    I'm looking to get a newer Outback (in the 2013 model right now). Ive always had Thule racks on my Outbacks (and Legacy prior) to carry mountain bikes, kayaks, SUP's etc. Even with the 2013 I find the distance, front the back, between the cross bar rails to be very close, especially when tying...

    Hi All, I’ve attached a picture of this beast of a tandem sit-on-top kayak loaded on my ‘22 OB. I know the kayak needed to come forward about 6 inches and have front and back anchors, but we were literally going 1 1/2 miles so speeds were around 30 mph. It worked fine. We used Thule Dockglides...

  7. Member Mishaps
    My dad was trying to be helpful and when stowing the crossbars into the side rails he unscrewed the bolt that is meant to stay in place and pivot on. When we tried to screw the bolt back in the nut(?) that receives the bolt had shifted so the bolt doesn’t grab anything. Does anyone know what’s...

    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...

    Hi All, New 2022 Onyx XT owner here. This is my family's 3rd Subaru. Sold a '16 VW GTI SE manual for the Subie for it fit the family's needs better. I used to use a Thule Dockglide on the VW to get a tandem loaded on the VW base carrier bars. The kayak weighs about 85 pounds so it's not...

    The cross bars on out 2018 factory installed roof rack are rusted in place. The dealer can't even get them to budge. I am wondering: 1) if this is a known problem and how folks have dealt with it. 2) whether I can somehow add an after market roof rack. The factory installed rack does not...

    been researching some options outside of the Prinsu roof rack. It appears Rough Country is developing a roof rack taht integrates with existing rails. I personally have a distaste for the factory plastic roof rack. Today I stumbled on this - SUBARU OUTBACK ROOF RACK 6TH GEN | Spider Roof Rack...

    Greetings! In this post I am going to lay out my general roadmap for what I have planned for my 2015 OB and use this map to ask questions and for advice. Eventually, once I start receiving parts I will add pretty pictures to the thread. I am going to lay it out in a list format and these...

    Greetings, fellow 4th gen owners. Today, a new minor but annoying issue popped up with my 2012. I noticed a metallic rattle coming from the rear of the roof every time I hit an expansion gap or bump. When I got home, I checked the roof rack, and sure enough, the left rear crossbar latch has some...

    Having a **** of a time figuring out whether the factory rack on my 3.6 2013 Outback will support the 110 lb. roof top tent I just ordered. Dealer says "no problem"- rep claims he has put a cargo rack up there with at leas that much weight and worked well. Subaru of America can't give a specific...

    Our tailgate area of our 2012 Outback was getting water in it. I think this has been going on for years, but it wasn't very noticeable because here in SLC we only get snow in the winter (very little rain in summer, etc). I kept thinking the musty smell was just from leftover water on our boots...
