Up-Date Major Defect
By Bill on


2011 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


Up-date to my 7/28 review. Subaru came out with a TSB for the steering wheel shake finally which included new front and rear bushings, new steering wheel with dampener, new mount for the trans and a bunch of other parts. Car was at dealer for 2 days for the repair. It drives a lot better now without the shake however the steering wheel vibrates above 70 mph., kind of like operating a power tool. Called dealer and told him the problem and was told nothing more they can do. Car rides well, plenty of power, comfortable, and fun to drive as long as you stay below 70. Envy those of you without the shake or vibration. For me, my first and last Subaru.

Best Features

Power, comfort, decent mpg avg. 24 mpg for first 1,000 miles.

Worst Features

Subaru should get their heads out of their butts and get this problem fixed and quit selling known faulty cars until it is.
