I am a first time Subaru owner and I just bought a 2012 subaru outback 2.5i premium cvt (6000 miles). I absolutely love the vehicle, but tonight i experienced a strong gas smell in the cabin. I thought it might be from outside maybe another car, but it continued. Since I have been home tonight I have been reading that this has been a common problem with Subaru vehicles in the past. The descriptions I have been reading about are exactly what is happening with my car! Most of the posts I have read were from 2001 to 2006 models. Just wondering if anyone with a new outback has had this problem and has it been fixed. I am heading to the dealership in the morning and i will give an update as soon as I can. Funny thing is I was going to go to the dealership this weekend to trade my other vehicle for another Subaru. I think i will be waiting on that now. My wife wanted another Honda or Toyota and I talked her into this. I hope I did not make a mistake.
