Next time it acts up, open the hood and unplug the front O2 sensor. Yes this will set the Ck engine light, but the engine will now run in 'open loop' mode (preset pattern for fuel/air mixture). This will stop the bucking and you can safely get home. Only way with OBDII to even try to detect it is to map the front O2 sensor while driving in the failing condition.
P.S. his outback was sooo bad it died on the interstate, it was flatbedded to the dealer. 1st time car started and acted normally, dealer blamed bad gas. 2nd time the front sensor was replaced by a technition who saw some unusual responses.
