2009 Outback 2.5XT (OBXT)


Recommended Posts

I just picked up an 09 OBXT and I need to know what to look out for.


I've heard about a few things and would like some more information:


1) Turbo stutter - I've heard some have an issue w/ this at 2500-3000k RPM, what is the story w/ it?

2) Turbo failures - I've read a lot about stock turbos giving up the ghost. Why do they fail and how do I prevent it? Were these issues fixed for the 2009 chassis?

3) Engine bearing failures - I've seen a few issues here as well where rod knock begins for seemingly no reason. Why does this happen and how do I prevent it?

4) Should I expect the same issues those of you w/ the Legacy sedan models are having?

5) If this was bought w/ 7 miles on it, how do I check what TSBs apply to this vehicle? I'd like to make sure my dealers are correct!

6) What other issues should I be aware of on the 2009 2.5xt models?
