Subaru Outback 2017 battery

Asked by GuruSPHBH Jun 11, 2019 at 08:00 AM about the 2017 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Battery died in the Subaru Outback. Bad
battery was just replaced with a new one a
few months ago (Feb) and now it is dead
again with no reason. Suspect it is something
more than just the battery. It took the dealer
10 days to diagnose and replace the battery
the first time. Now I can’t even schedule a
service appt for almost 1 month. What else
could be causing problem, if it isn’t just a
defective battery? Do I have to wait for a
month and go to dealer to have warranty
repair done?

This is a common problem with newer Subaru's due to the inadequate battery Subaru installs. You may get a new one under warranty but my suggestion is to get a high capacity battery such as Optima.
