eyesight. Here’s my issue: Randomly the light show will go off (cel, adaptive cruise, lane assist, and brake light), and a yellow Eyesight message that just says check manual. When this happens, I cannot use...
  5. Disabled Eyesight Cancels Auto Start

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    I'm wondering if anyone has had a similar experience. Three times over the past two days Eyesight has decided to disable while I'm sitting at an intersection waiting for the light. The bigger problem is that when Eyesight becomes disabled while the car is in Auto Stop mode, the car beeps loudly...
  6. eyesight forward collision avoidance

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    I was wondering whether anyone has any experiences with the FCAS. I was hoping it would be of some use in Stop and Go traffic; but Eyesight does not react except to tell me the 'car in front has moved'. I understand it's supposed to react in a collision situation. However, my experience is, it...

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    I recently purchased a CPO 2017 Subaru Outback 2.5l Limited with Eyesight On the rare occasions I have driven at NIGHT I have found that Eyesight gives me the "Temporary Stop Indicator" (White Eyesight with the Slash) when driving and this temporary indication stays on and doesn't seem to want...

    Hello All, Anyone experienced the "Eye sight disabled check manual" message.
  9. Can Cruise Control be used without eyesight?

    Audio, Video, Security, & Navigation
    I have a 2016 OB Ltd and suddenly while getting ready for a road trip, the yellow “EyeSight Off check manual” warning light came on. In reading the manual, I was under the impression that non-EyeSight assisted cruise could be activated if EyeSight is not operating. I have not been able to get...
  10. MY2016 EyeSight Button Function Issue

    Problems & Maintenance
    Hi there, Got a MY2016 3.6R with about 65K miles down and I am having issues with my cruise control / eyesight +/- buttons, particularly the -/pull down set cruise control/reduce speed function. It is not always equally bad, but often it will only 9 out of 10 pull downs accept the minus 5MPH...
  11. Eyesight Issues - 2017 Touring

    Problems & Maintenance
    So I've been experiencing some weird, intermittent issues with my 2017 Touring Eyesight system...namely that it changes the follow distance setting or turns off lane keep assist setting with a press of the set button. It will also occasionally take 3-4 presses of the set button to activate...
  12. Eyesight longevity: Disabling Eyesight 10 years from now

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    I keep cars for 10+ years. I am contemplating getting a 2019 Outback with Eyesight. However, 10 years from now, I can imagine a situation where Eyesight will have electrical issues. Instead of getting it fixed right away, I would like the option of disabling/powering off the system. Do you see...
