I have to agree that I am one of those who have driven subaru for 15 years and am disapointed in my 40,000 dollar purchase. It wiggles all over the place and does not stay on track. 6,000 miles and had my second alignment? wonder why?
I, also, bought a 2012 Outback because of the ride (like a Buick), the engine, the roominess, and its looks. After owning it three months and driving it on the highway, I traded it in. It wanders and constantly requires steering correction. Also, the steering is very heavy and numb....not at all agile or responsive. After one scary incident on an interstate at night with traffic, I traded it in. Seeing as there is a website dedicated to this problem, along with many similar reports of this, I can't understand how so many people love their Outback. They ARE popular, so I don't know.
