Subaru was a little later to the party on this than you might think. A lot of manufactures had electronic traction aides in place (and good ones) before VDC became the norm in the Subaru line up. And...

Happens more often than you think (ice just at the stop sign stripe).

Because they are combining both FWD and AWD versions together. Go try to find a Subaru dealer in a smaller town. Willing to...

Babying the car till I hit 200k miles, (only 10k more to go). Once Im there, the fun stuff begins as I figure at that point I'm on borrowed time anyway.

Unless it's a dedicated track car that I'm not driving on the street.......I would NEVER remove the airbag. That's just not a smart move IMO.

Other than that, the car seems like it would be an...

It's happened before on my car. I too was perplexed that the cruise was flashing, and the CEL was not on. I pulled over, turned off the car, turned it back on and never had the issue since.

Well, if you want to talk numbers........

Curb weight is actually 3366 lbs for the Forester with CVT (less for the manual). That's just shy of 1500 lbs difference (you do realize that is a LOT)....

That's no biggie then if you were not on public roads. Even nearing the max of 3500 lbs, I stay off the main roads and take the 45 mph back roads. They haul just fine with the weight too.
