wwest, you are out of line, and owe skid0 an apology. there is no obligation for you to listen to skid0, but at least a few of us are happy he is posting here.
#1198 of 1605 New car break-in procedure...Re: First post ever... [skid0]
Apr 29, 2012 (9:52 pm)
Just did the break-in procedure on the car as you recommended. The manual paddle shifters were indeed useful while doing this on my CVT.
Also, did google around and found this Popular Mechanics article that pretty much backs up what you recommended.
Must say I really like the car, glad to have purchased the 2012 Impreza!

I bet your gas bill is roughly half.

Not much of a racing connoisseur, but I can definitely feel that even this stock (non-WRX) has a great suspension. Steering feels awesome and isn't too sensitive or stiff...not a lot of roll either... just really fun to drive

Yup, I just filled up yesterday and calculated 27 MPG (60% highway/40% City), although I did open up the throttle a few times while on the highway. I can see this car getting better than double the mileage than my Yukon once it's broken in...

Just followed up with the dealership again - looks like my 5-door Sport Limited will be in Minneapolis on May 18. Ordered it March 20. Fingers crossed that there aren't any delays!

I've got the standard CD system on the premium, and finally took the time to figure out how to connect. The system worked fine. But the next time in the car, the connection wasn't there. Does the connection need renewal each time the car is shut off?

No, it should be automatic after it is paired the first time.

Local dealer called me at random on friday and said they just got in a '12 dark grey premium 5 door CVT. He said get here now or it will be gone tomorrow. It was the perfect one with all the right options, moonroof, alloy wheels etc. got it for around 22,900. Coming from a Saab 9-5 aero. Doesn't quite have to power but rides and drives like a dream! Such a fun car!
#1206 of 1605 Iphone connection
May 01, 2012 (7:19 am)
any one having trouble linking their iphone 4s to the usb connection?
It reads the iphone fine, but sometimes it will stop playing on certain songs. I know it's not designed specifically for the 4s, but it's practically the same iphone.
