I just hate that whole car.

Also, you/your jeep makes a brief appearance in this video.

My brother-in-law's 4WD Wrangler does things off road with ease that my OB can do but barely and the truth is the hard challenging stuff the OB cannot do - and was not meant to. My point is Brucy's video is cool but if you went and bought an OB because you want to go off roading with Wranglers and Land Rovers that may not be such a great choice.

Oh goody, a bitch thread.


How about turning the wiper speed control clockwise slows down the wipers instead of speeding them up? It's backwards!

The traction control system. Plenty has been said on it.
Well you can always turn it off.
Not really. Unless you considering yanking fuses turning it off. It also is a net positive even if it does get overwhelmed.
I actually have a button that turns it off - true it come on every time you start the car but I can turn it off


You can turn enough of them off but they'll still come back on eventually. Again a net positive with the safety features but sometimes it's definitely in the 'boy who cried wolf' territory especially when driving on winding roads with the lane keep alert.
I had to play with the menu to get the ones that annoy me the most off - I turned them off in August and they haven't come back on yet. I drive on the same kinds of roads in NC and can appreciate what you are saying about lane assist. I never turn it off but believe it can be toggled on and off pretty easily.

I can only add that I wish the stereo had the volume control linked to vehicle speed.

no sub section needed for bitch threads. the big gen5 section as a whole works fine.

maybe we need a sub-section for non-bitch threads.

? Want people to stop needing to ask what exact car you have? year -model -engine -trans, scroll down to "your car":

Here's a couple of other reasons to love the spare tire. You can only use it as a rear tire. "So listen honey you have to put the spare tire on the back of the car first & then take the good rear tire & use that to replace the flat front tire." that's gonna go over big with the little woman. I don't want to do that myself. Plus now I know why they give you a bag for the flat. I thought it was to keep the tire well clean. Nope. The bag IS the tire well. Me no likey this. Subaru fooled me with this one, shame on me for not asking. Most of the other stuff I don't like is just little nittles that I have to learn how to live with. Also the voice controlled do everything screen I didn't expect to work 100% anyway. So it doesn't & it lived up to my expectations so I'm not that disappointed. I'll have to check if they make a hitch mounted spare tire carrier or use one of those hitch baskets for a full size spare.

Yes, very odd choice. My Impreza wasn't backwards (nor was any other vehicle I've ever driven).
