      Been out of the loop for a few days...managed to catch something that has forced me to lay low for several days. :mad:

      Still not 100%, but feeling better than I was a couple days ago. :thumbup:...

      I'd agree with the lower revs approach. Recent Subarus (mine included) have a gauge that shows where you're at (mpg-wise) relative to your average mpg. No numbers on the gauge...it just provides an...

      Post pics and a story about it! I'd love to read it. I'm assuming you're doing more east coast? I'd be very interested in what you do, observations, recommendations, etc. I know I'll be heading...

      I thought about getting a trailer or a truck & camper combo. But the vehicle also has to serve as a daily driver. The fuel costs alone killed that idea pretty quick!

      I'm at 8500 miles right now,...

      I'm guessing by your screen-name that you're Korean? Or in Korea? I'm definitely heading to Seoul as part of this...just not driving there. Also heading to Australia...again not driving. ...

      Thanks!

      I was at Carson, sorta. I got there, 6 months later I deployed for a year to Afghanistan, then 9 months later I left to start this adventure. I'm basing myself now about an hour north of...

      Road Trip of a Lifetime

      Here’s the deal. I just retired from the US Army. 22 years, had some amazing experiences and met some great people, but it’s time to move on.

      So you know who’s talking, here’s me:

      I see C-Max's all the time in California. Maybe it's a regional thing, but I see them pretty much daily when I'm there. The Dart is another story...I've seen them on dealer's lots, but never see...

      My brother has one of similar mileage and year. A few weeks ago he had to replace 2 ignition coils and one injector...they went all within a couple days of each other. No other issues, so he thinks...

      LOL! Yep...beard, cargo shorts, hiking shoes...the Subie and I seem to suit each other well.

      UPDATE:

      As of today I'm sitting just a hair under 7200 miles. In Albuquerque at the moment, but...

      LOL! I'm a dude and wear flannel now and then, and I like the Indigo Girls. I guess that means I'm driving a Lesbaru. I'm ok with that...hahahaha

      I think...could be wrong on this...that the CVT's torque converter locks up around 15-20 mph and stays locked after that. I haven't read anything on torque converter programming for these things,...

      Thanks very much! I know I'll get to the east coast eventually, but it might not happen for a few months...gotta get to Australia before too long.



      The closest I've had to that would be two...

      Completely agree. But I specifically wanted a basic, simple vehicle. The heated leather butt-massaging nav systems are nice, but generally the vehicles that have those things just don't suit my...

      Yep. Also noticed it in an Outback...I think it's a quirk of the CVT. But it seems to have improved with miles...early on the transition from reverse to drive did feel quite long, but now it feels...

      I haven't heard of plans for that, but I did read that they intend to make a hybrid version. That'd be cool...more torque and mpgs.

      The Forester is nice. However it does not appeal to me at all. It's primarily an appearance thing...it looks as though Subaru's designers were told to make the most bland-looking vehicle they...
