I got this email today. (See attached)
Can someone tell what I'm going to miss out on if I don't 're-new'? I don't understand the upside. Maybe I'm utilizing it and don't know it. Thanks in advance for the assist.

Thanks jrb,
Looks like that will cost $100. Not worth it to me. Nice to have the option I suppose.

I renewed because Subaru sent me a half off coupon when I did not respond quickly enough to the first renewal request.

I'm a little surprised by Subaru on the automatic crash notification ending with the starlink subscription, being that one of their main advertisements is safety. You would think they would give the option to have it dial 911 and not use their call center. The wife's Mazda calls 911 in the event of a crash, with no subscription.. I called and asked at one point of that seemed right and the SOA rep was speechless. But, the info on waiting and them discounting it is good info to have!

My experience with the Vehicle Health Report. In short, Subaru service had never heard of it, techs suggested not trusting it. OK. That was a shocker.

I get an emailed my Subaru report occasionally. I just ignore it. I keep better records than they do.
