Subaru Outback Reliability

You won't find Subaru Outback reliability information like this anywhere else. Actual repair frequencies, not just vague dots. So you can tell how much the Subaru Outback truly differs from competing car models in reliability.

These stats have been promptly updated four times a year, to much more closely track Subaru Outback reliability as the cars age. Others tell you how reliable the Subaru Outback was a year ago, when the cars were a year younger and had 12,000 fewer miles on them. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Subaru Outback has been recently.
