  1. iSight Upgrade

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    Wouldn't it be nice if we didn't have to design cars with safety in mind, keeping in mind that the least common denominator is that most drivers really are idiots? They're designed to default to on because of that. Personally, while I tend to think of it as evolution in action, for some reason...
  2. Starlink Infotainment Bug Thread

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    Considering that Kevin got fired from his job because of a comment he made here, that would be a yes. I found this place by accident, actually, trying to learn more about the cars. Once I got active here, I was politely told the appropriate guidelines for posting on social media. For me, this...
  3. Steep Hill Vs Eye Sight (Pre-Collison detection)

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    I cannot officially say that I completely agree with you on the Start/stop system. Something that is shoved down OUR throats (meaning the manufacturers, due to EPA and fuel economy government regulations) is, at least in my opinion, something in a different category from an actual manufacturer...
  4. Steep Hill Vs Eye Sight (Pre-Collison detection)

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    In this, I disagree with you that it's a flaw. The system is doing what it's designed to do. Unlike the vehicle operators (us), the system doesn't have the ability to make a judgement call. If something meets the parameters that have been programmed into it, then it will turn on. That's why...
  5. Steep Hill Vs Eye Sight (Pre-Collison detection)

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    We were TOLD that's what it's supposed to do, at our ride and drive for the 2019 Forester, because of the potential / probability that you're going to be doing fun things. (And it does that on my 2019 Forester.) Which is what I've been telling my customers. However, from what's been described...
  6. Steep Hill Vs Eye Sight (Pre-Collison detection)

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    Normal functioning of the eyesight system.. It sounds like throttle management kicking in. When we go to pull the cars up onto pad in front of the dealership, like we're trying to get them under cover to avoid Oklahoma hard rain (aka hail), we pull them straight in. We can get the front tires...
  7. My dealer told me not to use rain X

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    Okay, now that there's been a lot of tales on here from people saying one thing or another ... Rain-X on your windshield can cause a film, but that's NOT the problem / issue that's being referenced when Subaru says don't put it or any other film on your windshield. If you've ever properly...
  8. Outback sales for 2019 YTD are Flat over YTD 2018

    General Discussions
    It's pretty simple. The "domestic" automakers are doing away with their sedans, other than a VERY limited line-up. "Foreign" automakers aren't - because they still need those vehicles for their OWN domestic markets, as well as their export markets to Europe and Asia. You're correct in who our...
  9. Outback sales for 2019 YTD are Flat over YTD 2018

    They can't. Keep in mind the keiretsu network, along with the assorted zaibatsu. The respective banks of each company can't be allowed to join, which is what would have to happen.
  10. Outback sales for 2019 YTD are Flat over YTD 2018

    General Discussions
    What we're seeing here is that we're attracting buyers from the $50k - $60k range with our $40k vehicles. You're correct, there are nicer vehicles - but are they more capable? Of course not. One thing I consistently am hearing is that people cross shopping us from Lexus and Acura are amazed...
  11. 2020 onyx rear ended

    Member Mishaps
    If you do NOT trade your car in - you're simply dropping the keys off - there's a $300 lease disposition fee. The only way it really comes into play is if you're NOT getting another Subaru. If you drive more than 15,000 miles per year, then you want to buy your car. If you drive UNDER that...
  12. 2020 onyx rear ended

    Member Mishaps
    That's why I'm leasing my wife's Forester. If we get a good Oklahoma hard rain in the spring (meaning golf ball sized hail) that does $6K worth of damage, then we fix it, paying the deductible, and at the end of the lease, drop off the keys and $300. And if we DON'T get any damage, I'll do a...
  13. Outback sales for 2019 YTD are Flat over YTD 2018

    General Discussions
    Those were both major obvious body redesigns, as well as the introduction to Eyesight. Production then simply could not keep up with demand - we went from August of 2014 until March of 2016 with ZERO inventory on the ground. You wanted a new Outback, you came in and test drove the service...
  14. Technology specialist

    General Discussions
    What we at the dealership level call the Redelivery Specialist. The person that you should be going to see 2 - 4 weeks after you buy your new car to answer all those questions that have come up since you bought your car and it was originally delivered to you by your salesman. At our place...
  15. 2020 lane centering - lane spacing modifications?

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    One thing I've noticed that you have to be VERY careful about is when there has been road work - with temporary marks that were later sanded off. I've had lane centering mess up slightly where the sanded things were of more contrast than the actual lines.
  16. Rear washer fluid reservoir?

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    They also draw from two different levels, so that if you run out with regular use on the back, you'll still have a little for the front.
  17. Front wheel well slots/holes. 2020 Outback...Why?

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    Not a guess, actual reality. Thanks for playing 'Ask the Subaru guy'. :ROFLMAO: In all seriousness, you know those little notch looking things on top of the wheel arch moldings? They're present not for aesthetics, but are just like these holes in the wheel wells, they're present for better...
  18. GPS on 2020 outback gets me lost

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    It wouldn't be thread creep otherwise. Note that I'm NOT an administrator here, I'm just a salesman, forum poster, multiple Subaru owner, and someone who also spent too many years actually working at the plant in Indiana building these things, too. I'm in Oklahoma City. And I realize that...
  19. GPS on 2020 outback gets me lost

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    You can tell that I've been on the forums for too long at some point - what do you mean, you don't know who I am? :) I can't be an administrator either here or on the Ascent forums because of the possible conflict of interest. What was funny was when the Ascent forums ASKED me to be an...
  20. GPS on 2020 outback gets me lost

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    Um ... you do know what I do for a living, right? Don't get me wrong, I get paid on commission, but a lot of times on new cars, I'm more than happy to make my mini.
