On Tire Rack there are few reviews since the tire is fairly limited to specific new models. But overall are positive, one of them is mine. Because it took over 6 months to get my Legacy and I have always had a perception that the original tires would not be the best I checked out multiple versions that I might replace them with.Even though this Avid is not rated highly I can deal with it until they have about 20k on them.
Seriously? It simply is a location to access the system so that the auto stop setting can be remembered.You’re suggesting people plug into one of the EyeSight cameras? Thanks, no. I’ll deal with the hassle of turning it off manually before jury rigging (this, BTW, is most certainly a hack despite what they say) a connection that’s critical for the most important safety improvement in decades. I’m betting these guys have some disclaimer that says you’re on your own if something goes wrong. Thanks. No.
I get that, but I don't see why one would need the car to constantly connect to the wifi just to check for updates. Those updates are not super common, maybe a couple times a year?Thats how Subaru says they will send some updates. I have yet to see anything on my 2021 Touring XT. Even my maps say up to date.
But your insurance company could claim the non-Subaru device plugged into the eyesight system caused the collision avoidance system to fail and deny your claim.If you rear end someone you're almost always at fault no matter what, eyesight or no eyesight, unless someone else hit you from behind and then again eyesight is irrelevant.
Gee that's funny I wonder how many cars don't have eyesight? It's not like it's an NHSTA mandated safety feature. It's an option. Besides, the chance of the auto-stop eliminator affecting eyesight is extremely small. You're more likely to affect your ability to stop by using non OEM wheels or tires.
Or base your rate on the system working as designed.. then say you modified a safety sysyem. I have seen issues with after market bumpers causing extensive damag. Insurance companys saying your not cover because of the non noted modifications.
Sorry to say that while that is a reasonable assumption, it seems like it's purely speculative on your part considering that you can turn off pre collision braking. Hardly seems like something an insurance company can hold your feet to the fire for when you can easily turn it off completely. Your experience is no doubt valid, but I think it's negated in this case.
Some folks just don't want to believe this sort of thing occurs. I saw it about 30 years ago when a friend of mine crashed a plane he had just bought. Both he and his passenger were killed. Investigators found an unapproved modification. The attorneys for the passenger's family had a field day filing lawsuits.Or base your rate on the system working as designed.. then say you modified a safety sysyem.

But lawyers do. They love to look in to modifications when the damage is outside the norm. But what do i know i just work for tow company. I see our company payments held up because of litigation. All cars have black boxes that record crash data. Think of all the malfunctions that have caused crashes that manufactures are held liable for.The FAA has nothing to do with automobile accidents last I heard.
