We got our new outback on 9/4. It was ordered on 7/23 and arrived at the dealer on 8/28.
Body Side Mouldings
Homelink Mirror with Compass
Rear Bumper Protector
I had pre-ordered the rear seat back protector and all weather mats on line cost almost half of ordering them with the car. We installed the rear seatback protector yesterday.. Took about 15 minuites (yep it's that easy)
Thusday the front two windows tinted for about $60. I had 30% tint put on those windows. That tint is legal in florida, (28% is the limit) don't know about other states. But it matches the rear almost perfectly where you have to really look to tell it's not the same shade. My guess is the rear factory tint is around 20-25. I think if someone put 25% on the fronts they would be darker than the rear because there is already a slight tint to the front windows. So if you want to match front and rear put 30% on there.
There are no rattles, no squeaks, no lurching, no check engine lights, no anything. Everything works like it should. I have not noticed the rear gate rubbing the tail-lens or touching--and I have looked several times. (however I have noticed that it has expanded in the sun but not touched). And its a VERY QUIET CAR! Don't know gas mileage yet since I have only put 175 miles on it.
Compaired to our other Outback with 180k miles in the driveway--it seems like a Lexus in compaison.. yep the sheet metal is thinner than the old one... of course all cars are like that now. The old one seems tougher. I don't think piling the grocery bags on the hood or roof is a good idea. The new outback is HUGE by compairson and takes up more room in the garage.
What a nice car...
