I would not have been happy to see a dent on a brand new car before I even got to drive it, but would give the dealer a chance to make it right. If there's no sign of it after it's fixed, I would be satisfied.Hi Everyone,
What would you have done? To be fair the dent is very small and no scratch, it is just a little indented and noticed it after inspecting the vehicle with a fine tooth comb. I got lease protection (wear pass) and they said they would note the dent officially.
Anyways that aside high everyone! Now that I have driven it for a few hours I have the NooB questions
1) How does the outback 3.6L warm up in the winter? Is it quick and is it loud? That was a major issues with the Forester.
2) Is there a way of muting the mic during a call? I do a lot of conference calls.
3) Is there any benefit to the performance with adding above regular fuel?
4) Are there any other cool things I should know about?
As for your NooB questions...
1) It seemed to warm up pretty quickly, even in -20C temps. Didn't notice abnormal noise. In the meantime if you have the heated steering wheel and seats, that helps.
2) There is a mute function on the infotainment screen, no button on the steering wheel. I haven't used it, so check the manual!
3) Manual says minimum 87 octane, so not really; but... using tier 1 gasoline might be something to consider.
4) There's a lot of technology in many new cars these days, so you may or may not agree with the way the designers programmed the behaviour of some systems. Just read some of the threads here about the radio, for example. The adventure is figuring out all the 'quirks'.
