      Haven't had an issue with light sensors and AirBlue. Rain sensors attach directly to the windshield and are tinted around (they're usually part of the rearview mirror mount).

      Roommate just got her third Outback ('10, '13, '16). It's a 2.5i Limited with Eyesight.

      Being in the flatlands, the 2.5 is more than adequate. Had it been mine, I would have sought out a 3.6.

      I really want to like these. I had one for a day and returned it for an F-150 (manufacturer's demos at work). It was a mid-range Colorado and I couldn't find a comfortable seating position. I'm sure...

      I quite enjoy the flexibility and rage of my PHEV. In the summer, I can get to work and halfway home before the engine kicks in. In the winter, I almost make it to work. I charge at work and, since...

      I ended up with the Xi3s on my 2015 C-Max Energi the night before we got nearly 14" of snow dumped on us. In the past, I've run Yokohama IG20s, Continental ExtremeWinterContacts, and a number of...

      ^This.

      I've died by one too many surveys from people angry with sales, finance, buyer's remorse, or the car itself using the process to take out their frustration on me. It affects my compensation...

      I used borrowlenses.com to rent a lens for my trip to Arizona last month. When weather delayed the arrival of the lens past the time I was due to depart, they overnighted me another one, no questions...

      When I was in college, I would take my Subaru to a quick-change oil place. I would tell them, up front, not to unscrew the first drain plug they saw as that was for the transmission; you had to reach...

      Big blocky car needs big blocky wheels. IMHO, wheels with a high metal-to-void ratio looks better on the W124s.

      Non-sequitur: Did you do the +1 camber control arm retrofit? I did that on my sister's '02 ZTW and it took care of the tire eating issue.

      After three Jettas, my roommate is on her 2nd Outback, a 2013. I'm looking forward to December when the lease is up on that, so she can get into a new one. I really liked the way the 2010 rode. They...
