    Greetings all! I have a '13 OB with the 2.5. I've had a recurring CEL for the last 2 years - "left bank too lean". The following have been replaced: catalytic converter, O2 sensors, MAF, spark plus. Throttle body and air filter cleaned. What the heck else can it be? The car has 185k on it - I...

    I'm looking at buying a used outback probably a gen 4 or 5. I want to replace the head unit with an aftermarket media receiver to have carplay. Crutchfield.com says if it has a nav screen the dash will have to be modified to fit the reviever. Can y'all shed some light on this for me? How big of...
  3. Gen 5: 2015-2019
    Long story short, my 2013 Subi got hit in the left front fender/wheel well area by someone running a red light at high speeds. After 4+ weeks waiting for an estimate, my beauty was totaled, only barely. Anyway, had a friend of the family who was willing to sell me his 2019 Outback for whatever...

    2013 Subaru Outback Premier for parts or engine rebuilding. There is a broken piston ring and will not turn over - not sure if related. It looks like it was piston #4 that broke. Last year I rebuilt the long block after a broken exhaust seal on the right cylinder head. I didn't take apart the...

    My sister just bought a 13 OB 6cyl 5k miles ago (3months) for $13k @ 120k in MA. At college, in philly the car began to shake on start up with coolant leaking out the front driver's side in a thin stream splatter near the radiator cap (pics below). The car overheated on the way to the nearest...

    So I'm thinking of lowering my 2018 outback and I've seen these: Subaru Outback 15-19 EZII Series Coilovers - MR-CDK-SOB15-EZII What I'm wondering about is how many inches it lowers it. The photo doesn't seem to have any change so I'm kind of confused. If there is a better option for lowering...

    Hi Forum. Recently I had trouble opening the hatch on my MY11 OB and had to crawl inside to open via the emergency release. That gave me the idea to add a release button on the inside to make it easier to exit during camping. Took me about an hour to install. The procedure is straight forward...

    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...

    Hello everyone. I wanted to know what lighting setup you are currently running on your Gen 4 Outback. 1- What setup are you running for the low beam H7 headlight? Are you using an LED setup, or halogen or other? If so which kit? How did you get it to properly fit given the outback clip setup...

    I got a (new to me) Gen 4 Outback 3.6R that needed a bit of love. I changed the battery the other day, and unfortunately the car won't start. Some details: I had a memory saver hooked up, but I think it didn't work as intended, and probably didn't maintain power to the OBD port. I'm an idiot...

    Let me start by saying that when I bought my '14 Outback in 2015 I loved the idea of having a "full meal deal" roof rack as part of the package. That feeling lasted about 6 months, then reality set in. The OEM unit is a Jack of All Trades, Master of None. The finish on mine started to fade...
  12. Forum Rules, New Member Information & Intro.
    Hello all! Just wanted to introduce myself. I live in the Dayton area and I purchased a used 2012 Outback 2.5 Premium in May after my insurance totaled my (just paid off) 2015 Nissan Versa. It has 275,000 miles on it but it still looks pretty good. I've recently encountered an issue with a...
  13. Outback Unpaved
    Hi guys, I have a 2011 Outback 3.6R the I have modded pretty heavily over the past few months. I have an LP 2" lift, King springs, Bilstein B6 struts, and Falken Wildpeak AT3 tires. I'm pretty confident my car won't have any issues but my main concern is getting a flat when i'm out in the...

    Hey everyone, long-time scroller here. I'm looking for some help -- I recently had an ADF lift kit installed on my Gen 4 2014 2.5i Limited Outback. I also replaced all four struts (KYB Excel-G). The ADF kit is 1 ½" in the front and 1 ⅞" in the rear. When I brought it home and was inspecting...

    I know the body style changed up in 15 but it didn’t look like it changed up too much. I just got my 14 after getting a good deal on it I was planning on getting a 15 and already picked out parts for it. For the people wondering what parts I was looking to get the iron man 2 inch lift and...
  17. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    It seems that all the O2 sensor discussions I can find on the forums are for older models or 2.5l engines. I have a 2011 Outback 3.6R with ~ 160k miles on it. The CEL, traction control, cruise control, and brake warning lights all come on together at random intervals. Sometimes it can go for...
  18. Gen 4: 2010-2014
    I just drove from ny to vancouver with my OB way over loaded with crap. I'm pretty sure my suspension is going to be shot when I finish unpacking everything. I'm trying to decide if I should replace everything that wore out with OEM parts or put on some coilovers and dropping it an inch or 2...

    We have all four of the OEM floor mats from our 2011 Outback Limited. They are black (or maybe a really dark gray). In the picture below they look gray but it's the lighting, they are really much darker. Or my old eyes are worn out. The mats were only used for about two weeks after we bought...
