 Description of the problemI have always wanted a 3. 6l and this is my first 3. 6l 6 cylinder 2018 subaru outback! Am disappointed with few problems: the front seating is not comfortable and not supportive at all, especial in hard turns the seats will not hold you in place, the seat bed is to short and does not support long legs if you are over 5 feet tall. For some reason this is my 3rd subaru 2nd outback that has wheel alignment problem right out of the box!!! I always seem to be pulling the steering-wheel/vehicle to the right and my steering is always on a 15-20 degree off and if i don't steer and pull to the right the vehicle drifts way to the left lane and this dangers and a major problem. Also while driving on highways with speed over 60 the vehicle vibrates i took it in for 4 tire wheel balancing and i hope this will fix the problem, mind you this is a new car. 2018 outback has a problem while driving on highways and speeds over 60 the vehicle drifts or sways dangerously left and right out of control as if something is pushing or pushing the vehicle left and right, i don't know if the highway vibration with speeds exceeding 60 is associated with the sway or its a wheel balancing problem. Previously owned subaru's 2011 outback, 2011 legacy, 2014 outback, 2018 outback with only 290 miles on the vehicle with a full gas tank i drove it till it displayed and the gas light is on that i only have 40 miles to go before running out of gas so i drove it to be precise another 12 miles then stated that i only have 30 miles to empty and parked it while i went to work , 6 hours later to go home and the vehicle will not start, unfortunately i ran out of gas! I don't know if this was a glitch or its going to be a problem but i will keep my eyes on it.
