I've had two Subarus in the past five years and had issues with vibration in the tires. With both cars, the service team said they couldn't replicate the vibration or noise that I heard during test drives. In both cases, it was wheel bearings going bad but the first time we hadn't pushed the issue and ended up having to replace rotors, brakes and tires. This time, at 11 months after purchase, my husband insisted that they ride with him while he drove at 55 mph in order for them to hear the noise. He learned that their test drives had only been in the parking lot then around the block and the mechanic told him that Subaru has always had issues with wheel bearings so they had several in stock. I would recommend that you ask them to check the wheel bearings whenever you experience vibration.Report it

I really like my OB - but the seats are not perfect. They're too short - they could extend an additional 1-2" toward the pedals or include an adjustment (similar to lumbar) that would achieve this. I'm not extra tall (5'10") and I feel like the area below my knees is hanging there. Not a major gripe - but it's there.Report it
