(creates a box of light for the image. but outside the boundry of the projector there is no image or light. when driving on a perfectly horizontal road the projector lights extend out let's say 250 yards +/-. but when the road undulates the headlight projcetion of the road ahead is cut off! it's like something shuts off the projected light ahead and the road becomes severly darkened. however, when i turn on my highbeams the entire road front and sides are adequately lit. i feel this could be a pontential safety issue, especially if someone driving in fog, heavy rain, or snow. how can you maintain a safe condition if your forward light is esentially cut off because of the limitation of the projcetor design of the headlight? i have expressed my concern to subaru customer service, but there's nothing they can do according to person i spoke to. i just want to go on record with my concerns. apparantly according to the subru mechanic i spoke to today, others have expressed similar complaints about the 2006 tribeca which has the same headlight set up. sincerely, ap gulla. *nm.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):4S4BP86C154.

Subaru Outback 2005 Exterior Lighting Headlights Review #10147777

SUBARU OUTBACK 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 23, 2005.SUBARU OUTBACK 2005, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING:HEADLIGHTS . i purchased my 05 subaru legacy outback in september 04. the passenger side low beam headlight went out in october 05 and i had a local mechanic replace it with the recommended replacement bulb. i noticed that now the right low beam is more angled down than previously, making visibility at night more limited than it was before the replacement. in december 05 the driver's side low beam headlight also expired and my father and i replaced it with the same compatible part. i noticed that night that the driver's side low beam was now only illuminating about 10 feet in front of the car (less than the right low beam now) and so i had to crane forward over the steering wheel to see the part of the road that was illuminated. my dad and i adjusted them as much as we could but there's really not much to adjust. now, when i drive at night i'm mostly relying on street lights and other environmental lighting to illuminate the road rather than my low beams because they really don't show you anything of the road more than 10-20 feet in front of you (fortunately i live in the city so it's pretty well illuminated at night). the only way to see the road safely if i'm in a poorly lit area is with the high beams now and judging from other posted complaints there's really nothing the dealer can do to adjust them. *nm.Mileage was 25000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2005 car safety problem was reported on Aug 17, 2007.SUBARU OUTBACK 2005, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . component: service brakes, brake pads, details: the brake pads on my 2005 subaru have warped (all 4) at 18,000 miles producing an uneven sensation as one is braking. it also increases the distance required to stop. after taking my subaru in for a brake inspection (at 20,000 miles) i was told that all 4 wheels needed new brake pads, (even though my front brakes have 60% braking efficiency & 70% on the rear brakes). my partner, who is a professional driver, is the sole driver of our subaru and is very rarely in stop-and-go traffic. on the few occasions when she is in heavy traffic she maintains extra distance between her vehicle and the vehicle in front of her to avoid having to use her brakes more then is absolutely necessary. neither one of us have ever had to replace the brake pads on a vehicle with mileage as low as 20,000 miles and both of us have lived in large cities all of our lives. i had a similar problem on a 2000 subaru forester. this is a definite safety issue. subaru, overall, makes reliable, responsive and safe vehicles but this issue needs to be dealt with before someone is seriously injured or killed. *jb.Mileage was 18000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 25, 2008.SUBARU OUTBACK 2005, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR . while driving on icy roads at speeds of 40 mph or more, the car sometimes "floats" to the side several inches. it feels different than fishtailing -- more like the car is being pushed by the wind. this occurs with no cross-wind, no acceleration, no cornering or braking, on flat straight icy roads while driving at a constant speed. the sideways slip is severe enough that you feel you may lose control and leave the road. the only fix is to slow down to 40 mph or less, while other cars are passing at 60 mph or more. after several occurrences, always on icy or slushy roads, i took the car to the subaru dealer, who performed an alignment. the report shows that the car had positive toe-in of 0.23 degrees (front left), 0.24 degrees (front right), 0.22 degrees (rear left) and 0.44 degrees (rear right). too much toe-in, i'm told, can cause excessive tire wear and can also cause poor handling on icy roads. please consider that complaints for both these issues may have a common cause. there are reports that toe-in increases over time with subaru outbacks, and that toe-in also increases when there is more weight in the back end of the car. the subaru outback dynamically shifts power to non-slipping wheels when one or more wheels loses traction, and apportions power 60/40 favoring the rear wheels. could these factors, along with excessive toe-in, create the kind of dangerous floating on icy roads that many outback owners have experienced? please, please investigate. *tr .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 71000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 24, 2009.SUBARU OUTBACK 2005, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR . i¿m a recent owner of a 2005 subaru outback xt with 58k miles and under certain adverse weather situations; the car¿s tracking/driving characteristics perform in a hazardous and potentially deadly manner. when traveling in snowy and or slushy conditions on paved roads, the car¿s rear tires move from side to side loosing directional stability (i.e. oversteer) with no provocation from the driver or outside influence. this occurs regardless of the load in the car (passengers/cargo), and under all driving situations (accelerating & coasting). the car has snow tires on all four wheels (nokian 225-55-17) that have less than 10k miles of use and are correctly inflated as instructed by the car¿s manufacture (30f/32r). initially, i thought the car might be out of rear alignment (toe), however after being inspected by the local subaru dealership and independent tire alignment shop, the car is within subaru¿s current specs for the model and tsb notice (5-36-07) from subaru of america. i drive 200 miles daily to and from work (pa/nj) for the last 11 years and in all weather conditions with zero accidents or mishaps. the purpose of buying a subaru was for the all weather capability advertised by the manufacturer. however, apparently i am not alone, as a recent search on line provided an outback forum dedicated to this car (2005-2009) which indicates this is an inherent problem with this group of cars by the numerous accounts from other owners with this particular characteristic. soa needs to step up and correct the obvious ¿engineered compromise¿ with a raised rear suspension, and modify the lower control arms in order to correct the rear end stepping out due to adverse road conditions and loads carried by owners under what would otherwise be normal operating parameters. *tr .Mileage was 58550 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2005 car safety problem was reported on Nov 28, 2005.SUBARU OUTBACK 2005, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . this complaint concerns the intermittent refusal of the cruise control on my 2005 subaru legacy outback to give up control of the engine when the cruise control handle is pulled down to the coast position and to cause an unexpected, dramatic increase in car speed when the intent is to disengage the cruise control and slow car speed (?the problem?). the problem has existed since purchasing my subaru as new in 2005. the problem has been intermittent, occurring "out-of-the-blue" and when least expected. on more than one occasion when i wanted to slow but not break the car by pulling the cruise control handle to the coast position, the cruise control would refuse to give up control of the engine and, in some instances, the engine would advance to greater speed, almost causing a collision with traffic i was following. in one test i conducted after almost slamming into the rear end of car being driven in front of me, not only did the cruise control not give up control of the engine when i pulled the cruise control lever to the coast position, the engine continued advancing from a speed of 65 mph to 80 mph during the entire time that i held the cruise control lever was in the coast position. the only was i was able stop the cruise control from controlling the engine was by breaking the car. the problem has occurred regularly and continuously on an intermittent basis since my purchase of the car on 5/14/2005 from lithia subaru in reno, nevada. although causes appear to differ, the problem is similar in nature to toyota cars experiencing unexpected speed increase due to defective accelerator pedals as now being described in the news media. *tr.Mileage was 500 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2005 car safety problem was reported on Jan 17, 2009.SUBARU OUTBACK 2005, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR . i have several times experienced what is known as “ghost walking” while driving my 2005 subaru outback 2.4i. i have driven under the same conditions with the car minimally loaded. only on the times that the car was loaded with more than 2 passengers and their belongings did i experience “ghost walk.” on those times i was driving my outback on snow or ice covered road. i was driving at a steady rate of speed with consistent pressure on the gas. the rear of the vehicle would begin to pitch back and forth as if being blown by a heavy wind. there was no wind on those occasions, or not sufficient to cause the to sway the way it did. it felt as though the rear of the vehicle was attempting to pass the front. i slowed down each time, even though the road surface conditions did not dictate it. i was passed by 2 wheel drive vehicles, because my car felt unstable and unsafe to drive. i have never experienced this while the car was lightly loaded under the same road conditions..Mileage was 37000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2005 car safety problem was reported on May 09, 2011.SUBARU OUTBACK 2005, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . at approximately 85,000 miles, the check engine light on our 2005 subaru outback xt went on and we took the vehicle in to our local repair shop to check the light and they recommended having the vehicle towed to our subaru dealer. the vehicle was towed in and the dealer service person called stating that timthe turbo had failed (along with the cv boot & alternator belt). i provided the information regarding our official subaru 100,000 mile gold plus "extended service contract" which we purchased for $1975. the service representative would not confirm whether or not these components would be covered under our service contract and then called me and said subaru denied the claim pending receipt of service records. my husband and my father have changed the oil, air filters and performed general service in combination with service by various service shops. my records are not complete and i expect that subaru will try to deny coverage of the turbo due to this. there are ample reports on subaru forums reporting the same failure and i feel that this problem is not due to owner negligence, but by faulty design. this type of failure should be the responsibility of the manufacturer and they should service the vehicle per the service contract without causing undue stress to the owner of the vehicle. *tr.Mileage was 85000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2005 car safety problem was reported on Jan 12, 2012.SUBARU OUTBACK 2005, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SUSPENSION . i have owned and driven this subaru since july 06 and have driven it through 5 northern illinois winters. today was our first snowfall this season and for the first time i have noticed that the car exhibits very "un-nerving" handling qualities in very light snow road conditions. something has changed to make me feel like i will loose control of the vehicle. the car feels like it wants to fishtail out of control at any speed over 30 mph. strange "wandering" best describes it.it feels like i'm driving in deep ruts of heavy road snow that wants to pull the car into the ruts but the road is barely covered. on two lane roads it feels like the car could easily cross the center line because of this odd steering feedback i feel on slick snow covered road conditions. i don't feel it in rain conditions. it has "never" felt like this before. the rear struts were replace last summer with oem struts. the car has never had an alignment but has always tracked down the road very straight. tire wear is even and tires have been rotated multiple times. tires are bridgestone turanza serenity with 66k and been through 3 winters before with no handling issue. once i noticed on this site that many outback owners are experiencing the same symptom, i knew i needed to get this posted in case of an accident. i'm now at least on record with my "handling concern complaint" and subaru of america can't say my concern was never addressed with the nhtsa. a car should never display the kind of handling issues that makes it feel unsafe to drive in light winter conditions. p.s. i took my son's honda crv with 198 k for a test drive in the same conditions today,on the same roads and found its handling very predictable. what is going on with these outbacks ? *tr.Mileage was 162516 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 28, 2009.SUBARU OUTBACK 2005, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SUSPENSION . i reside in the sierra nevada mountains in california and experience snowy/icy driving conditions regularly throughout the winter. the outback was purchased for its performance in these conditions and is equipped with blizzak studless snow tires. on several occasions, in both ca and co, while driving on packed snow at approximately 40 mph, the rear end began to fishtale out of control. this situation continued to worsen until the speed was reduced to below 30 mph. i have spoken to the dealer and of course, "they have never heard of such an event" and did not have any idea as to what may have caused this condition nor how to correct. there are too many reports of this identical out of control condition for it to be coincidental, subaru needs to address this issue before someone is seriously injured or killed. *tr.Mileage was 70000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2005 car safety problem was reported on Nov 29, 2010.SUBARU OUTBACK 2005, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SUSPENSION . i have experienced what is referred to as "ghostwalking" in my 2005 subaru outback. while driving in winter conditions such as slush, snow and ice mix, and black ice the car fishtails in the rear wheels making it impossible to safely drive this car. however driving on hardpack snow and hardpack powder the car handles fine. the car fishtails much worse when even a little weight is loaded in the rear. i do have dedicated snow tires, with studs. i am a very experienced driver in winter conditions, i do not drive too fast in poor road conditions. this is a serious problem that apparently many people have experienced. i have multiple friends who drive older subaru's who have never experienced such an encounter with their cars. bottom line this car is not safe to drive on winter roads, i have literally feared for my life on several occasions. please do something about this. *tr.Mileage was 60000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2005 car safety problem was reported on Feb 18, 2006.SUBARU OUTBACK 2005, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SUSPENSION . i have an 2005 outback xt. this car is dangerous on packed snow. i am a very experienced winter driver and have never had a vehicle handle this "loosely" on snow. above approx 40mph the back end wants to snap around even on flat, straight roads without the being on the accelerator or brake. after the first incident in 06, i was told by the mechanic it was due to uneven tire wear and an alignment issue. so after only 15k miles, i replaced the tires and had the car aligned. years later, i am now convinced that the "ghostwalking" issue caused these other issues and was not the result of them. i have since replaced the shocks/struts and use studded snow tires in the winter. this has helped, but the problem seems to come back erratically. it always occurs at highway speeds and now is sometimes even felt on wet freeways. i personally know of three other 05 outback owners in my neighborhood that have all experienced the "ghostwalking" problem at some point. i have previously owned a 92 legacy wagon and a 96 impreza and both were outstanding on snow, even without snow tires. the 05 outback has a serious safety issue that needs to be further examined before someone is seriously injured or killed. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 12000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2005 car safety problem was reported on Jan 04, 2013.SUBARU OUTBACK 2005, manufactured by Subaru of America, Inc. had a problem with ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL . i am the third owner so after my problems, i researched to learn the first owner couldn't maintain tire life; subaru replaced all four tires and kept trying realignment for her. the second owner informed me he could not maintain new tire life, never acknowledging to me that the car is all over the road and a hazard to your life. being the third owner, i never thought when i purchased this 2005 subaru outback that it could be an engineering problem with a company like subaru, not identified or recalled. i have learned the car is unsafe and after research online have learned there could be a serious engineering problem with the raised rear suspension. i have the subaru receipts from former two owners (they were related) and obviously subaru is negligent in not identifying the issue and reporting it. two different shops have assured me it is not ball joints, or suspension, etc. i spent $750 on the rear end and new alignment at the specialty spring and suspension shop and those tires seem to be wearing evenly. the front tires are cupped on the outside severely in six months. the car is all over the road. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):4S4BP61C257.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 26, 2008.SUBARU OUTBACK 2005, manufactured by Subaru of America, Inc. had a problem with STEERING . i have a 2005 subaru outback. on several occasions, driving on hard-packed snow and/or ice/glaze on the highway i have found it nearly impossible to drive the car at traffic speeds without the rear end losing grip and sliding side to side. it feels like it's very windy, and you're about to lose control. except that it's not windy. the car just seems to lose traction in the rear wheels. we've had to slow down to around 30 mph while semi-trucks, regular fwd and even rwd vehicles blew by us. i've driven in these wintry conditions for 35 years without this sort of issue. i've owned a 1997 outback and never experienced this sort of issue. but this 2005 is scary if the road conditions are just right (wrong). this is a definite safety hazard and while i love the car in many other ways i will probably need to get rid of it. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 50000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 09, 2013.SUBARU OUTBACK 2005, manufactured by Subaru of America, Inc. had a problem with FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM . my vehicle has started to leak fuel after cold starts in colder weather (below 50 degrees f). the odor inside the cabin is enough to give me a headache. once the car warms up it does dissipate. the dealer diagnosed it as fuel lines leaking under the intake manifold. with parts and labor the bill is almost $1000. after doing some "research" online it appears that this a more widespread issue with subaru's, it even resulted in a recall of some wrxs in some states... i can't believe that subaru is not issuing a tsb or recall on other similar vehicles. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Subaru Outback 2005 problem was reported in ELDERSBURG, MD.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2005 car safety problem was reported on Jan 01, 2014.SUBARU OUTBACK 2005, manufactured by Subaru of America, Inc. had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE . i began to smell the odor of raw gasoline as the temperatures became consistently in the single to sub-zero range. i contacted subaru of america and set up an appointment with my subaru dealer for jan. 3rd. the dealer informed me that the fuel lines and clamps would need to be replaced at a cost of $500 (after an ~ $300 compensation). i rebutted and asked soa to pay for everything as this seems like a fundamental engineering/design flaw and it is also the 2nd time that i have had to make this repair (first time was when the car had ~40,000 to 50,000 miles on it)- had to replace the intake gaskets as well (per dealer). they have declined to compensate me further and claim the issue is age related. when i asked (soa) if this was a known issue for newer subarus, they said they did not know. i asked if they did not know or couldn't say and the responded "both". bottom-line: fuel leaks, of this nature due to poor design, should not be something consumers should have to worry about none-the-less pay for. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 116400 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 18, 2013.SUBARU OUTBACK 2005, manufactured by Subaru of America, Inc. had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES . on december 18, 2014 the day was clear; there had been no rain or snow that week. the pavement was dry. at the point of the issue i was in stop and go traffic, thus had used my brakes at an average of 12-18 times since i had left the house that morning. traffic was maybe moving at 20-25 miles an hour, stop and go. at one point i went to apply my brakes at a normal pressure and they started to pulse in the â¿¿anti-lock⿝ fashion. the pulses were exceptionally long, between braking (pulsing), nothing like i had ever experience before with this car or any other vehicle. however i kept my foot applied to the brake and did not try to pulse it myself. before i was able to get the car stopped it hit the car in front of me. i had about 1 and â½+ car lengths between us, again only rolling and absolutely could not get the car stopped. the collision was not hard enough to deploy the airbag on either cars. the 2012 ford escape in front had nearly no damage to the rear bumper, however due to the placement of the fordâ¿¿s bumper to my grill, my repairs were $5,534.67. my fear is it happening again. due to the make of the car my insurance company can't access the electronic information on the day of the accident. thus they will not be part of my complaint that i have filed with subaru of america, filed 3/24/14. i done research on the subrau's abs system. i found that people have been disconecting their abs due to this issue. including finding youtube videos on how to do it. the issue is obvious if this is what people feel safer with than the subaru factory abs system. subaru's claim department has no interest in investigating it without my insurance being part of the claim, even thought i am a customer of their product that is defective. obviously this is not a customers claims department. who will handle my claim if the next incident i am severely injured or worse yet? *tr.Vehicle was involved in a crash. 0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 88261 miles.

Subaru Outback 2005 Exterior Lighting

Subaru Outback 2005 Exterior Lighting Review #10659373

SUBARU OUTBACK 2005 car safety problem was reported on Nov 19, 2014.SUBARU OUTBACK 2005, manufactured by Subaru of America, Inc. had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . my wife and i recently purchased a used 2005 subaru outback. the headlights on this vehicle are what i consider to be dangerously dim, barely lighting up the road. both the fog lamps and also the high beams work well, but the low beam light (which is produced from a different bulb than the high beam) is very inadequate. i have replaced the bulbs with higher intensity bulbs. this offered little if any increase in lighting. i have also had the electrical system checked to assure the proper voltage is being supplied. googleing this problem has told me i'm not alone. other subaru owners complain of the same issue. here's what i have researched and determined to be the problem. there is an inner reflective cavity in which the headlight bulb is housed. the reflection process within this housing magnifies the light produced by the bulb. this process is similar to that of a reflective prism inside a lighthouse. in the case of our subaru, the reflective material inside of the headlight bulb housing has either worn away or become clouded to the degree that the light produced by the bulbs no longer reflects adequately to produce a bright light. these headlights need to either be replaced or perhaps somehow removed from the vehicle, opened up and then repaired. in either case this would be very expensive to the degree in which most consumers would not be willing to incur the cost, thereby continuing to take their chances driving at night with unsatisfactory headlights. my questions: is this considered a safety issue? if so, is it the responsibility of the manufacturer to correct this problem? do i have to pay for any corrections? i'd be grateful for any help or suggestions you can offer to assist me with this issue. i feel this is a potentially dangerous problem, not just for myself, but other subaru owners. thank you for your time. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 160000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):4S4BP61C257. Subaru Outback 2005 problem was reported in EUGENE, OR. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

Subaru Outback 2005 Reports


I test drove a 2011 Subaru Outback yesterday at night in a very dark area with the headlights on. I could only see out of the bottom third of the windshield. The top two thirds of the windshield looked as if a black curtain had dropped down over i

I notice if I quickly accelerate/go into overdrive - front of car will hum. Do I need to have something checked out?
Thank you!

2004 forester xt, strong gas smell in the cold weather when the heat is on. They won't fix it because they "can't find it" at my dealership. Do I need a new fuel line or is there an easier fix?

Thank you for these, can find a decent review now.

My 1998 subaru forester stutters/hiccups/bucks (whatever you call it) when going uphill, and when accelerating on a straight path, can it be the transmission?

I HAVE A SUBARU FORESTER 2000 TAIL LIGHT/PLATE LIGHT/'FRONT SIGNAL LIGHT STAYS ON.ONCE FUSE IS REMOVED LIGHT GOES OUT.WHAT COULD THE PROBLEM BE?

I own a 2008 Subaru impreza, till last week i was fine, but now it is having some problem i.e it is making whining sound from  steering pump, will i have to replace the steering pump and hoe much will it cost.

Standard on all Impreza models are anti lock disc brakes, stability control, front seat side airbags, side curtain airbags and active front head restraints to help mitigate crash-induced whiplash

2006 Subaru outback died. Will not tke a boost. With battery cable connected there is an error code in the odometer. Does anybody know what this can be?

2007 Forester bangs into gear-been doing this mainly in cold weather but now all the time. Dealer always says not problem-it has to "warm up" and doesnt want ot deal with it.

My 2002 Impreza Outback Sport's check engine light comes on when I'm going downhill, not all the time.  Also (not all the time), if I don't downshift when coming to a stop, the car dies, not stalls, dies.  It starts right back up.  The engine l

i just wrecked my 04 wrx front impact and no air bag and seat belt locked after the impact...how do i contact some one to have this investigated?
