2017 Outback 2.5i Premium, Mr118 17" Michelin Defender T+H 225/65r17
I will be trading in my 2017 outback for a Toyota 4runner this week. There are many things I liked about the outback, comfort, MPG, the ease of changing the oil, drives like a sports car and parts are cheap. The deal killer for me is the way the outback acts in the cold weather. I dont like the marbles in the can sound on a cold start and the way the CVT acts. I do understand this all has to do with emissions and advancing the timing to warm the vehicle faster, I still dont like it. I noticed Subaru changed the roof rack on the 2019 so the outback does not look like a hearse (hated that too). I know that my 4runner will be a pain to maintain, but at least I can maintain it and I can already feel my testosterone levels coming back...lol. Thanks to the people that have answered my question on this site. I wish you all good luck with your subies.
