  1. Non-cpo starlink activation???

    General Discussions
    I just bought a '16 2.5i Limited Outback with the navi and everything. My biggest question is, would I get the "free" trial for the Starlink suite, or would I have to pay for it from the get go? I bought it yesterday (9-12-20) and no one can seem to answer the question as it would seem that I...

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    A few hours ago my husband and I purchased a used Subaru 2018 Outback Limited 2.5i through 16k miles. We were in love! White with cream interior and wood paneling. Yes. We’ve both lived in dense urban environments and it’s been a decade since we’ve had our own car. Test driving...

    Gen 5: 2015-2019

It's similar, but slightly different, than the email in the "2019 Starlink Map Update" thread from a few months ago (2019 Starlink Map Update). Hence this new thread ...

  6. Gen 5 2015 2.5l water pump replacement

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    Hit 100k and going to do a lot of maintenance on it. Serpentine belt, plugs/wires, and most importantly the water pump/thermostat. Nothing is coming up and from the one picture I saw this gen has the pump mounted so you do not have to remove the cover. Is this correct? Looks like I can just...

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    Battery just died. Won‘t start. Original equipment battery. It’s in my garage, so no immediate sense of urgency. However, it is Saturday afternoon, and I’m leaving town (hopefully in my Subaru) on Monday. Local Subaru service is closed. I have a 48 month, 60,000 mile Subaru manufactuer...
