Known issues with Outback?

Asked by Trevor Marmont

I am thinking of buying a new or near-new Subaru Outback. I was wondering if you have any reports on the CVT gearbox or any other issues with them.

I've just driven the latest Liberty and Forester and can report Subaru's CVT is vastly better than past versions. The cars are also a step up in quality and refinement. I recommend getting the EyeSight safety package.
