    Moving On

    For the first 6 months of ownership I have fallen in love with the Subaru. Something about a Boxer Engine Growl and a great AWD system.

    Moving On

    I did finally sell the Edge a few weeks ago. Almost unbelievably to my parents. They needed something a bit bigger for when they go places together (Audi A3 is to small, Ford F-250 Too Big). They like it so far. On a sour note not less than a week after transferring the title to my parents my Subaru was rear ended thankfully no one was hurt, but now it is in the body shop and I am stuck driving a 2018 Nissan Rogue Rental. Would have much preferred the Edge to the Rogue thats for sure.

    Do You Like Your Edge?

    My Edge was enjoyable for the most part when I first got it, but I had one that had many many more issues than normal. I am still trying to sell it. It was overall very comfortable to drive and fit me well, but I do not regret moving on. I have had two bad experiences with cars from American Brands (Chevy and Now Ford). I find it humorous that both of my cars from American car companies were built in Canada, and the first car I have ever owned from a Japanese manufacturer was built in Indiana. Strange world it is.

    Gas tank recall?

    Outback is not direct injection as it will not gain it until the 2020 Model Year.

    2012 Ford Edge Limited Ecoboost For Sale

    Thank You I haven't had any hits yet but it has only been on Autotrader for 1 week. It still rides good, but I will say I am loving the Subaru thus far.

    2013 Edge speedometer needle moving bacwards.

    I had this problem start to occur about two months before the battery had to be replaced. It is one of the many signs of when the battery is going bad. I would have the battery tested and see what is said before it leaves you stranded. If it is over three years old it may be time to replace it.

    Moving On

    It is a 2012 with the Ecoboost engine not AWD. It was nice with tech and everything, but I have never really enjoyed how the transmission felt.

    Moving On

    Warranty is part of it, but how much work it needed when it was warranted was a big part of it as well. The fact that the transmission is still just not quite right also scares me quite a lot as well.

    Moving On

    Good Evening, Unless something goes wonky in the next 24 hours I will be the proud new owner of 2017 Subaru Outback 2.5 I with 29,000 Miles. I am going to sell my Edge so if I can get any suggestions on selling the car please let me know. I loved the way the car ran and how smooth it was. I will still be around here until I get the car sold and will most likely still pop in once in awhile. I can't express how gracious I am for y'alls help over the last 5 and a half years. It was just to good of a deal to pass up.

    Steering Wheel Cover

    The sun has not been kind to my steering wheel although the rest of the dash still looks immaculate (color me confused) and I am looking for a well fitting steering wheel cover that does not have to be sewn on but still looks rather nice. I would prefer to go with one color that is very similar to the grey color on the OEM steering wheel. Any suggestions would be appreciated and amazon would be preferred. Thanks in advance.

    Am I Crazy or Could This Be Done Safely

    Maybe reversing the order would be best thanks dkbrandi87 and I know people drive many more miles than this, but my Edge has been kind of temperamental at times.

    Am I Crazy or Could This Be Done Safely

    Good Afternoon, I am starting to make some Summer vacation plans and I am thinking about taking another long road trip, but this would be the longest yet. I want to drive from Odessa, TX to Redwoods National Park in California. Just some prelim information it is about 1800 mile trip one way which I would break up over 4 or 5 days. I would also spend about 7 days there and in the surrounding area and then drive back home over 4 or 5 days along a different route. On the way their I would basically take I-20 and I-10 to California and then the roads that run North/South in California around LA and Oakland/San Fransisco up to the National Park. On the way back I would take a route that would take me through Las Vegas down till I hit I-40 and then head west until I get to Albuquerque. I do not mind driving at all, but I do worry about the mileage on my Edge because it has at the moment 104,777 miles by the time this summer gets her I would expect it to have around 107,000 miles on it and this trip would add another 5,000 easily. Before anyone suggests it flying is not an option. I absolutely hate flying and to me the journey is half of the adventure. The last long trip I went on put about 3,100 miles on my car in the span of 9 days and their was no incidents with the car along the way then again the biggest city I encountered on that trip was Denver. One reason I choose Redwoods National Park is because it is further North and I would be close to Oregon so I can knock that state off my list as well as Arizona and California. I would also be able to visit the Pacific Ocean and then I would have seen both the Atlantic and the Pacific. So am I crazy or does this sound like a fun adventure. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
