2017 Subaru Outback Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 312017

Outback Limited 2.5L 4 cyl

  • CVT transmission
  • 1,000 miles


After spending over $XX,XXX for a car (I don't even like leather, but with the features I wanted seems standard on most cars), I'm simply mad that wearing jeans turned the light-colored leather seat blue - not all the way, but very noticeable - when I called the dealer they told me it "was my jeans". Really, Mark Miller of Midtown Salt Lake City? They will clean the seats, but I live 30 miles north of SLC, and it is not always easy to find the time to take the car back to the dealer. I read on other sites that this is an issue, with other drivers stating they have had leather seats in other cars and not had a problem. While my 2004 Toyota Corolla, did not have all the safety and bells and whistles, the car had better fabric seats, than the leather in this car - this is my 1st Subaru, and not happy with the leather seats. A lot of money, for me to have to spend over an hour cleaning the seat, and not all came off - should have stayed with Toyota.
