Asked by GuruSQH4H Jun 05, 2019 at 10:49 PM about the 2016 Subaru Outback 2.5i

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2016 Subaru Outback.  3 years and 3 batteries.  Something is wrong. The car
will jumper off from another vehicle and run just fine but overnight the battery
goes dead.  I'm thinking alternator but may be something else electrical or
computer related.

This is a common issue. Are you using the low capacity Subaru batteries? If so get a high capacity battery like Odyssey or Optima which will reduce or eliminate the issue. Has Subaru done a battery draw test?
