Now.... you know with autonomous driving being developed, this whole thing might not have been an issue. You all know once cars can drive for themselves...humans are going to be doing a different type of driving.




Back seat or otherwise. Then...we are really going to have a problem with "smudges".



Yikes!...Duck! Now you might really need a towel.

I had drifted up into the middle of the road. and noticed just as the oncoming driver was honking at me.

no need for fancy full fledged Eyesight, even more simple rudimentary lane keeping technology would have done the job,

or even a low tech rumble strip, chopped of the middle of the road would have done it.

(the state actually has done that in places here recently....and if they have not done so already on that section of road, maybe I should send them a letter detailing how dangerous it is to be a teen driver on their roads).

and I am getting so old, it took me like 18 hours to even remember what that chick's name was after 26 years.

_______

that said. I think it would make for a great Subaru commercial. ...a spoof of their current teens driving their families' brand new cars.


for me this was around 1991-1992 in a 88 justy 2wd, 5speed manual.

but could have been a 86 4wd DL wagon. (4wd high via a "shift on the fly type" button on top of the 5 speed manual shift knob.)

? Want people to stop needing to ask what exact car you have? year -model -engine -trans here:

All-time worst was a girl I gave a ride to in college, I was following a group of people to lunch (we needed multiple cars to fit everyone) and this chick started like fiddling with all the HVAC controls then changing the radio and turning it up then complaining that we needed to go a different way than the people I was following. It was awful. I wished I could smack them and lock them in the back.

Mostly the only thing I have people do that bothers me is playing with the window-control...either repeatedly clicking roll-up or making it go up and down like 1/8 inch repeatedly. Generally I don't care if people mess with the controls - I'll let them play DJ with the aux-in or adjust their side of the dual-zone HVAC and do whatever they want as long as it's not actively distracting me.

Not sure if trying to keep rolling it up hurts anything but I toggle the window-lock when I notice passengers playing with the controls just in case. At least then it's only the physical button that might wear out, not the motor.


...and #1 thing I hate riding with other people is when they turn the fan down to "almost nothing" or off. It's worse when I'm in the back seat. As long as I have enough air (I find 1/2 fan or more about right) I don't really get car-sick at all doing basically anything in any kind of conditions -- but I get super-nauseous in no time if I don't have enough air. That's about the only thing I really have to demand when I ride with people but it's mostly I don't want to puke all over their car (and I hope that they'd consider a bit of fan reasonable trade-off for not blowing chunks).

Have you tried using the Google search bar at the top of the forum?

2003 Outback 2.5 wagon: "Kaylee". 161,000 and counting.
More rust than I care to think about. And leaking head gaskets. And electrical gremlins. Still flyin'.

2002 L.L. Bean Limited 3.0 Outback wagon: "Mal". 110,000 and counting.
Plenty of battle scars and fixing up the previous owner's neglect.

When tying to make a right lane change they lean forward so they can see the blind spot while blocking my view.

It must be able to. The new(er?) OB's have circuit breakers for that reason. I actually read the manual for that nugget.

Oh Those Little Things

What makes me cringe is someone who gets in my car and S-L-A-M-S the door so hard the car rocks on its suspension! It's like they just crawled out of their dump truck and are used to big heavy steel doors. You know your door frame is bent, its gotta be. You can tell a lot about a person by the way they close a car door...

Offer to take her off-roading. Let her drive. That will make her stop, and she will really dig you for that.

You handed her a tissue to wipe off your window? I'm guessing it's a moot point now since I am guessing she won't be a passenger in your car again!
