Subaru and the NEW VW beetle
Posted 08 August 2003 - 02:52 AM
Apparently, VW owners are a lot smarter than Subaru owners to be allowed "always hot" power outlets and so on. Please understand, SHE is the one that is all a-twitter about the bug while I still cling to the Baja. I still think I enjoyed the Forester more. Is there anyway to get through to the Subaru drones that make the decisions on how to build OUR cars? Or am I gonna have to continue to rewire every darn car I buy from them?

When do you ever need to use the power outlets when the car is off!? Sure its nice, but remember, the one for the cigarette lighter is just for that. It is too small to fit a power adaptor in it.
Yeah, the radio feature is cool also, but even that shuts off after 10 or so minutes
Another neat thing VW has going for it is the fact that you can put all of the windows down just by using the key in the drivers door. Even then, how much effort extra is it to open the door and hit the button?
As for the flower vase, errrrrrrrrr, swipe one out of the Beetle and duct tape it to the Baja dashboard:rollin:
Remember, those are also made in Mexico now.....just like the Jetta, reliability stinks<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/ohwell.gif ALT=":\">

There's much much more idiots out in this world then smart people, so unfortunately car manufacturers will design a car to satisfy most of the people out there, and cover their butts.

Id be a lot happer if the Bronc's power adapter was killed with the ignition.

It should be fairly obvious why you'd want power to the outlet in the back of the car when the key is in your pocket.
Some GM cars have this nice feature that keeps the radio on until you open the door. But then they don't trust you to turn on the lights or the wipers on your own. But that lack of trust is more than deserved.
It's Hot August Nights in Reno this week so the Onboard bazooka that comes on Aston Martins sounds like a good option...
