2000 Subaru Questions and Answers


  • Draw-Tite Hitch Recommendation for Ground Clearance on a 2000 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • Since the CURT Trailer Hitch # C12270 will sit below the rear bumper of your 2000 Subaru Outback Wagon it will reduce the ground clearance on your vehicle. However, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 36284 will give you a little more ground clearance as the area that goes around the exhaust tip will go above the tip on the Draw-Tite hitch. Whereas, it goes below the tip on the CURT hitch. Check out the picture I attached that shows both of these hitches installed on a similar vehicle as...

  • Best and Most Economical Flat Tow System for a 2000 Subaru Forester
  • The most economical flat towing system for your 2000 Subaru Forester with manual transmission is going to depend on your towing situation and frequency. You will need a set of base plates for the Forester, a tow bar, lighting, safety cables, and a supplemental braking system, which is required by most states. If you will be towing frequently, you will probably want to go with a better tow bar and a more permanent lighting system, for ease of use and longevity. If you just want to...

  • Mounting Hole to Receiver Face on Curt Trailer Hitch # C12270 for a 2000 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • I do have a way that you can determine the clearance with Curt trailer hitch # C12270 installed. Take a look at the instructions I have linked for you. Find the mounting point on the vehicle for the forward most attachment point (towards the front of the vehicle). Measure from this mounting hole straight back towards the rear of the vehicle 18-1/4 inches. This is where the face of the receiver will be. If you measure from that point to the distance required to clear the rear bumper,...

  • Recommended Platform Bike Rack for 2000 Subaru Forester
  • Actually, the SportRack Super EZ you mentioned, part # SR2901LR would be a pretty good choice for you. You will want to make sure the weight of your bikes plus the weight of the rack you choose does not exceed the tongue weight capacity of the hitch installed on your vehicle. Your hitch should have a sticker on it that will state the maximum tongue weight capacity, which is the maximum amount of weight that can be suspended from the hitch. If you do not already have a hitch installed...

  • The Best Trailer Hitch for a 1993 to 2007 Subaru Impreza
  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24710 will fit the following vehicles: 1993 to 2001 Subaru Impreza, all models 2002 to 2007 Subaru Impreza sedan, wagon, and WRX I have linked a video showing the hitch being installed on a 2007 Impreza. I have also linked the instructions to the right. If you plan on doing any towing with the hitch, you will need the proper ball mount, part # 3593. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch use # 19258. For trailer wiring for a 2000 Impreza you...

  • Can 2001 Ford Windstar be Flat Towed Behind an RV
  • Based on the online owner's manual (page 183-184) for your 2001 Ford Windstar, Ford does not recommend that these front-wheel drive vehicles be flat towed behind a motorhome with all 4 wheels on the ground. For towing the vehicle, using a tow dolly like the Roadmaster # RM-2000-1 is going to be the best option. The owner's manual does state that the vehicle can be flat towed in an emergency situation only (with a maximum speed of 35 mph and a distance of up to 50 miles).

  • Will Kuat NV Bike Carrier Clear Rear Bumper on 2000 Subaru Outback with Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch
  • On Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 36284 it measures approximately 6 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole back to clear the rear bumper on a 2000 Subaru Outback Wagon. The Kuat NV, # NV12G for 1-1/4 inch hitches, sticks out 7-7/8 inches to the nearest part of the carrier when folded up and 10-1/2 inches when folded down so it will clear the rear of the Outback.

  • Installing Trailer Connector on 2000 Subaru Outback for Trailer with Surge Brakes
  • Either the # 33855 you mentioned or the # 118461 would provide a working 4-pole trailer connector for your Outback. From there, you would need an adapter like # 37185 to convert the 4-pole to a 7-way. The adapter provides a 7-way blade-style connector, as opposed to a 7-way round pin connector. If your trailer uses a 7-way connector with the round pins, you can either use an additional adapter like part # 47595 or remove the round pin connector from the trailer and install the much more...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2000 Subaru Impreza Outback
  • The only hitches available for your 2000 Subaru Impreza Outback are Class I hitches like the Curt Hitch part # C11318. The part # C12270 that you referenced will fit a 2000 Subaru Outback Wagon, but not a Subaru Impreza Outback as they are two different cars. For trailer wiring you would want the # C59496, for a ball mount part # C45022, 1-7/8 inch ball # C40001, 2 inch ball # C40018, pin and clip # F-4.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2000 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport with Factory Crossbars
  • The only roof rack recommendation I can make for your 2000 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport that has factory crossbars will be the Yakima Roof Rack that consists of the following parts: Round 48" CrossBars # Y00408 Q46 Q Clips for Yakima Q Towers # Y00646 Yakima Q Towers # Y00124 I checked and this is the only option we carry for your roof setup. Be sure not to exceed the weight capacity for this rack at 165 lbs and what is listed as the roof capacity in the owners manual of your vehicle.

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack for a 2000 Subaru Impreza Coupe with Rear Spoiler
  • Because your 2000 Subaru Impreza has a rear spoiler the only trunk mount rack that is going to work is the Hollywood Racks Over-The-Top rack, # HRF2. It is built with an additional arm that moves the straps up and over the spoiler enabling it to carry bikes without interference from the spoiler. I have linked a video showing how the rack works. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical mens bike would) then I recommend...

  • Recommended Rubber Springs for Suspension Enhancement on a Trailer With 800 lbs Max Load
  • If you are wanting to use rubber springs then I recommend the Timbren Trailer Suspension Enhancement System for Light-Duty Trailers, part # TTRA1702. These springs have a capacity of 1,000 lbs and measure 2-3/4 inches tall and 3-3/8 inches diameter with no load, and 1-1/8 inches tall and 5 inches diameter when loaded. Even though these do not fit the height and diameter that you want, they are the best solution for improving your trailer's ride because they were specifically designed...

  • Will Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 36284 Fit on 2000 Subaru Legacy Wagon
  • After confirming with Draw-Tite, I can tell you the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 36284 is a compatible fit for your 2000 Subaru Legacy Wagon. It is a custom fit for your vehicle and features bolt-on installation with no welding required. It is a 1-1/4-inch trailer hitch with a max GTW of 3500 lbs and a max tongue weight of 300 lbs. I have provided a link to the installation instructions for this hitch as well as a video showing a typical installation. If you need a drawbar for this hitch,...

  • Availability of a Class III Hitch That Fits Both 2000 and 2015 Subaru Outback
  • We do offer options in a Class II hitch for your 2000 Subaru Outback wagon (but no Class III), and in both Class II and Class III types for the 2015 model year Outback Wagon, but no one single hitch fits both vehicles. It is very rare for a single hitch product to fit two vehicles whose model years are well over 10 years apart. The links provided for you will show you the hitch options for each vehicle. We offer three options in a Class II for the 2000 as long as it is NOT the sport...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2000 Subaru Legacy
  • The only base plate kit we offer for your 2000 Subaru Legacy Outback is the Blue Ox kit part # BX3611 which is a confirmed fit. You would need to use a Blue Ox tow bar with this like the part # BX7365 which comes with safety cables. I am not sure everything you already so I will just list everything you would need. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2000 Subaru Outback to Carry 4 Bikes
  • If the 1-1/4 inch hitch is a Class II hitch you can carry 4 bikes with a bike rack installed in the hitch. If the 1-1/4 inch hitch is a Class I hitch then you are limited to 2 bikes like you referenced. Since there is a Class II 1-1/4 inch hitch available for your 2000 Subaru Outback Wagon you can carry 4 bikes. For a hitch you would want the Draw Tite Hitch part # 36284. I attached an install video for this hitch plus an FAQ on hitch classifications for you to check out. For a bike...

  • Is There an Adapter For 2002 Softride Dura Compatible to Fit 2000 Subaru Outback With 1-1/4 Hitch
  • Softride actually makes a conversion kit for older bike racks to fit Class II, 1-1/4 inch hitches. It is Universal Hitch Bar Kit # SR26446. If you were to buy the new Softride Dura this adapter is included. By using this conversion adapter it will not reduce your weight capacity as the Brophy Adapter # HTAD would. Before you attach this bike rack to your 2000 Subaru Outback Wagon please check the owners manual for the Class rating of your hitch and tow capacity for your vehicle. My...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2000 Subaru Impreza Sport Wagon without a Hitch
  • For your 2000 Subaru Impreza Sport Wagon we have several bike racks that are confirmed as a fit for this vehicle. If your Impreza does not have a rear spoiler, then I highly recommend the Thule Raceway # TH9001PRO for a 2 bike carrier or the # TH9002PRO as a 3 bike carrier. If your Impreza does have a spoiler, then hatch mounted bike racks are not recommended due to the additional weight that will be exerted on the spoiler. If you do have factory installed spoiler then you will want...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2000 Subaru Legacy
  • For your 2000 Subaru Legacy we have 1-1/4 inch hitches available like the # 36284, but since 2 inch hitches are generally reserved for larger vehicles like SUVs and trucks there are none available for your vehicle. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Will the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX3611 fit a 2000 Subaru Legacy Outback
  • The Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX3611 is confirmed to fit the 2000 Subaru LEGACY Outback, but not the 2000 Subaru Outback Wagon or Sedan. There are no base plates available for those two vehicles. So if you have a Legacy Outback this kit would work for you. I attached installation instructions for this base plate kit plus an FAQ on flat towing for you to check out.

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes with a 2000 Subaru Impreza
  • There are only Class I hitches available for your 2000 Subaru Impreza. The best way to carry 4 bikes would be to use a hitch rack for two of them and then roof racks for the additional two. The Draw Tite Hitch part # 24710 that you referenced would be a great choice for a hitch and then for a bike rack you would want the Swagman XTC-2 part # S64670. This is a great rack that is very popular that has a ton of positive reviews. I attached a review video for you to check out. For a roof...
