Hi, Traded in a 2007 Camry Hybrid (they gave me my target price after some discussion). 2013 2.5i Outback Premium (auto CVT) with all weather package and package 1A (bumper guard/alloy wheel lock kit/splash guards/auto dim mirror with compass) for $25,500 before TTL. Very happy with the car and buying experience (Galles & Davis Subaru in Albuquerque)
Does anyone have a solution for this problem? This topic never got a complete answer. I have the same issue on my 2007 Outback. I'm about 800 miles short of 100k. Torque converter?? --- "ok, so i was driving my new-used 2007 Subaru outback 2.5i a good deal this past weekend and tried to localize whatever is going on with it a bit more.

I’ve driven a 1997 legacy outback for 7 years and loved it, barely no issues, but recently lost it to flood. In the market to buy a new Outback, but have gotten stuck on whether I should buy a $6000 2001 model @123,000 miles, or if it’s worth paying $12,000 for a newer 2007 model @ 104,000 miles. I can afford the 2007 model only if it will save me repair ... Read More
Dear all, I have a 2007 Subaru Outback 2.5XT Limited (auto), bought new, now with 60K miles. Recently started hearing a buzzing/clanking sound at idle (at higher revs it's masked by engine noise), sounds like a belt(?). Took it to a dealer: the dealer mechanic does not hear this extra noise (?) - although it's very proniunced... the dealer service/repair estimates: slightly over 1000 for 60K service plus a list of ... Read More
i also have a 2007 outback with 68000 miles with the same noise,took it to dealer,he test drove it and told me the noise was from inside transmission, told me i need a new transmission,$3890,called subaru and they are going to give me $1500 towards repair. still think 68000 miles is not enought to cause damage, bought car new but did not buy extended warrranty,
subhash, I just received a Flyer from my Service Dealer - not the one I purchased our 2010 Legacy 2.5i CPO from. They are offering a $2500 premium over the Book on the Trade in toward a new 2012 Subaru, Subaru incentives is 1.9% financing for 5 years (says on certain Models)....Sounds like they are starting to entertain deals. Happy Shopping. Do your research here at Edmunds and other sites. Are ... Read More
I'm wondering the same thing. For me, I'd need to save at least $2000 to get me to buy a 2012 instead of waiting for a 2013. So far, I don't see that in my area. I don't think that Subaru has offered rebates in the past few years. In past purchases (a 2005, and a 2001 model year Outback and a 2007 Forester), I saved a lot by buying the ... Read More
Yes, same thing happened to my 2011 subaru liberty, cracking noise always come when I drive or turn at slow speed in bumpy road. The technician told me can not fix (its a lie of course, because no other new car like that). except the symmetrical AWD, I don't think Subaru has more advantages than the other cars. Won't consider subaru again. disappointing. my friend drives a 2007 subaru and crash ... Read More
Wes gets amazing wear life on his brakes. We've been doing subie brakes in NY/NJ for the past 10 years. On average you get 30-40k miles out of the pads and 75-90k out of the rotors. -mike Subaru Guru and Track Instructor
Well, the steepest part of the depreciation curve is the first few year for any vehicle. The most expensive smell in the world is new car smell. ;) Having said that, the Lexus will be out of warranty soon. Are you shopping CPO? Keep in mind if both last 8 years, you'll have the Subie for 8 years, the Lexus for only 5.
It is hard to make decisions about whether to buy a new 2010 Subaru Outback (2.5i premium) or a used 2007 Lexus RX350 (with around 38000 mileages). Both cars are under a similar price range. I have heard a 3-5 year old used car depreciates less than a new car. Comparing the resale value, which car is better? Anyone has any experience or suggestion? Much appreciated!
Wendell - While that car may have been reconstructed after that crash (Subaru is a very popular brand up here!), it was not by me - the crash ended my 6.5 year ownership of the car at 220,651 miles, if I recall correctly. I wanted to keep it and use the drivetrain to build an AWD buggy of some sort, but my wife would have none of it. So, in the ... Read More

You can't compare the residual % of today to the one in your current lease. You accepted the higher residual price to help your monthly payments. The purchase price in your lease is what they will hang out for. You can offer them less but who knows.....
Wayne, NJ Subaru Dealer - According to lease - gross capitalized cost $24,000. According to ALG, Subaru residual percentage is 50% = $12,000. Should residual be around $12,000 or so? Please advise.
I think it's a fair price actually, especially since you're familiar with the previous owner! ;)
Residuals are always a problem one way or the other. Its fairly rare for the purchase to work in your favor - boosting residual was a known way to lower lease pricing when they were considered good for volume by manufacturers. Look at the residuals $ and % in play now - typically quite a bit lower. A large number of leases have residuals that are unrealistic in todays market, the ... Read More
A 36 month lease - 12,000 mile lease will come to an end 1-31-10. Finance company wants $15,235 residual, plus tax, plus DMV fees to buy the car. Car has 32,000 miles. Is it a good deal? I think the residual is too high. Please comment.
Hi jbaudet, I know your message is from 2007 but you are the only one I could find who may be having a similar problem. Does/did your car feel like it had a vibration/slip when turning left or right? This is what my car feels like and I am trying to see if I have a transmission issue or if this common to Subaru's. It does not give me this problem ... Read More
So i think the last cheap thing i can do to fix whatever is happening with my subaru is change the spark plugs. My friend and i are going to do it and have found the correct plugs. Does anyone know what the torque should be for them? again, it's a 2007 subaru outback 2.5i. Thanks
The Acura MDX that I have been driving for the past three years had Xenon lights. In my new vehicle, I specifically avoided them. I found that the Xenon did not provide better visibility than say my 2005 Subaru Outback. My main complaint with the Xenon is the reflectivity factor in snow... it is unbearable. I feel like most of the winter, I drove around with only my parking lights on ... Read More

Elliot... you have provided some great insights while I have been researching the 2010 Outback, and I greatly appreciate your assistance! I hear your concerns with the Nav... we have spent time debating this before and is one of the major reasons that I have made the decision to purchase a 2010 Volvo V50 R Design over the 2010 Outback 3.6R. Below are a few more reasons for my decision... 1. ... Read More
Background info: I bought a 2007 Subaru outback 2.5i with automatic with about 78,000 miles on it on 9/9/09. the test drive was perfect (though i was excited so i may have missed something) but later that same night, my car was dead so it had to be started using jumper cables and it happened again the next morning. I though i had a dud, but it turns out that stupid ... Read More
I am considering the purchase of another Outback. I owned a 2005 3.0R VDC for several years but went back to a SUV in 2007. Although I loved the driving experience of the OB, I was having trouble fitting adults in the back seat of my 2005. I test drove both engine models over the weekend. Having primarily driven luxury SUV's in recent years, my gas pedal foot and ears could ... Read More
I hear you on the Nav! As a high-mileage driver, I have found it most economical to switch cars every few years. I believe that factory installed Navigation was actually more widely available back in early 2007 than it is today. I am also driving an Acura, a 2007 MDX Sport. I love the Nav system and especially the integrated traffic. Subaru is really behind on the technology. Even my Nissan ... Read More
The industry appears to have taken a step back in the past few years... I sense fewer, not more, vehicles with factory Navigation available today. This is opposite from the trends elsewhere in the world. You cannot buy a Ford Focus or Opel Astra in Europe without even the most basic navigation system. As someone who has experienced both portable (with my 2005 Subaru and today during travel) as well as ... Read More
You can use the Edmunds used car appraiser here: http://www.edmunds.com/subaru/outback/2007/index.html Consider buying a used car out of state. New England is very tough on cars. Rust from the heavy salt use combined with damaged suspensions from the worst roads in the US make for very difficult used car shopping. My wife and I are originally from Quincy and Taunton, respectively but have lived in MD for 29 years. The quality of ... Read More
Hello, I'm new to the Subaru world and am looking to buy a 2007 Subaru Outback 2.5i from a Subaru dealer. I live in Boston. What should I expect to pay for this car with "typical" miles on it? Thanks, radicalkat
I'd like to reopen the discussion similar to one on this board from a few years ago - it's really a similar situation and I'm stuck between a few choices...I would love if someone could weigh in!

We currently own a 2009 Outback (love it) and (lease) at 2007 Chevy Impala. The lease on the Impala is up in about 6 months so we have started shopping around to get some ideas. We bought the Outback about 7 months ago and it was our first ever Subaru...and we love it! The solid feel, quiet ride and of course the AWD is great. Anyway, my wife and I are ... Read More
We have a 2007 Outback with 25,000 miles. Starting at 10,000 miles, the rear driver side weatherstripping came detached (about six inches of it where it bends in direction). Since then, we've had it fixed three times for the same problem. It was finally replaced completely two days ago, and lo and behold today we see it is coming apart again. Is this a common problem on Subarus, and if not, ... Read More
I have a 2007 OBW with the same problem. It has a 2.5 manual transmission and at high loads in 4th and 5th it sounds like the engine has something loose internally. I also own a 2004 2.5 impreza outback sport with a loose manifold and that sound is completely different. When I took it to the dealer, since its still under warranty, they told me they couldn't find anything wrong ... Read More
I would check out the Kelley Blue TRADE IN VALUE for that specific model with all of it's options. KBB says for a 2007 Subaru Outback 2.5i Wagon 4D automatic with 44,000 miles in excellent condition $13,200 (with no additional options selected). I never pay more than TRADE IN VALUE for any used car regardless of condition. Dealers are demanding only wholesale (auction) prices for your trade in so the actual ... Read More
Have the oxygen sensors been replaced? If not, I suspect one or both may be giving a "false positive" on the catalytic converter. I assume you are getting the P0420 code, "cat below threshold." That code is generated when the oxygen differential between the fore and aft sensors is not great enough. As a result, the problem could be due to an inefficient cat, or it could be due to the ...

This is my last post on this site for my (former) 2000 Outback. Traded her in last weekend for a 2007 Suzuki SX4. Don't get me wrong, I was really sad to see her go but here's what happened in a nutshell: bought her 4 years ago with 54K for $13K. Within 6 months the trans went, had a feud with Subaru NA and got a new trans installed for $1K. ... Read More
Not sure why the prices in this region are so competitive. I know there are something like 7 dealerships near my zip code, and that can't hurt. Also, we have dealers in MD, but I'm just a couple of exist from VA, so those compete for my business, too. Fitz is not necessarily the cheapest, either, but they are straight up and honest, and the process is painless. I'd rather give ... Read More
It is wise to drive a little, to save a lot. Two houses, both costing $250,000. One, in the city, has 1500 sq ft. The other, eight miles out, has 2100 sq. ft. and a bigger lot. Which one is the bargain? Well, it depends on if you have kids or not, hate the city congestion or not. Value shopping and night life or not. In California, the Tri-State area of ... Read More
I am inclined to think that, in terms of an unwillingness to negotiate prices, my "tail" of the woods is likely the least consumer-friendly place on the continent. That is fine by me though, because if I cannot find a decent price on a car here, I jump at the opportunity to pay $500 for a flight to the lower 48, pay $3000-4000 less for the same car there, then have ...

I'd be happy to help you out, gmudude. Subaru's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 Outback Limited with Navigation and 15,000 miles per year are .00200 and 52%, respectively.

Well, I think that's a matter of opinion. We owned a 2007 Outback and traded it in (see earlier post), and driveability (which can mean different things to different people) was IMO a big part of that.
The legroom in the 2010 Subaru is supposed to be 5" more than last years. I bought a 2007 Outback and it's tight back there on anything other than city drives. With the extra room, the Subaru will be the clear winner. There's no comparison between the 2 when it comes to driveability.
I think the dealer was full of it. There's no way that's normal. Half the vehicles in the ski mountain parking lot are Subarus, are they kidding? There would be hundreds of them stranded if that were normal.
- It has issues starting, especially at altitude. One time my wife took our son skiing at about 9500 feet and it wouldn't start. She eventually got it going with use of the gas pedal, and when we called the dealer, they said this is common and it is a quirk of a Subaru. My wife has been reluctant to take the car into the mountains ever since. I would file ... Read More
Understood. And I considered the new Foresters, which I like design-wise much better than the older, boxy versions. But at this point my wife is done with Subarus. She lost confidence in the brand, and I have my orders. :)
Four inches doesn't sound like a lot, but in terms of rear leg room it is. It would solve our problem, for instance - at least with the room for the kids. But too late for us to wait, and all the "quirkiness" of the Subaru isn't cute to us.
Just noticed this thread and thought I would chime in, as it fits my situation. We bought a 2007 Outback "iwagon" two years ago. We have two kids under 9, and we wanted a safe, reliable vehicle with better mileage than an SUV that could go in the snow in the winter. The Outback is safe. And it goes in the snow. But we aren't sure about reliability, and it can ... Read More
I didn't mean allegedly in a pejorative sense. It just seems to me that not as many Edmunds posters actually buy from Fitzgerald as quote their prices. Any thoughts as to why the Maryland market is so competitive to the consumer's benefit? The weather, maybe? Most of the year you're fine w/o AWD, but then you get those 4-5 ice/snow storms? Are domestics more of a presence there than in the ... Read More
I am now looking to replace my 2007 Honda CRV which has been an exceptionally flawless car with a new Subaru Forester or Outback. The reason being is that I need to haul stuff and two large dogs in my travels, not people. Every time the CRV has been redesigned it has become more people friendly and less a utility vehicle. I need length, not height, and the fold and then ... Read More
Your "allegedly" comment cracked me up. :D We bought our '02 Legacy there, the prices are for real. They do have a $99 processing fee they disclose up front. The process was quite painless, so I will very likely go there again. My family has bought 4 cars from that dealership. -juice
The relevance of Fitzgerald's numbers depends on what's happening in *your* market. Here in New York, there are tons of competing Subaru dealers, but there are also tons of people buying Subarus (and I suspect the same is true in Denver). The dealers are much firmer on price -- they can afford to send you on down the road and wait for the next customer. Dealers here simply won't sell you ... Read More
I've had both of those types of rattles. The 'cargo' rattle probably comes from the plastic covers, next to the rear lights, just under the tail gate. You can paste some weather proofing strip (spongy/rubbery), or just stuff some clothing first between the gate and those plastics, to prove they are causing the rattles. For the 'sunroof' rattle, there is actually a repair kit issued by Subaru. I've had my 2007 ... Read More
Have a 2007 Subaru Outback -- will a 1999 Pet Barrier fit? I know a lot of the new stuff only goes back to 2005, but thought I'd ask before I drive a ways to pick this thing up. We don't have a sunroof and the '99 barrier was for no sunroof, so was just curious how they hook up and if it would fit. THX
Was your ac ever fixed? I have a 2007 Outback and the dealership where I got it is disgraceful. My ac cycles on and off and I have to keep it on 3 out of 4 to stay cool.

We have a 2007 Outback and we don't have the cross-bars on the roof rack. How far back can I go to find a used set? 2005? 2003? 2000?

If I understand your numbers correctly, I think the Fitzmall price on that car would be around $22,000. Fitzmall is always a good standard, IMHO.
Demand is strong in CO so people often pay higher prices there. With that in mind, I think you did pretty well. Congrats. -juice
Jill, Congrats on your new car! May it bring you many happy trouble free miles :) John

Hi Shabe1, I bought a 2005 Subaru Outback Limited Wagon with automatic and sport shift transmission in July 2007 with about 26,000 miles. I've put 12,000 miles on it.

The transmission also slips sometimes going from third to second (around a corner for example). I took it to a reputable transmission shop. ... Read More

Good point. This is from page 2-4 of the 2007 Legacy/Outback owner's manual: The security indicator light deters potential thieves by indicating that the vehicle is equipped with an immobilizer system.

If the security indicator light does not flash, the immobilizer ... Read More

Hi, I have a 2007 Turbo Outback and I have had the brakes looked at by the dealer twice because of the grinding noise I am getting.

I did actually ask a dealer about re-upholstering the seats in leather--glad to hear they aren't as hot as some have predicted. But would the leather itself solve the cushion problem? Would a piece of foam from the GT fit my seat and make a difference? What about a cushion from an ... Read More
The 08s got a face lift, but otherwise only minor differences. The Outback sedan is discontinued but sounds like you want a wagon anyway. Do you want a sport/cute or a capable wagon? That's the bottom line. RAV4 has more space, offers a V6 that runs on regular fuel, and even offers a 3rd row. They're all automatics now. The rear gate swings open the wrong way and blocks curb side ... Read More
Debating between Ouback 2007 or 2008 and Toyota RAV 4. Need to put 2 car seats in the back seat, live in snow country and will drive the car 80+ miles a day for work. I assme the Outack does better in snow, but having a hard time determining the real MPG difference and reliability/maintenance issues with each vehicle. Any opinions? Also, any major differences between Outback 2007 and 2008? Many ... Read More
Yes, SI-Drive and VDC are standard on the manual XT limited. (Hee hee... careful calling it a 5-speed, since the automatic has 5 speeds as well!) My dealer here in Seattle has 8 XT Ltds in stock w/manual tranny, by the way. You can use subaru.com to search inventory (by state, I believe). The 6-cyl has smooth, continuous power delivery, the turbo has more peaky power and delivers more gut-wrenching "oomph". ... Read More
Our follow-up: After breaking down in SC and having car towed to Subaru dealer in Savannah, car was diagnosed as having damaged differential and trans due to low differential fluid level. Subaru refused to cover under powertrain warranty (still in effect). They claimed mechanic must've drained fluid during most recent oil change (several days before break down). Took the issue to the mechanic, who said he would submit paperwork to his ... Read More
Hi boblenon. The lease program that you were quoted for the Outback that you are interested in looks about right to me. However, I suspect that you will be able to negotiate a more attractive selling price on this car by shopping around. Subaru is currently providing $1,000 to $1,500 lease cash on the Outback right now plus there is around a $1,500 spread between the Outback's full MSRP and its ... Read More
I just spent two weeks in and around Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and saw not a single Subaru. We rented three Hertz cars, all of which had five-speed manual transmissions: a Toyota Corolla, which Hertz classifies as an "exec limo"; a Fiat Palio 1.4 flexfuel, which failed; and a VW Polo 1.6 flexfuel, which we thought a better car than the other two. Most of the cars in Rio are very ... Read More
That sounds about right for the Subaru. Mine is at about 3200 or so in 5th at 70 mph on a 2007 Outback. No shifting is necessary unless I want to pass with reasonable quickness, but it sure sucks the gas down quickly above 60 mph. At 60, I can get near 28. At 70, it is more like 26.5.
