  1. Hi All, My wife is looking at upgrading Outbacks and I need some help. We currently have a 2012 Outback which is very nice, but does not have modern safety features. She found a well priced 2014 Outback Limited 3.6R. The description of this car lists: EyeSight System, follow distance indicator, lead vehicle indicator, lane departure and sway indicator, pre-collision indicator, adaptive cruise control, back-up camera display in center console. It does NOT appear to have warning of cars in blind spot. It was my understanding that most of these features began in 2016. If not this 2014 Outback, we were looking at a 2017 or 2018 with these safety features (and possibly more). Is this 2014 on a reasonable par with the newer cars, or should we really hold out and buy the newer model? The price is very good for the 2014, but we can spend more if necessary. I will add, the 2014 appears to be a special order vehicle and has a special appearance package and EyeSight - and every other bell & whistle - it was a top of the line vehicle. Thoughts ???? Thanks. Craig
  2. We just got a 2016 Forester 2.5i. I have found that the volume of the alerts from the Eyesight system (lane changing etc.) are very low, and too soft to hear over a radio. I have followed the manual for adjusting the volume from 2 (default) to 3 (maximum). This defeats the purpose of the Eyesight alerts for tired drivers. They will probably have the radio on to help stay awake, and therefore not even hear the alerts as they occur. It seems the volume was much louder on older versions of Eyesight, but making it too quiet, was not a solution. Any suggestions are appreciated. - Lee
  3. I want to see Ford and Subaru enter into a 50/50 joint venture to develop and bring to market a vehicle of the following classes and specifications: Ford Mid-Size Pick Up, Full-Time Subaru Power Distribution AWD Sold as Ford with a Ford Engine and a Subaru with a Subaru Engine, both in diesel and hybrid variants, as well as fuel-cell and full electric in a sub-partnership with Tesla to work interchangeably with his battery stations. Not quite the same as Ford and Mazda, but that is another great partnership to pursue if Subaru is not interested. If not then Hyundai, or Honda, or even Toyota in an ingenious plan to profit from the 2 best-selling mid-size pickups... if you see where I am going with this. Ford Ultimate 5-star Safety NHTSA & IIHS, small-overlap and roof deflection rollover, Off-road Version would be the Godzilla Ecobeast Ford power plant 3.5V6 & 2.7V4 that came on a truck designed to plow through deep water and maintain constant traction through wet snow and soak up monster pot holes on a suspension designed for Baja racing and 305/75R18 tires and a manual transmission and Subaru Eyesight technology stock. 30mpg Real World Combined MPG in baby beast = target. Subaru Ultimate5-star Safety NHTSA & IIHS, small-overlap and roof deflection rollover, Off-road Version would be the Super-Boxer Turbo I4 & Flat 6 that came on a truck designed to plow through deep water and maintain constant traction through wet snow and soak up monster pot holes on a suspension designed for Rally racing and 305/75R18 tires and a manual transmission and Subaru Eyesight technology stock. 32 mpg Real World Combined MPG in Super Boxer Turbo 4 = target. AWD, All the time, courtesy of Subaru power distribution system in all models. Ford Body on Frame ruggedness & Towing & Technology. Subaru Rally Suspension and Power Distribution and Safety and Reliability. Subaru based Ford built Diesel and Diesel Hybrid and Ford based Subaru built fuel-cell & Tesla battery electric, and other variants to continually challenge the design teams to renew the partnership and inspire ingenuity in simplicity. These to be shared in greater detail in subsequent posts. Blend design elements of the Forester with the South American / Australian Ford Ranger that is current model not available in the United States. Must be available in both Crew Cab Ecobeasts a Manual 7 speed transmission with super-cruise overdrive for peak highway mpg whenever total payload is less than 500 pounds. The Subaru Variant should be available with Subaru boxer engines with turbos and superchargers in the Rally variants. They should compete in a Youtube contest of competitions and reviews in the style of TopGear with me as Special Guest Star & Quality Assurance Director for the Ford Subaru Joint Venture in charge of all testing and racing and special duty versions. The offroad version crew cab especially needs to trounce the TRD Tacoma, Nissan ProX, and Chevy/GMC competitors, while getting better gas mileage. Make a Remove-able Hard and soft top for the bed, flat and cap to cover the bed. The bed with cap should strive to be large enough to transport a Lazy-boy chair safely in the middle of a blizzard. And when opened or folded up and the tailgate lowered a sofa or queen size mattress, box-spring, headboard, and frame. There should be a snow-plow prepped package for both versions, separate and including a plow, torture tested in severe duty to breaking points plowing snow. This and the off-road versions should have the option for a built in winch behind one or both bumpers for self extraction from bottoming out and high middling the truck in snow or mud. Must include Subaru Eyesight technology in all models. This should be built in a union shop in Detroit and Ohio by Ford, and by a union-constructed Subaru Advanced Development built in a new facility in West Chester County, NY along the natural transit of the Hudson River to focus on alternative energy performance and design, and built there in a union shop, and in Japan, and in other locations as prudence dictates. Can we make this happen? How do we go about making this dream come true? I should finally get to use my Masters in Project Management and serve as the Project Director with ultimate decision authority on the joint elements of the project. Imagine how enthusiastic both Ranger fans and Brat fans would be here in the United States! -- Best Regards, Thomas Moore
