Caveat Emptor!

Memory seat is a joke! Interior so noisy the big bucks radio is a waste as you can't hear it at normal volume levels. Transmission lags and stalls randomly in low gear at critical merging times. Factory say this is normal, dealer says engineering defect, I say a serious safety hazard, wife says she won't ride in it for fear of being T-Boned!

Great car at a great price.

If this car had an electronic tailgate lift and an automatic climate-control system, it would be a dream car for my family of 2 adults and 3 large dogs.

Recall Notices

2014 Subaru Outback (8/1/2013)

Campaign Number: 13V336000
Manufacturer: Subaru of America, Inc.
Description: Subaru of America is recalling certain model year 2014 Legacy 3.6R and Outback 3.6R and 2013 Tribeca vehicles manufactured June 12, 2013, through June 28, 2013 and equipped with 5-speed automatic transmissions. In the affected vehicles, the parking rod may come loose inside the automatic transmission.
Defect: As a result of the parking rod detaching, the transmission may not be able to be moved from the "park" position preventing the vehicle from being moved or driven. Furthermore, even with the transmission shifted into the 'park' position, the parking mechanism may not engage, and the vehicle may roll away while in the "park" position, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Action: Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will replace the transmission, free of charge. The recall began during August 2013. Owners may contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783. Subaru's recall number is WQJ-46.
