Default Subarus on The Wharf

Going about my business on the wharfs this morning and i find a new shipment of Subarus. I dont like the XT much, it actually looks better in a pic than to the naked eye, but hey i will never have the money or the want to own one anyway.

Check out all those controls on the steering wheel!

The new SJ XTs are having probs with air inlet clamps not being done up tight, causing missing, knocking & the ECU basically spitting the dummy due to bad sensor readings. pretty poor in a brand new car

Thanks, Tony.

It looks as if it has an even worse front overhang/approach angle than SWMBO's SH ... Hard to tell from a photo though.

You're not wrong
If I counted right, there's 18x of them. The warranty would expire before I learnt how to use them all

I do like the blue sports pedals though
Since mine are starting to wear, I might have to get a set for myself, if they're available for manuals
I also agree re the front overhang. But a pic doesn't always show it truly.

Regards
Mr Turbo

I think the blue is a plastic protective cover, check the dead pedal, it is silver. I know those pedals are available for your car in the US mr t. If you can't find any down there, let me know and I'll help out.
