As it relates to programming issues/problems/bugs in automobiles, we had better get used to it. In fact, we eventually may start seeing regular software updates, possibly monthly or quarterly, like Microsoft and Apple provide. Tesla already does it automatically in its vehicles. It’s just the nature of the beast today.https://www.freep.com/story/money/cars/2018/11/08/subaru-recall-outback-legacy/1930566002/
A second Subaru large recall, thus far only pertinent to 2018 Outbacks and Legacies. Failure of low fuel warning light or distance remaining indicators, leading to running out of gas. Nice.
Regarding the specific problem in this article, if a driver runs out of fuel because the low fuel warning light never illuminated or the trip computer miscalculated the DTE, he gets no sympathy from me. It’s idiotic to run your tank that low on a consistent basis. I remember the time not too long ago when there was no such feature in cars, and the same thought-processing drivers ran out of fuel then, too.
