2 different engines.Interesting. I tried to do a search with 2013 and got an error message so I could not check. Someone know if 2.5 engines are better in 2013-2014 ? I am looking for an outback on those years. Thanks
I am looking for an outback with the FB25B engine. Does the problems with the CVT were major issues?2 different engines.
in US spec outback and legacy years.
2010-12 US spec are EJ253, some have had problems with these last of the EJ253,...but not many,....they do have CVT problems though, extended warranty to 100,000 miles)
2013-14 US spec are FB25B. (extended recall on oil consumption, and CVT problems, ...extended to just 100,000 miles)
impreza and forester have different year choices for the switchover.
if you want something with zero problems: 2016-present,...as 2015 had CVT issues, ...unless they were already fixed with 2016 type parts.
major enough some are getting whole remans from the factory with 2016 parts inside.I am looking for an outback with the FB25B engine. Does the problems with the CVT were major issues?
Thanks for your help
