Remember that you have to add winter air. Tires "lose" pressure as the temperature decreases.

I got the email and just got the follow up letter . Gonna call tomorrow. My letter does not have the word"recall" anywhere, Just "service program WQC-39" at the top.

So far they have been good. When they do get bad, DWS is next in line, but I'll take a look at the Michelins too. They've always had a good rep.

The Impreza sedan scored even better, top of its class.
Forester did well, Outback did well.
Straight A report card, basically.

Yes, I noticed that. I'm trying to figure out why the Impeza sedan scored higher than the hatchback in reliability. What about the sedan is more reliable than the hatchback?
Ah, I just looked it up on the CR web site. Apparently the hatchback has more Squeaks & Rattles than the sedan. Interesting.

Just a SWAG, but....
Smaller passenger compartment could mean less wind noise.
Sedans are more aerodynamic, also, for better fuel economy.
Trunks seal better than hatches.
Then I read your 2nd sentence and yeah, that's it.
#1564 of 1605 Side cargo nets
Nov 10, 2012 (11:30 am)
Has anyone installed the side cargo nets on a '12 Impreza hatchback? You have to drill a hole and the instructions suck. There's a small indention a little below the cargo cover. Is that it? Do you drill 2 holes in the same spot? First 1/4 then 1/2? I only have a 3/8 drill motor so I have to get a 1/2 drill bit with a 3/8 reduced shank or borrow a 1/2 drill motor.

Just installed it yesterday. There is a little dimple (hard to see) where you will need to drill. It's actually pretty simple. I started with 1/8 --> 1/4 --> 1/2. Just be careful since there isn't much space to the insulation, maybe a bit less than a centimeter.
After you get the 1/2 inch hole, just stick the black piece in, screw and it'll tighten itself.

Thanks, I did get them in. I waited for a warm day because I didn't want to take a chance on cracking the panel in cold weather. Your right about the insulation, it could get wrapped around the drill bit .
