#1044 of 1296 Does your Legacy sit low?
Apr 19, 2010 (3:08 pm)
I guess I should have checked the specs on ground clearance before posting this question, but does anyone else feel like their 2010 Legacy sits a bit low to the ground? There is one parking lot in my town that I drag going into every time. It feels like it's right around the firewall.
#1045 of 1296 Tilt steering wheel
Apr 19, 2010 (3:59 pm)
The steering wheel on my 2010 Legacy doesn't appear to have a spring assist to bring the steering wheel back up when I disengage the control lever under the steering wheel column. Is this normal? Previous cars all had a spring assist.

No, mine doesn't either, it's kind of annoying. Neither our old Forester nor my Maxima had it. To me that's more annoying than the lack of folding mirrors.
#1047 of 1296 2010 legacy 3.6 limited lease help
Apr 20, 2010 (8:58 am)
I've got numbers on a lease and wanted some feedback. It's a 2010 legacy 3.6R limited, msrp is 31146. Got them down to around 28,800. Lease offer was for 36 months, 15K miles, residual of 54%, and a money factor of .0012.
Do these sound kosher?
#1048 of 1296 Bluetooth question
Apr 21, 2010 (5:06 am)
I have an LG envy touch phone. It does not read or syc with my contacts, otherwise all works fine. Can anyone offer some guidance as to what I am doing wrong or need to do. Thank You

Does that phone have Phone Book Access (PBA) listed as one of its Bluetooth profiles? If not, contacts are usually not accessible to the in-car device. An exception seems to be certain hard wired Parrot systems that work with my non-PBA Motorola V3.
#1050 of 1296 Steering Wheel Vibration
Apr 22, 2010 (12:39 pm)
Received a call from SOA in response to my letter inquiring as to whether or not the steering wheel vibration at speeds of 60 and beyond are in any way a safety issue. I was told that it was not. They have also contacted my dealer who scheduled a Road Force Test for my vehicle . I already had a wheel balance and that did not help. Does anyone reading have any additional information or fix for the issue..Thanks
#1051 of 1296 CVT in mountains
Apr 23, 2010 (5:13 am)
How does the CVT perform in the mountains? Are there any issues with it not being able to find the "right gear" when the grades are constantly changing?
#1052 of 1296 CVT in mountains
Apr 23, 2010 (5:46 am)
Although I've only got 4500 miles on mine I've been pretty impressed with the CVT. I live in the Colorado Front Range and have driven it to various ski resorts as well as over to Salt Lake City for skiing in the Cottonwood Canyons. It's actually much less annoying than an "old fashioned" automatic, even the newer "electronic" ones.
I think the reason for the lack of a "search" effect is that by constantly seeking to find the optimum gear ratio it's changing gradually. That sentence may sound counter-intuitive; i.e. "search" vs "seek", but it's a matter of incremental change. On the order of going from 2,000 RPM to 2200, then 2300, then 2600 to arrive at point of balance. Automatics would jump from the 2,000 to 3400 RPM if that is the ratio that the next gear down would be at a given speed.
At the salesman's recommendation I loaded the wife, golf clubs and some other weight in the trunk and drove up a narrow canyon to a nearby town. This was actually because of her concern that I might not be happy with the power of a 4 cylinder after years of V8s, powerful V6s and a turbo or two. We bought the 4 cylinder Legacy.
