Hey Everyone!

I've been a Forester owner for a few years now and really enjoy spending time on and learning from the forester forum. My wife and I are planning on buying a newer Outback this year or very early next year. Thinking, 2016 or newer, not sure what generation those are.

I wanted to join the forum to peruse the knowledge threads on what to look for and look out for in certain years and also to check out the classifieds!

Looking forward to learning as much about Outbacks here as I've learned about Foresters on your sister site!

on this forum 2016 is gen5. as it does not include the 1990-94 legacys as outbacks.

2016s should be in showrooms in the fall of this year, as they return from lease.

(today all the subaru dealers seem to have is 2015s in quality, and their extended warranty problem 2010-15 transmissions.
and FB25B problem engines 2013-15...)

so waiting for 2016s to come off lease is a good idea.

what year is your forester.? = those should get a whole lot better on the global platform when they come into stock this year as 2019s.

Welcome! Just bought a 2018 3.6 OB touring and loving it. Had a Volvo 940 turbo wagon for 20 years and after 300k let it go. Only 1,184 on the OB so far and no off road experience with it yet but it handles winding coastal roads beautifully!
