#3 of 149 Subaru vent shades ?
Mar 04, 2007 (12:46 pm)
Can anyone tell me if they make window vent shades for a 95' subaru legacy wagon ? I have been looking for one online but haven't come up with anything. I was told by a friend that they are avaible.

Do you mean Rain Guards? I am not sure what a window vent shade is?

yes I guess you could call them rain guards too. In the old days say in the 50's I know they called them vent shades. They go above your windows, a nice feature when wanting to keep rain, snow, etc out of the car. Also I am told they help with wind noise on those frameless subaru doors.

I also have a new OB 06, but I'm not thinking on putting extras other than the ski rack when season calls, and maybe a hitch for the bikes. Why? Well, I had a Civic with a bra, and was a pain to put on after taking it off. Its not hard to do it, but after 2 or 3 times (that you will, especially when you feel it dirty), you will think you have wasted your money. About the deflector, I would argue against if you have to make a hole in your car. Don't play with corrosion.
The best investment, if you can afford, is the 3M film. Look at this article: http://www.automotivearticles.com/Clear_Bra_3M.shtml, or just google some info. No bugs anymore. Some years ago, the crazy people of Car and Driver even went to the north pole with something like it (think it was the same), and it was a marvel
#10 of 149 06 Outback Bicycle Hitch
Oct 06, 2006 (4:47 am)
I just bought a 2006 Outback and found that I cannot continue to use the bike rack that mounts to the back of the vehicle. I was faced with the dilema...roof rack or hitch mount. Current research (internet searches and word of mouth) tell me that I am better off with a hitch mounted one. It will be easier for me to handle by myself. I find a lot of discontent with the Subaru hitch (you cannot use thule locks etc. take a look at the discussion www.idealog.us/2006/04/subaru_hitch_mo.html
Has anyone used UHaul? What does the hitch look like....Subaru says we "void" warranty if we attach a hitch that is not their's? What could happen?
