    You might want to double-check the links, but that post should be good to go.

    Woo hoo! Another option to bypass the profanity filter! And I’ll try to get those links fixed tonight ...
  3. Model Year 2018 and Newer Unexpected results with K&N air filter

    Engine and Drivetrain
    I’m going to close the thread for now. The mods may take further action on this later.
  4. Model Year 2018 and Newer New Crosstrek commercials ...

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    Your Golden probably wouldn't have driven a Subaru, either! An early name for the hot dog was "Dachshund Sandwich." :)

    Hey, cats are congenital psychos. If you want to film something ridiculous, all you have to do is turn on the camera and wait. ;)

    There’s a cat in this one, getting what it deserves. 😉
  7. Model Year 2018 and Newer New Crosstrek commercials ...

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    Subaru released three new Crosstrek commercials last week ... all dog-themed, of course. Might be a sign that Crosstrek sales are slowing a bit. They’re all on Subaru’s YouTube channel, but here’s the most heartwarming one of the three:
  8. Model Year 2018 and Newer Ambassadors in my area

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    As has been noted, Subaru’s intent is for Ambassador connections to be exclusively in-person. The topic you’ve brought up isn’t even supposed to be discussed on-line, and it’s not considered appropriate to ask. Sorry about that.
  9. Applies to All Model Years Where is Subaru?

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    Guys, just a reminder that we have a strict no-politics rule ... are you guys up to the challenge of a conversation on this without going into politics? :p Additional political posts here (including any that deny climate science) will be deleted and will cause the thread to be closed. As for...

    OK, we got it back. Maybe the VerticalScope algorithm thinks that chicken-shaming is too politically incorrect? FWIW, this has been happening on other VS forums, too.

    It’s probably because of that ridiculous code they added recently to protect us against so-called “unsafe“ images. I attempted to approve the image using the moderator tools, but of course it didn’t work.
  12. Applies to All Model Years This car has highest possible safety rating. It also has the most accidents in America

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    I wouldn't say that my statement was a gross generalization, at all -- nationwide motor vehicle accident statistics show that drivers in their teens and 20s are considerably more likely to be involved in accidents than older drivers. Statistically, drivers in their 60s (aka middle-aged) are...

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    Agreed that both the methodology and its presentation are seriously flawed. But even if it weren't, the key takeaway isn't that the Crosstrek specifically is on the list ... it would be the disproportionate number of smaller, entry-level, and crossover-type vehicles. Maybe it has something to...
  14. Dealer Untruth re: 2020 Crosstrek?

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    I haven’t seen those statements repeated anywhere else, at least as yet. My suggestion would be to visit a second dealership, and see if they’re willing or able to order a 2019 for you. Information on cutoff dates for model year orders is sometimes a little difficult to find online, but one way...

    The site owner is a company called VerticalScope, which is actually Canadian. (Cue the "Blame Canada" song from South Park. 😛) They have a variety of publishing/media holdings, and are best known as the owners of the Toronto Star newspaper. They have dozens of automotive internet forums, and...

    Maybe the sensitive filter will trip if someone tries to post a pic of a Yugo, or something. 😛 It makes me wonder if the site owner has ever told its IT contractor that these are actually car forums ...
  17. Does anyone else hate this new forum look?

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    I suppose the definitive poll results will evolve slowly, as we see how many of our members decide to vote with their feet. So far, those results don’t seem too encouraging. Meanwhile, with all the fixes that need doing, the site owners have decided that the forum’s most pressing need is ... a...

    Well stated, Richard. The clear lack of concern by the admins is what’s most telling, and most worrisome. It’s my understanding that at least at this point, the site owners aren’t even considering the major, necessary fixes that are being requested. Knowing that, It’s hard not to be...

    I really hate seeing this forum fade away, too ... several of us mods have each contributed many hundreds of hours to keeping the place going over the years. And for the record, when I first started playing with the site redesign I was utterly thrilled ... and I even sent our overlords a note...

    Unlike many forums, the mods here don't have access to the site stats, so I can't give you a precise number, but I can tell you that during the site's peak we were getting at least a thousand new posts a week ... so you can compare that with our present traffic. And the thing that's really...
