    Hi Carl,


    Happy holidays, and thanks for previous help.

    New OB owner. 2019 2.5i Limited.

    Was very, to put it mildly, surprised to go to the garage yesterday morning and find the rear gate open.

    Probably squeezed when I sat down somewhere.
    (or is there some history of "self-activation" ?)

    Is there any way to program the key fob, e.g., that it takes 2 or 3 presses in say 5 seconds to activate ? Can Dealer do this ?

    I see in the Manual that it is possible for the Dealer to completely De-Activate this button on the fob.

    If he does this, how would one activate it using the inside the car button ?

    Or must it be via the rear gate button on the gate itself ?

    What "limitations," or steps would this approach have if I have him do it ?

    Regards, and thanks,
    Bob [email protected] (direct might be best)

    Posted a message on forums whereby I yanked out my factory OEM 7” HK w/ navigation head unit it and amp. I installed a Pioneer and new amp , kept the factory HK speakers. They sound much better . I looked all over and didn’t find many doing this to the 2015-17 era OB. I posted my journey if someone else wants tot do the same...be glad the help someone if you run across them in your Subie travels.

    Btw- way fun now as I installed 2” lift, skid plates, bar in front and Yakima rack. Took it out to Telluride, CO and did 3 passes this past August. JEEP guys were “ man, a Subie is up here what the...”

    Hi Carl,

    I hope you don't mind me reaching out to you directly. 1 Lucky Texan from the ultimatesubaru.org site suggested I contact you to answer a question.

    Do you know if a Subaru dealership can un-certify or de-certify a CPO vehicle?
    I spoke to Dan Robke at Joseph Subaru of Florence yesterday about getting a 10yr/100k Gold Plus extended warranty on a Legacy I want to buy, but he asked if it was a CPO Subie and said there were issues adding a Gold Plus to a CPO vehicle.
    The dealership that has the vehicle I want said they can't de-certify a car, but a call to my local dealership said there was no problem doing that.

    I'm hoping you can help answer my questions and if possible tell me what needs to be done. I'd love to tell the one dealership how to go about going it.


    Thanks,
    Moose

    Loaners if they have cars available. Some dealerships don't have them. Obviously we do, but we only have 25 of them. I have no idea how many there are in the DFW area, sorry.

    Just wondering if it's 'policy' to offer loaners on airbag recall service or is it a dealership decision?

    got letters on my cars, kinda wondering what to expect. (If I can get a loaner, I might travel farther to a different dealer than Hiley)

    thanx

    I built it.

    There are a few options out there, either a DIY (easy diy) method i can walk him through, or a few you can buy (wilco i think makes one?)

    Hi Carl,

    Do you know which 12V socket has a 15AMP rating on the Gen 5 OB? I am planning to get a 12V portable tire compressor that has a 15A rating and want to make sure I can use it without blowing any fuses.

    Thanks

    Hi Carl,

    How are you?
    My name is Alex, I'm from Canada and this week I received the VIN for my 2016 Outback.
    Could you please help me identify if that's one of the units with the well-known problem that caused so many owners to have their cars stopped for repairs?
    What part of the VIN number I have to send you?

    Thank you!

    Regards
