So I know nothing about Subaru's... just trying to help out a lady friend with her car. She doesn't have internet or know about car forums...
So here's the deal. She bought a 2011 2.5i Impreza wagon and is looking for a roof rack that can carry two kayaks... maybe her bike.
I didn't understand her text but maybe this will make sense to you guys... When I asked her about her roof and whether or not is was completely clean or had some factory trim/molding etc she said this...
"There are built in spots to hook a certain kind of crossbar rack onto the car."
AHAHHA whatever that means.
Well thanks in advance
Need some opinions on this. I'm looking to upgrade the wheels on my '08 Outback (like the one pictured below)
I cant decide if I want to go with LL Bean wheels or 2009-2010 WRX wheels. Both are 17x7 and would be mounted with Yokohama Geolandars ATS
LL Bean wheels, no doubt. Especially make sure they're the actual Gunmetal color LL Bean ones and not just the regular silver painted versions.
25 mpg overall is optimistic.
Here's my old Forester's fuelly stats (granted, it was for only six months - but my entire ownership retained similar numbers):
As far as maintenance/reliability goes? It was excellent. The only thing outside of normal maintenance ours needed in 11 years was rear wheel bearings and a new cat.
