May 8, 2008 about Subaru Impreza

I was driving from Northern Indiana to Indianapolis and the gas light came on around a 1/4 tank. I continued to drive for around 100 miles before I stopped and got gas. I ended up putting about 14.7 gallons of gas in. IIRC it is a 14.9 gallon tank, so it's a good thing I stopped.

It actually has a 15.9 gallon tank. If the light came on at 1/4 of a tank then something is wrong!

WRX's are infamous for gas gauges reading high or low for some reason.. just keep track of your trip mileage and how much you fillup.

I actually think the car would have been a hit and I was very pitadpoinsed when it wasn't produced. We had a Subarua0Forester for a few days back in early 2006 and, apart from its small size, we were very impressed with it. The Tribeca's styling or lack of was hideous. But the Saab (mostly) fixed that, and yes, I can remember an interview with a Subaru person saying that the Tribeca facelift was based on the 9-6.Subaru was going through a phase of silver plastic dashboards and the Forester was no different. In real life, it worked fine. And I don't think we can really give out about dashboards well, my opinion at least!a0J Fan
