Firm chance of purchasing a 2019 Outback next year.

Got a customer with the 2018. Seems pretty nice, firmer ride than I like tho. Damn thing tried to stop as I was pulling it up on the hoist. Guess their warning system saw the ramps or some such as a threat. Fucking silly.

Has Subaru fixed their head gasket problems (for real) yet?

I'm a curmudgeon who dislikes assistive devices on vehicles. I actually like driving my vehicle

Far too many people regard driving as a chore.  I can only hope that those people either get bus passes or autonomous cars sooner rather than later because I'm fucking dead ass tired of some dipshit sitting like a dingus at a green light for more than 5s because they're too busy texting or sitting in the left lane next to a semi with 30 people bumper to bumper behind them on the goddamned interstate.

Compared to that bullshit, i don't give a fuck about headlights.

No, they have not. It's utter bullshit, and if they were a domestic car company, people would be shitting all over them for it. And rightly so. Going on 20 years with this bullshit and they casually ignore it. It's garbage.

Good to know. I know a lot of people have asked me if Subaru is an ok car and I tell them theyíre fine new if you can stand the cost and fine used if you get them cheap enough or are budgeted for the head gasket job + oil consumption issues after 100k. My parents 1985 model didnít have this issue and I feel itís stupid they havenít fixed it yet.

So I went test driving a few cars today (looking for something with AWD and a bit more ground clearance than my GTI for winter driving).

Test drove a plug-in Hybrid Mitsubishi Outlander that I really liked. Thinking of getting it on a lease (as it will be my second car).

Also test drove a 2015 Volvo XC60 that only had 15,500 miles on it and was $29k. It was REALLY NICE, but would have to buy it outright and it gets kinda poo gas mileage compared to the above equivalent which was almost as comfy of a ride.

100k is so far in the future.

So I test drove a new VW Tiguan 4motion today.

I liked it. It rides nice and has very little road noise. The engine is pretty loud when accelerating through the low gears but then gets super quiet afterwards would have been my only complaint.

Going to test drive some Audis on Saturday (closest dealership is an hour away).

Or 2 years for one my customers with an Impreza. He drives for Uber tho, so I'm sure that's affecting it. Still. 50k a year. Holy fuck. My ass would be sore.

I hit 100k after 5 years, after 11 I'm just over 200K miles.

My seat is wearing out.

It's still the weak point of the engine, but they switched from a graphite covered gasket to a Multi layerd Steel (MLS) gasket and now it's much less of a problem than it used to be.

My seat is wearing out.
I'm getting a worn spot that is just starting to wear through, where a spring near the airbag on the driver's seat is too close to the surface. Considering buying some seat covers. These guys seem to make decent covers for the FJ, based on a few things I've seen online: https://www.clazzio.com/leather-type.php

Though I'm more inclined to get these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000JOP020/

The Outback will actually be for the boy since he turns 15 next month (as does F13!), as well as being our 4-wheel-drive vehicle.  It will be the 4th vehicle in the yard, so I figure it will take a while to hit 100k miles.

15. That's amazing. F13 has outlasted Lum's and all the Lum spinoffs put together.

Out of curiosity, what is the state of the diaspora right now?  Here and brokenforum are all that I know of.  Anything else out there?  Any drama/news lately on former members?  I donít follow anything other than what happens across this forum.
