I really hate that you can't get oil pressure gauges or voltmeters in newer cars today, but I've come to expect temperature gauges. Alas, the new 2011 Outback (I suspect the 2010 version as well) comes with an "electronic version" of an vacuum gauge in lieu of a temperature gauge. Now a vacuum gauge is a nice-to-have after you have the other 3, but this turns out to be the most useless gauge Subaru can offer.

My question, has anyone installed any gauges in their 2010 or 11 Outback? If so, where did you put them and what diameter did you use? I'm thinking if they're small enough that they could fit under the silver door in the middle if the dash under the radio. The dash is busy, so I wouldn't think that you could get more that 2 (if any). I really hate going back to depending on idiot lights. Thanks.

.. VDO/siemens makes some nice gauges but difficult to find..I personally like this gauge and will be installing in my subaru since I will be keeping the car for the long run.. my wife never looks at the gauges and has already burned up one motor..the same for my son in law who also burned up a motor (driving till they sieze)...both occassions a closed thermostat..this gauge comes with the idiot lite..buzzer and the ability for own settings .. http://prosportgauge...clear-lens.aspx..sorry wrong pic..you will have to look for the coolant temp gauge ..
