6/17/215  2016 WRXs arriving, but only a few.

Most 16s have an ETA in July and are still a VON (vehicle order number), no VIN yet



6/4/15 2016 WRX, STI, Outback and Legacy finance rates announced

This early rates announcement means that Subaru doesn't expect any (or many)  left-over 2015 models to be available when the 16s are here, so Subaru is encouraging 16 orders. There wont be any year end clearance on these models. 2016 Forester information is still expected mid June
.
Outback 1.90% 24-36-48 mos, 2.90%x 60-63-72 months
Legacy
1.90% 24-36-48 mos, 2.90%x 60-63-72 months
WRX, STI 2.90%x 24-36-48-60 months

check all finance rates


6/3/15 2016 WRX and STI brochures arriving at dealers.
15 pages, with one fold out.  Order your WRX or STI now. The 16s have the 6.2" audio/infotainment which is a big improvement over the 2015 and prior systems, or upgrade to the much better 7" audio/infotainment/navigation. The STI Limited comes standard with the 7" system.



5/24/15  comment on audio systems

all models have the 6.2" audio system except the STI Limited.  There's the optional 7" system with navigation.
The 6.2" audio is a decent, low end system that's not nearly as good as the  7" audio system, even without harman kardon or navigation. Since Subaru has this high quality, easy to use 7' infotainment system, why wouldn't they just use it?


4/24/15 2016 ORDERS AVAILABLE
note: new order price and invoice in the pipeline are incorrect. This is a glitch and will be fixed, but the car has been ordered and is in the system

4/23/15 2016 WRX and STI prices, models, colors, and specs released

4/14/15 2015 WRX and STI order deadline is 4/22



2016 models  expected starting late June

RECOMMENDED MAINTENANCE 2016 WRX and STI
subject to change, correction, updating

Synthetic 5w-30  Synthetic Oil is required for all turbo engines.
Subaru brand oil is available and recommended

New Car 1000 mile break-in period
keep RPMs under 4000, vary speeds, avoid hard starts/stops

Oil Service
requires Synthetic 5w-30 oil

1st oil/filter service- replace oil and filter by 6,000 miles or 6 months.

Subsequent oil services required at least every 6,000 miles or 6 months.

With hard, severe, short trip, cold weather driving replace oil and filter every 3mos/3000 miles 

from the owner's manual
Some engine oil will be consumed while driving. Under the following conditions, oil consumption can be increased and thus require refilling between maintenance intervals:
> When the engine is new and within the break-in period
> When the engine oil is of lower quality
> When the incorrect oil viscosity is used
> When engine braking is employed
> When the engine is operated at high engine speeds
> When the engine is operated under heavy loads
> When towing a trailer
> When the engine idles for long periods of time
> When the vehicle is operated in stop and go and/or heavy traffic situations
> When the vehicle is used under severe thermal conditions
> When the vehicle accelerates and decelerates frequently
> Under these or similar conditions, you should check your oil at least every 2nd fuel fill-up and change your engine oil more frequently. If your oil consumption rate is greater than 1 quart every 1,200 miles or 1 liter every 2,000 kilometers, contact your Subaru dealer who may perform a test under controlled conditions.

Note the WRX and STI have summer tires
Summer tire and what it means tires designed for warmer temperatures and high stress use and are not good in inclement weather. The rubber compound does not maintain elasticity in cold weather. This means the grip level of the tire is less in cold temperatures even on dry pavement. In the cold a summer tire becomes unpredictable and feels slippery when cornering no matter what the weather. This problem is compounded in wet or snowy conditions. 

Rear Vision Detection System, including Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
all new, all features are new for 2016.

Standard on
STI Limited

WRX Limited manual with Option Pkg #22
WRX Limited CVT with Option Package #23



This is the first time it has been available on  a WRX

The Subaru Rear Vision Detection System (SRVD) includes Lane Change Assist (warns of vehicles approaching in the next lane), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (warns of vehicles approaching when you're backing out of a parking spot) and Blind Spot Detection (BSD)
The Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection (SRVD) system uses two radar units, each mounted underneath the sheet metal immediately below the rear taillights. To help avoid damage, the radar units are purposely mounted above the typical bumper impact line.
The radar units send out signals to detect vehicles behind and to each side of the Subaru vehicle, especially those vehicles that might not be visible in the rearview mirrors.
Lane Change Assist (LCA), at speeds over 6mph, it looks for vehicles farther back in an adjacent lane – about 220 feet behind the Subaru vehicle. If the vehicle detected is approaching quickly – at a speed that could bring it alongside the Subaru vehicle within a few seconds – Lane Change Assist will illuminate a warning icon in the exterior mirror on that side. If the driver signals a lane change, the warning icon in the mirror will flash rapidly.
Blind Spot Detection (BSD) is standard on Limiteds, optional on Premiums. At speeds over 6mph, it will illuminate a warning icon in the exterior mirror when it detects a vehicle alongside and behind the Subaru vehicle in an area of about 22 feet x 11 feet. If the driver signals a lane change to that side, the warning icon in the mirror will flash.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) uses the same radars and sensors to help detect vehicles that cannot be seen by the driver as they approach from either side. This is especially helpful when reversing from between two larger vehicles. The driver is alerted by a flashing icon in the appropriate exterior mirror, a flashing icon in the rear vision camera display, as well as an audible alert

Eyesight Driver Assist Technology
all new, all features are new for 2016.
Optional on the 2016 WRX Limited CVT with Option Package #23


This is the first time it has been available on a WRX. Its the 3rd generation Eyesight (note- 1st gen Eyesight was never offered in the US).
Its only available with the CVT transmission

Eyesight includes:


all new for Subaru Lane Keep Assist-
uses the electric power steering to help keep the car from drifting out of the lane on the highway, over app 40mph. Using turn signals or turning the steering wheel etc overrides this function
all new for WRX Eyesight models have a new, redesigned center console with an electric parking brake

Active cruise control,
Lane departure warning
Lane Keep Assist- all new for 2016
Pre-collision warning and
Pre-collision braking. 
Steering responsive fog lights


> Eyesight models have an electric parking brake
> Steering responsive fog lights uses steering wheel position to briefly turn on the left or right fog light to illuminate a corner when the vehicle is turned. Headlights have to be turned on and fog lights off for the system to work.

> Active Cruise Control combines the benefits of cruise control with active monitoring of the road ahead. It issues warnings and activates automatic braking when needed. Adaptive Cruise Control can regulate vehicle speed in order to keep a safe following distance from the vehicle ahead. It does not replace conventional cruise control, which can still be used when desired.
> Pre-Collision Braking (brake and engine function)  can recognize an impending collision, alert the driver and automatically apply the brakes to help avoid a collision or minimize the impact when a collision is inevitable.
> Pre-Collision Brake Assist (brake function, from app 7-100 mile per hour)) -  If Eyesight recognizes an impending collision and the driver is applying the brakes but not with enough force, Pre-Collision Brake Assist automatically applies up to full braking pressure in order to try to shorten braking distances.
> Pre-Collision Throttle Management (engine function) is designed to help prevent drivers from accelerating into a stopped vehicle or other obstacle in front of them. It warns the driver and reduces engine power until he or she applies the brakes to avoid an impact.
> Lead Vehicle Start Alert (beep function)  is a helpful EyeSight feature that alerts the driver when his or her vehicle remains stopped after a vehicle in front has started to move away, going at least app 10ft
> Lane Departure Warning (beep function, over app 30mph) alerts drivers when they unintentionally move out of their travel lane. It takes no corrective vehicle action other than issuing visual and audible warnings. Works over app 30mph
>
Lane Keep Assist (steering function) is a new addition to Subaru Eyesight. It uses the electric power steering to help keep the car from drifting out of the lane on the highway. Using turn signals or deliberately turning the steering wheel overrides this function. If you drive on freeways above app 40-90 miles per hour and the vehcile is about to depart from the lane, the system assists the steering operation by turning it in a direction that will prevent the lane departure. Driver control of the steering wheel, brakes, turn signals and gas pedal will override this steering function.
> Lane Sway Warning (beep function, over app 38mph) acts in a similar way, detecting unusual back and forth vehicle movement within the lane of travel. Lane Sway Warning operates at speeds over app 38 mph.

Eyesight cars have three windshield washer squirters, with the middle one to clean in front of the cameras.
The camera’s field of view is about 35 degrees horizontally from the center of the windshield.
The camera’s field of vision extends up to about 360 feet in front of the vehicle, but objects very close to the vehicle may not be detected
EyeSight works to recognize obstacles up to about a 30-mph (or less) speed differential. Essentially, EyeSight needs time to recognize an object or potential obstacle. If the speed difference between the EyeSight vehicle and the object is greater than up to 30 mph, the object will likely not be detected.

Note- do not touch or try to clean the EyeSight camera lenses. It is imperative that extra precaution be used when cleaning the inside of the windshield, because over-spray from cleaners may impair or even damage the cameras’ lenses, which is not a warranty issue

 What is...

  HD radio

HD Radio is free. its a digital radio broadcast signal with 'subchannels' of the main channel you are listening to.
The ‘HD’ in ‘HD Radio’ is part of iBiquity Digital’s brand name for its digital AM and FM radio technology.
HD is not an acronym for either hybrid digital or high definition, it is simply the name for this technology.
HD Radio broadcasting is free, there are no subscription fees.
The HD channels are not particularly strong, so you might lose the signal in garages or in mountains or downtown between buildings.
The service includes iTunes Tagging which lets you capture information about a song on the radio and store it on your Apple device by pushing the "Tag" button on the HD Radio receiver. When your device is connected to iTunes, a list of tagged songs will appear which can be purchased.
HD radio website, check stations etc

How to get a car
inventory, or dealer trade, or ordering

Inventory -   Dealers are offered inventory a month or so in advance. The quantity and models can vary from month to month. Most cars will have a  extra options or upgrades, features that are popular in the area.  Some, but only a few, will not have any extras at all.
Cars in stock are available for immediate purchase and dealers might be more motivated to move them.

"Dealer trade" or "locate". This is when a dealer looks for a vehicle in another local dealer's inventory and then trades cars, ie swaps cars, with that dealer.
This means the requesting dealer has to have a car the other dealer will accept back in trade.
There are many people involved in this process, both at the dealerships, banks which hold the titles to the cars, and at Subaru which tracks the cars.
The vehicle is usually driven from the other location. This can take place within days if a vehicle is already in stock someplace.

Pre-sell, incoming: You wait for a vehicle the dealer already has incoming in their system.

Order:
If you really want a specific vehicle, you can order it. Subaru requires customer information and a deposit.
Once ordered Subaru will give an expected delivery Month.
There will be date, an ETA, an estimated time of arrival.  This is not a promise the car will there on a specific day or week and the frequently changes. Your dealer can watch for updates.

Orders are filled as the right model, transmission, and color is available, on a first in basis.
The time is takes to get ban order varies and delays can happen at any point along the assembly and shipping process, so be patient.
If you are requesting a popular car with a waiting list, or an uncommon car,  it can take longer.

If a certain individual option or accessory is not available for installation, the car will still be sent to the dealer. The accessory can then be added by the dealer but the cost might change.
