  1. Model Year 2018 and Newer How to disable Starlink in 2019 models?

    Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    Not that hard to believe at all! The current HU has only been in the Crosstrek since '18. So we're on only on the second model year, until the '20s start to sell in large numbers. Very, very people would swap out such a complex, expensive, integrated HU in a car that is only a year or sold...
  2. 4WD vs. AWD: What’s the Difference?

    Non-Subaru Car Talk
    I've seen lots of different versions of the terms. Here's an official Subaru explanation from a quick Google search: https://www.subaru.com.au/car-advice/awd-vs-4wd
  3. Model Year 2018 and Newer How to disable Starlink in 2019 models?

    Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    I hope he didn't do that! He's probably gone off the grid so we can't track him... 😸
  4. Model Year 2018 and Newer How to disable Starlink in 2019 models?

    Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    Then that would be an even easier test than what I proposed above. Just pull the HU, disconnect it and see what still works... 😸
  5. Model Year 2012 to 2017 Dash cam mounting points (EyeSight)

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    FYI, I've replaced ours since my last post here with a Blackvue 4K and this time have it at the top right on the driver side. It's a more central view of he road (actually the driver's view) and is still out of the way of Eyesight. On the left wouldn't work because the gestures are on the left...
  6. Model Year 2018 and Newer Cargo light upgrade issues

    Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    Lots of us have done it without issues... It has to do with interference from the LED but I doubt it would have much effect unless the fob was right next to the LED...
  7. Model Year 2018 and Newer It Sure Looks Good

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    We can get that, or better, going down a mountain... 😸
  8. Model Year 2018 and Newer Which Warranties For A Low Miles/Year Driver?

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    Bear in mind that the lower end plans don't cover the electronics...
  9. Model Year 2018 and Newer CVT warranty extended for the 2018 Crosstrek 10 yrs/100K miles

    Engine and Drivetrain
    Yeah, I wonder what the threshold for a recall is, and who polices that and why, for example, there was a recall because of the HU losing radio presets but not the CVT six years ago?
  10. Model Year 2018 and Newer About to buy - Limited vs Premium? Seat adjustment/wheels/sound system

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    My guess is that you got the non nav version, also without HK... Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  11. Model Year 2018 and Newer Which Warranties For A Low Miles/Year Driver?

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    Good point, FL, that I forgot to mention. You can buy the Subaru warranty at any time up until the 3yr warranty expires. Another point that a lot of folk seem to miss is that brakes and wiper blades are included in the first three years. Some dealers try to sell you new blades when they know...
  12. Model Year 2018 and Newer Which Warranties For A Low Miles/Year Driver?

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    There are lots of differing opinions here regarding extended warranties. I'm in the camp that they are worth it with modern cars that have so many complex and expensive electronic systems, if you intend to keep the car a long time (as we do). I can't imagine what it would cost to replace the...
  13. Applies to All Model Years What did you do to your Subaru today???

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    That lens isn't going to stay clean for long... 😸
  14. Model Year 2018 and Newer Shuddering, hesitation, etc. still an issue?

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    We both noticed a little hesitation when we first got the car but nothing to be concerned about. We also have a PedalCommander that was originally purchased to try to help with the gas mileage around town but is now used in Sport Mode to improve the responsiveness. I don't recall noticing the...

    I just experienced that on another post that was very long, with pics. It's as if the clickable area is offset from the link.
  16. Model Year 2018 and Newer In Car WiFi as hotspot

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    This has been discussed in other threads - with the right harness you can retain some of the controls (e.g. steering wheel volume buttons) but you lose the system settings and other integration with the car. Have you asked your dealer's service or parts department about the Wi-Fi module?

    LMAO... Any idea why the fuse blew?
  18. Model Year 2018 and Newer About to buy - Limited vs Premium? Seat adjustment/wheels/sound system

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    Good point! We have a running joke here - if I suggest that OAK (Other AstroKat) take my car for something she whines that it will mean she'll have to take her keys out of her purse to open and start the car. Such a First World problem... 😸
  19. Model Year 2018 and Newer Upgrading Sound System in a Premium - How difficult/time intensive for a non-tinkerer?

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    Yeah, it's odd that they bundle the HK audio upgrade with nav. It may be that Harman Industries required that to sell more of their nav units. We have it and never use the onboard nav. It seems to me that if you want better audio and don't want to do your own mods (or pay someone) then get the...
  20. Model Year 2018 and Newer Describe ride comfort of Crosstrek Premium

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    LOL, for us it was the 8" screen - that's over a grand per inch... 😸
