CR has the 17 model as more reliable .The 19 has more user friendly apps for my wife to use and of course safety is stellar on both models. Can anyone please compare the 2 for me ? I promise to make a decision on my own.(With my wife's help of course).

I have had both and never had any real issues with either. Id get the lower mileage and /or newest one.

well then price and overall condition would be a consideration. 19 may have had some refinements but nothing you ll know about if driving the 17. Check on the CVT warranty and issues on the 17, just a thought. A few years extended the warranty(on the trans) to 100K cause they had troubles.
BRRRRRRRR,,,,,,Where are you? We've been pretty snow free in Lower Slower Delaware this year.
That s upstate NY, 29 inch storm this week.
condition and maintenance consider. at 50 K miles, brakes, trans fluid change, front and rear diff fluid change, battery, tires etc.. I just did all that and coolant flush too.
I have a '17 3.6R Touring and I'd definitely say the '19. Although a preferred exterior/interior color might sway me the other way, I'm never a big fan of the ivory leather.
I wasn't an ivory fan at first but the way they broke it up with all the black, dash, console, door panels etc, I now like it.
when will the Oper give us some details on the 2?
We drove the 19' today much smoother with a nice info system. It's certified with another 2 year 100k(it has 50) powertrain warranty. Clean inside and out .Clean carfax. Small concern that's the only warranty, once we drive it off the lot it's on us. Decision time. WWYD?
I d have it checked out by someone qualified (if your not sure). check your self to see if everything works. Nothing should be wet with oil etc, although they d clean that up I d assume. Unfortunately thats the price of buying a used car. Any service history? Again without knowing the price it s hard to say WWID.
it s at the very top of the price range (Kelly/nada) for a excellent condition limited Outback with 50K.
Can you see how long they ve had it?
You should be able to negotiate a little.
also listed before was some of the services it will need soon if not already done.
Tires and battery you can look at yourself.
I love my 2019 Limited.
BTW, it had a fuel pump recall and a TSB on the steering spring (Minor thing).
Good luck with your decision. Let us know if anything we can do.
BTW, that 100K powertrian warranty is nice.
correct but you got that big warranty they don t!!
well all the certified cars I ve bought came with it in writing . so I say it s not certified but I don t know what they claim.
is it a Subaru dealer?

so I know that if you have owned a Subaru before you can call Subaru of America and request the $500 coupon.
I d be guessing to say that s only if you have owned before but I d ask.
I always got the coupon separately and then slapped that down after we negotiated the final price.
so it says in the add to :see retailer for details: on the certified preowned advertisement .on the $500.
so if you ve owned one I d tell them you want the additional $500, if you call Subaru I think they can e mail the coupon.
then how is it listed on the certified preowned advertisement?
only applies to new car purchase
