    But before going to another dealer, you might want to reinstall the factory one if it's not too much of a problem to do so.

    And it's one product for both plastics and paint. You can even use it on your lights! Heck, I've used it on some furniture and it turned out smoooothhh.... :)

    I've seen people driving Prius as well as small subcompacts (ie like Nissan Micra) in a spirited fashion (border line crazy consideirng what they are driving) so driving a Crosstrek in a spirited...

    That's pretty much standard when it comes to fluid service intervals. In Canada, for some reason, the OEMs like to use what's considered severe service intervals in the US even though the majority...

    I realize that the resistor was previously done but do you know for sure it works? When troubleshooting, I always like to double back once in a while to verify what I believe is true is, in fact,...

    You can also flush it ... yes, I know that flushing is supposed to be bad and costly but hey, it's broken anyway, right?

    That's insane! I could understand a small premium as the local dealers really have the consumers over a barrel but as the price increases, it actually pays for the consumer to go further out into...

    I don't believe it's got anything to do with volume as higher volume areas should be hit more as there would be more cars on the road to service.

    The primary issue is probably dealer based and how...

    You should also check the air intake vents just under the windshield wipers to be sure that they are free and clear... Given how much (*^*&!! you have on your cabin air filter, you might have some...

    Chances are you can probably swap in another MY's transmission as long as you swap a few additional parts that make the MY13 unique. I would have a look at the parts diagram between the MY13 and...

    Even if you don't DIY the change, a lot of places will allow you to bring your own oil instead of buying theirs!

    There's always going to be a few great dealers out there and they should be celebrated! Unfortunately, there are at least just as many poor dealers that do exactly the opposite of the great dealers!

    Hmmm... that sounds pretty bad that they don't have fuses or an unlisted rating. I guess the next thing would be is to put them on a bench power supply and measure the current draw on them.

    I'm assuming that all 5 have fuses in them, correct? It would be interesting to see what those fuses are rated at... After all, if the internal fuse of the devices are rated smaller than the 12V...

    I can understand your feelings on the subject.

    I suspect that the real problem is the shortage of workers in general with the current low unemployment rates AND the dealers being cheap and not paying out enough to the techs that they do have in...

    Congrats on your first post!

    The design of these things basically hasn't changed for decades and fuses don't blow for reason at all. Typically, fuses blow when the device is drawing too much...

    Exactly!

    The cost difference between the two is nothing compared with the time you will use to actually install it.
