Subaru Outback 2006 Exterior Lighting Review #10161538

SUBARU OUTBACK 2006 car safety problem was reported on Dec 15, 2005.SUBARU OUTBACK 2006, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . this is not something specific to just my car but is what i consider a fault for the whole car model. my complaint is that the headlight is hard-wired on. that's ok, but poses a problem at night as one can see that the headlight is on, not realizing that the taillights are not on. you start the car and drive off not realizing that the back of the car is not visible. there is no alert (such as no or dimmed dashboard lights) to let you know that the back of the car cannot be seen in the dark. not only have i made this mistake many times, but i have also noticed other drivers of my car make and model doing the same thing. i think this is a safety hazard and could be remedied by having the taillights be hard-wired as well or by having no dash lights unless the actual headlights are turned on. *jb.Mileage was 0 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2006 car safety problem was reported on Dec 26, 2007.SUBARU OUTBACK 2006, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with POWER TRAIN:DRIVELINE:DIFFERENTIAL UNIT . when driving our subaru 2006 2.5i outback wagon (4-speed auto w/sport shift) in winter road conditions, we have had multiple instances where the rear of the car begins to float or do mini-fishtails. it feels like the rear wheels are alternately pushing the car back and forth or like there are wind gusts hitting the car. the floating has a rhythmic feel and may continue for many miles until the road conditions change. when the car is ┐floating┐, you sense that any change (steering, gas or braking) will cause you to lose control of the vehicle. and while we have not had an accident yet, it is a truly scary driving sensation and only a matter of time before this causes a serious accident. the only solution i have found is to ease up on gas until you find a speed (usually under 40 mph) where the floating is less pronounced. this is our 9th subaru and we have 18 years experience driving subaru awd vehicles on minnesota winter roads. none of our former cars, up through the 2004 outback, ever behaved in the manner. please note, not all winter road conditions seem to trigger the problem. i have most frequently experienced the floating when on asphalt road surfaces that are icy or covered in compacted snow or slush. i have had it occur on completely straight roads under steady throttle while traveling under 45 mph. when it occurs, i have always been driving at safe speeds and have noted that other vehicles were passing by at much higher speeds and seemed comfortable and confident with the road conditions. the most serious incident occurred after we had new michelin tires put on and the dealer had completed an alignment. no other parts have been replaced. please note, this is a subaru. your database of vins comes up with the keystone rv manufacturer. this is not correct. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 49000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2006 car safety problem was reported on Feb 01, 2008.SUBARU OUTBACK 2006, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SUSPENSION . while driving on icy or packed snow conditions sometimes the outback's rear-end feels like it's breaking free, in a side-to-side motion. this is also referred to as ghostwalking or maybe fishtailing, but not the kind of fishtailing most are familiar with. it seems the car isn't equipped to handle these very specific conditions and as a result the rear-end starts wobbling. i've driven in foul weather many times, many miles, many years and do not drive too fast for conditions and i know how to drive in bad weather. i'm 99% sure this condition is resulting from the car, not the driver. when it does happen i end up driving much slower than other traffic, to the point where people are eager to pass and are annoyed. i also run dedicated snow tires. this is supposed to be a "go-anywhere" car with proven awd capabilities, and i believe it was in prior generations, but there is something wrong with the 3rd generation my2005+ cars. soa please do some testing as i cannot honestly recommend this car and i would not buy another. i'm still debating if i'll be keeping this one. please consider your reputation and look seriously into this matter. you have a very specific piece of the auto market and i hope you have intentions of keeping it. this is most certainly a safety issue and may be a result of the awd system, suspension, alignment or any combination of them. we need your help in staging tests to get to the root cause. i have contacted soa directly and hope this will take action. *tr.Subaru Outback 2006 problem was reported in SANFORD, ME.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2006 car safety problem was reported on Dec 28, 2008.SUBARU OUTBACK 2006, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR . i own a 2006 subaru outback 2.5i with automatic transmission and about 28,000 miles. it is an all wheel drive vehicle. on "black ice", regular ice and hard snow pack, it weaves side to side on its own. the driver basically loses the ability to control the vehicle. the experience would be similar to be driving with a strong side wind which moves your vehicle on you. the difference is with the wind you can take corrective action and steer into the wind to counteract its effect. in this case, you are captive to wherever the vehicle takes you and can do nothing about it short of slowing down or stop driving it altogether. this is unnerving to say the least and frightening otherwise. the only way to stop the vehicle from moving by itself is to slow down to 35mph or less. while i have not been in an accident (yet), while driving it under these conditions, it is very nerve racking. subaru is well aware of the problem and has chosen to do nothing about it to this point. they must be waiting for fatalities or lawsuits before they feel a "fix" is necessary. please investigate this problem. it is real and could be very dangerous if not fixed. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 27000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2006 car safety problem was reported on Jan 24, 2009.SUBARU OUTBACK 2006, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR . i have a 2006 subaru outback 2.5i. occasionally, while driving on snowpacked/icy roads the rear end begins to sway abruptly back and forth, even on straight sections of road. it causes the car to become almost uncontrollable as it wants to start fishtailing. the only way to stop it is to slow well below a safe speed and the speed of traffic, creating another potentially dangerous situation. it appears to happen more frequently when the car is loaded with 3 to 5 passengers plus ski gear. i do a lot of driving in winter conditions in the mountains of co and have never experienced anything like this. i just had my car in to the local subaru dealership (for the 2nd time) and they could not recreate the problem or find anything wrong with the vehicle. the technician did acknowledge that other customers had the same complaint and they couldn't find anything wrong with their vehicles either. his only recommendation was to go to a more aggressive snow tire. i don't believe this would address the problem of why the car is swaying back and forth in the first place. it would just create more friction on the road surface to keep the car from sliding side to side. this needs to be addressed as it creates an extremely dangerous situation with a possible loss of control while traveling at safe speeds for the conditions. there is no reason a vehicle should be trying to fishtail while traveling on a straight section of road, regardless of how slippery it is. *tr.Mileage was 39000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2006 car safety problem was reported on Jan 02, 2011.SUBARU OUTBACK 2006, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SUSPENSION . when driving on poor traction roads (ice or compacted snow), the rear of the car is very unstable and shifts left to right by as much as 2-3 feet - while going in a straight line, straight road - maintaining a constant speed (no acceleration or braking). this happened several times, over a 3400 mile road trip this winter - sometimes lasting for hours, making for very difficult and unsafe driving, almost going out of control on several occasions - even at very slow speeds (20-30 mph)! there were two people in the car, but a lot of luggage - probably exceeding 400 lbs of weight in the rear, but nothing excessive, and well within the specified limits for this car. i had my alignment adjusted 3 months ago to factory specs. it however appears that when the car has any weight in the rear, the toe-in adjustment changes significantly to cause "rear steering" which leads to the unstable behavior on slippery roads, and uneven wear of tires (that i have also noticed). there appears to be no way to keep the alignment stable - different loads should not affect the geometry in this way. i really hope subaru can help us solve this problem, it is very unsafe and this car is advertised as an awd snow vehicle! i would be happy to provide more information..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 60000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2006 car safety problem was reported on Jan 17, 2011.SUBARU OUTBACK 2006, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL . i own a 2006 subaru outback 2.5 with a manual transmission. this vehicle is an early warning indicator for black ice on the road surface. the outback vehicle has a stability control problem in certain conditions. while driving at constant speed (constant and low throttle position) on a flat road, the back end of the vehicle tends to oscillate from side to side in icy conditions. the vehicle feels like it is going to spin out, although that hasn't happened to me yet. other vehicles on the road at the same time seem to have adequate traction (2wd, awd, 4wd). the problem is not traction while: 1) cornering under slippery conditions, 2) hard acceleration on ice, or 3) braking on ice. road conditions that i have experienced the oscillation on are very thin ice (black ice). i suspect there is something wrong with the rear suspension design on my outback. the problem is more prevalent and pronounced when the vehicle has occupants in the rear seats. the stability of this vehicle seems to be marginal and it only takes certain conditions (road and vehicle parameters) to be on the edge of disaster. subaru released technical service bulletin 05-36-07 which eliminated the positive side of the original toe tolerance for rear tire alignment. i think the vehicle experiences large rear tire toe in when weight is added. i suspect this large rear tire toe in when weight is added contributes to the stability problem in icy conditions i have brand new (jan 2010) hankook ipike w409 studless winter tires. its not the tires. those who have not experienced this situation naturally respond by saying it is ice, what are your expecting, just slow down. i have lived in colorado since 1981 and consider myself a competent driver in all weather conditions. please respond as i would like to get this problem fixed if possible...the car just turned 50,000 miles..Mileage was 47655 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2006 car safety problem was reported on Nov 13, 2011.SUBARU OUTBACK 2006, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL:ACCELERATOR PEDAL . i was driving at night at 55 mph in my 2006 subaru outback. the check engine light came on and the cruise control light started to blink. the accelerator pedal became unresponsive and it appeared that the car's engine went into idle mode. i was losing speed and decided to move my car to the shoulder of the road. i shut off my engine and waited a minute or two and tried to restart the car without success. a few minutes later i was able to restart the car and the accelerator pedal seemed to function normally, although the two warning lights were still illuminated. the next day i started the car a couple of times, the accelerator pedal functioned normally and both warning lights were no longer lit. the car operated normally for about one week. this indentical problem recurred again one week after the first incident. i drove my 2006 outback to my independent subaru mechanic who read the error code as p2138. he has seen several of his client's cars with this problem recently and recommended that i take my car to a subaru dealer for inspection and repair. a few days later i had my outback serviced at my local subaru dealer. they diagnosed the problem as a faulty accelerator pedal sensor (integral to the pedal assembly) and confirmed the p2138 error code. the pedal sensor was replaced and (two days later) the car appears to be functioning normally again. the repair bill was about $320 for the parts and labor. i do believe this is a potential safety issue. although both times the accelerator pedal became unresponsive i was on a road with very few cars and had no difficulty getting safely to the side of the road. the situation could have been more dangerous if i was trying to change lanes at high speed with lots of traffic around me. *kb.Mileage was 63700 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2006 car safety problem was reported on Feb 24, 2012.SUBARU OUTBACK 2006, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SUSPENSION . i was driving on hwy 287 from casper back to laramie, wy at around 40 mph, which is lower than the speed limit of 65 mph, the car started fishtailing by itself suddenly and span 360 to the side of the road, there's black ice on the road but overall condition was good. the reason why i drove much slower than other cars (fwd cars) was that i don't have any confidence with the subaru, it feels like the car is 'floating' on the road, the rear end tends to slide to the left or right all by itself, without any hard braking, fast steering, or sudden pushing on the throttle. i bought this car used last year with about 84k miles on it, it came with a set of snow tires, i had this problem once while the car skidded and span 360 on the interstate at 45 mph ( i was much slower than most of the cars on the highway), i changed the tired and had it re-aligned after the winter, and it happened again this winter, all parts on the suspension are from stock, no aftermarket parts were ever added to the car except for the tires, so i think there may be some issues with the suspension design of my car that's been there from the factory. i did some research online and found the term 'ghostwalking', it appears to be pretty common on outback from 05 to 09, i wonder if subaru has acknowledged this issue and how can i get this fixed. *tr.Subaru Outback 2006 problem was reported in LARAMIE, WY.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2006 car safety problem was reported on Feb 06, 2012.SUBARU OUTBACK 2006, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SUSPENSION . i took my 2006 subaru outback 2.5 in for routine service and tire rotation. was told that my left outer cv boot was torn. took the car to the dealership who verified the problem and was given a price to repair, which i could not afford. since the car only had approx. 55,000 miles, and my extended warranty had just lapsed, i contacted subaru and was told they would reimburse me for half of the cost of the repairs if they were made at a subaru authorized mechanic, i.e. dealership. the cost my mechanic of choice quoted was less than half of the dealership fee, so i declined the offer from subaru. july 2012, 60,000 miles, took car in for routine servicing again and was told the right inner cv boot is torn and the left rear strut is leaking. i cannot afford these repairs and have done research to find out that cv boot tears are quite common in subaru's. they will not cover the cost of repair or do a recall even though since my experiences, i have talked to many subaru owners who have had cv boot issues. as it stands now, i do not feel the car is safe to drive, so it sits in the garage while my friends provide transportation. i paid more than $20,000 to buy a car that sits in the garage. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 55000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2006 car safety problem was reported on Jan 15, 2013.SUBARU OUTBACK 2006, manufactured by Subaru of America, Inc. had a problem with VISIBILITY/WIPER . rear wiper ceased functioning. the problem was due to broken wire(s) in a wiring harness that passes through a rubber accordion boot between the car body and the tail-gate (near the right-hand tailgate hinge). many of the other wires, affecting upper brake light, license plate lights, backup lights, and tailgate latch/lock, were frayed and were replaced due to imminent failure of the above listed components. research at an online forum for subaru owners showed that many other owners (of 2005 and 2006 subaru outbacks) have experienced similar failures due to broken wires in this wiring harness. i suspect that it is an under-reported problem. i believe that subaru should be asked to issue a safety recall notice. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 60000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2006 car safety problem was reported on Dec 03, 2013.SUBARU OUTBACK 2006, manufactured by Subaru of America, Inc. had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . same symptom happened twice: once just after starting from a service area on the interstate, the second on suburban roads i describe here. during a normal 30 mile suburban trip, after about 20 miles the vehicle suddenly lost power and the check engine light came on. the engine continued running but the accelerator pedal seemed to have no control over the engine speed or power. after coasting to a stop and turning the engine off for a minute the car started and ran normally, though the check engine light stayed on for a day or so. when we took the vehicle to the dealer after the first incident they were not able to interpret the check engine codes; after the second incident they found a p2138 code -- "accelerator position sensor" failure. they replaced the accelerator assembly and the vehicle seems to be running correctly again. as i understand it the issue is a failure in the accelerator position sensor: there are dual sensors in the assembly and if their readings differ the accelerator pedal is effectively "disconnected" and the driver loses all power. i believe this is a serious safety issue: the failure could just as well have taken place at high speed on the interstate without the possibility of a safe stop, and having the first indication of trouble being "losing all power" is not acceptable. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 128000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2006 car safety problem was reported on Feb 21, 2014.SUBARU OUTBACK 2006, manufactured by Subaru of America, Inc. had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i was driving the vehicle at a steady rate of 50mph. suddenly the cruise control indicator light illuminated and began to flash as well as the check engine indicator light. the vehicle also became unresponsive to the accelerator when pressed or depressed. the vehicle would maintain a speed about 20mph even after coming to a complete stop. after pulling to the side of the road and engaging the hazard lights, i put the car in park. the rpm gauge then skyrockets to 3000-4000 rpm and the engine becomes really loud. i turn the key off and let the car sit for a few minutes. neglecting to sit for a few minutes results in the same behavior. after starting the car again the cruise control indicator light still flashes and the check engine indicator light remains on. after 3 restarts both indicator lights are off and all seems fine. after taking it to the dealership they told me it is a "bad accelerator and it has been replaced recently". the dealership then reset the code. this has happened over 10 times in the last 3 months and continues to happen on a random basis. loss of power and control is unsafe and needs to be addressed. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 112650 miles.

Subaru Outback 2006 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?

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?
