5 Reasons Why You'll Never Get Locked Out Of The New Subaru Outback

There is a good bet you’ll never get locked out of a 2020 Subaru Outback. Check out the 5 ways you can get into the new wagon.

If you’ve ever been locked out of your car, it’s the worse feeling in the world. It could be the reason why Subaru gives you five different ways to unlock the 2020 Subaru Outback. You already know two of the ways, which are simply using your key fob or inserting the key in the door’s lock. But there are more ways if those two aren’t enough.

You can also run your hand over the driver’s door handle to unlock the car. You will hear a beep that indicates you just unlocked the vehicle. To lock the car, there is a small button on the top of the door handle that you push and there is also a beep that lets you know the car is locked. There are other ways to gain entry into a 2020 Subaru Outback wagon even if you get locked out of the vehicle.

You can use the My Subaru app which is another little-known way to unlock a newer Subaru model. First, download the app on your smartphone and it allows you to unlock your car if you don’t have your keys with you. You might also want to stay light on a hike or a trail run and you don’t want to keep your keys with you.

You can also start your vehicle and monitor its location in a crowded parking lot after going to a sporting event or concert. For some reason it tells you the time you lock and unlock the car if you ever need to know.

There is a fourth way you might not know about. There is a small silver button on your key fob and when you push the button, a valet key pops out and it works like a regular key. You slide it back in when you're done and you are good to go.

The bonus step is a little known hands-free tailgate opening feature and you’ll never get locked out of the car. You can easily get back inside if you use a customized feature called Pin Code Access. This feature has been offered on some Subaru models since 2014, so check your owners manual to see if it’s available on your Subaru. Check out the detailed explanation below on how it works. If you own a 2020 Subaru Outback wagon, you’ll never need to call a locksmith.
