Watch Now: Subaru Eyesight Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist

By | Subaru News | No Comments

Watch Now: Subaru Eyesight Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist! If you have a Subaru, you may already be familiar with all the amazing features of their Eyesight system. We’ve shared before that Eyesight reduces rear-end collisions by 84% and crashes by 61% according to a Japanese study. Even more recently, we shared that Subaru plans to roll out an improved Eyesight system writing:

“Subaru is rolling out an updated version of its EyeSight safety system this summer in Japan. The update, dubbed “Touring Assist” will provide limited self-driving capabilities on the highway and during low-speed traffic jams. The new function is camera-based, allowing it to automatically steer a car around curves by tracking lane markings and the car ahead. Currently, it will only appear on the Japanese Lavorg wagon and the S4 sedan, a Japanese version of the WRX. The assist still requires a hand on the wheel and will begin making warning sounds if the driver lets go for 10 seconds and eventually the auto-steer function disengages.”

In a newly released video, Subaru further explains about its feature for Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist. Check out the full video below:

Having trouble with your Eyesight? Subaru requires OEM windshield replacement for this feature to properly work. Learn more here. For more Subaru News, follow Wilde Subaru on Twitter or Like us on Facebook.

A Bearly Driver Crashes Forester in Colorado

A Bearly Driver Crashes Forester in Colorado

By | Subaru News | No Comments

A Bearly Driver Crashes Forester in Colorado! When Bears Drive… or is the saying when pigs fly? Regardless, this isn’t the first time we’ve shared about bears and their penchant for breaking into Subarus for a little fun. Last time, a high school student found her unlocked car destroyed by a bear in Jefferson County, Colorado, but it seems this time a bear went joyriding in a Subaru Forester on a normal day in Durango County, Colorado. 

Last Friday a bear broke into a Subaru Forester, rolling it out of the driveway before crashing it into a neighboring mailbox across the street. The loud noises woke Ron Cornelius and his wife up, who no doubt hoped they might still be dreaming when they discovered their trashed Subaru and the unlikely culprit, who could bearly drive. 

“Usually, I don’t get up at 5 o’clock unless there is a bear driving a car down the street,” Cornelius joked. “After the bear broke into the car, it likely released the parking brake somehow.”

I’m sure they also wondered if this is covered by insurance (i’m guessing it falls under the “other” category). Although the couple didn’t see the bear leave the car, La Plata County Sheriff’s Office deputies deductively concluded a bear was to blame after finding fecal matter in the car, probably due to the bear’s nervousness. Or maybe dislike for the vehicle, because the bear also managed to pull the steering wheel straight off the shaft, rip the radio out of the dash and bust through the back window. At the end of the day, it makes you wonder… what is going on in Colorado?

August is Wilde Subaru Loves Learning Month

August is Wilde Subaru Loves Learning Month

By | Subaru News | No Comments

August is Wilde Subaru Loves Learning Month! Subaru loves to give back, and at Wilde Subaru, we look forward to giving back as part of Subaru’s love promise. In April, as part of Subaru Loves to Care, we were pleased to donate blankets to cancer patients at UW Prohealth Care in partnership with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Wisconsin. This month is Subaru Loves Learning month and as part of this partnership, Subaru is working with the American Association for the Advancement of Science to provide students with award-winning science books. According to AAAS, 80% of the fastest-growing jobs in the U.S. are in the fields of science, and only 36% of high school students are ready for college level science.

Wilde Subaru, along with 476 other retailers, will help support the effort of donating 76,000 K-12 science books, by offering customers the chance to donate a science book in their name with an inspirational message for young learners. The students will also receive a free after-school science booklet that offers kids a chance to learn fun scientific concepts through self-conducted science experiments easy enough for non-scientist adults to supervise. 

“At Subaru, we support every student’s right to education and support organizations dedicated to making learning as accessible as possible,” said Thomas J. Doll, president and COO of Subaru of America, Inc. “We are proud to work with the American Association for the Advancement of Science to engage the next generation in the wonderful world of science and inspire curious minds to explore and prepare for the many opportunities a passion for science can lead.”

Does Subaru Owe You A Transmission Repair?

Does Subaru Owe You A Transmission Repair?

By | Subaru News | No Comments

Does Subaru Owe You A Transmission Repair? A few years ago we reported that Subaru did by right by customers in a lawsuit over oil consumption, but now it seems Subaru may be dishing out another fix after another lawsuit. This time it regards the transmission. According to reporting by Forbes, owners of Subaru who paid for repairs to their continuously variable transmissions will have until October 31st to ask the automaker for a reimbursement. To receive this reimbursement a copy of the invoice and proof of payment must be provided. This offer is part of Subaru extending transmission warranty on about 1.5 million vehicles in the United States and covers:

  • 2010-2015 Legacy and Outback
  • 2015 Legacy and Outback with 3.6 liter V-6
  • the 2012-2015 Impreza; 2013-2015 Crosstrek
  • 2014-2015 Crosstrek Hybrid
  • 2014-2015 Forester with 2.5 liter 4-cylinder
  • 2014-2015 Forester with turbocharged 2.0 liter four cylinder
  • 2015 WRX 2.0

This new warranty is 10 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first, while the regular warrant was 5 years or 60,000 miles. Vehicles have higher mileage have a one-year extension, ending July 31, 2018. Subaru sent a letter which explains eligibility:

  • You must have paid an out-of-pocket expense for repair or replacement of the CVT. This includes any deductible expense or partial reimbursement for repairs.
  • If you have been previously reimbursed by SOA or retailer for partial coverage of this repair, only the portion that has not been reimbursed is eligible for reimbursement.
  • You are not eligible to recover any repair costs previously reimbursed or paid for by any third party including Subaru Added Security, other extended warranty providers, or an authorized Subaru retailer.

Reimbursement forms are available here. Call us with any questions at (262) 970-7575. For more Subaru News, follow Wilde Subaru on Twitter or Like us on Facebook.
