2019 Subaru Outback Limited 2.5i (Tungsten)
I bought my white 2018 OB 2.5i Limited 5 months ago (just 1,250 miles on it now), with 3 time typical dead battery issue. Was considering downsizing to a 2019 Forester (to make the wife happy). However, since I found out that Foresters will have standard auto start/stop, I've decided to keep my OB and just get a 800 CCA battery. I absolutely *hate* the idea the start/stop feature on the '19 Forester. From what I understand, it cannot be turned off permanently. Shame on you, Subaru! I realize that start/stop has been around for awhile on various makes. I wonder if that will be standard on all cars for 2019... Other than the dead battery issue, HU issues, and auto open rear hatch, I really enjoy the OB. Rides great, good gas mileage. Still trying to get used to the key FOB and push button start. This is my 3rd Subaru (2013 Legacy Premium to 2014 Legacy Limited to '18 Outback).
