When someone mentions off-roading, the Subaru Outback is often the first thing to come to mind. Its capable all-wheel drive and versatile, outdoorsy spirit has gained it a big group of cult followers. The new 2018 Subaru Outback promises to offer those same performance standards with an upscale twist that includes some cool new technology.
Beyond a new front- and rear-end exterior design, and a quieter cabin with upgraded, sophisticated materials, the 2018 Subaru Outback gets a buffed up media system. Previous models have featured the Starlink Multimedia system, which continues to be the media and information hub of the Outback. However, the standard 6.2-inch screen grows to 6.5 inches, and a new 8-inch screen is now available.
The Starlink system continues to offer standards like smartphone integration and audio streaming. The updated version in the 2018 Subaru Outback also offers new apps, including an eBird app which helps drivers find birdwatching locations—the perfect outdoor twist to a Subaru feature.
The rearview camera, the tire pressure monitoring system, and the Blind Spot Detection/Rear Cross Traffic Alert system have all been updated as well. These are just some of the exciting changes we’re looking forward to in the new 2018 Subaru Outback. To learn more about what’s new in the new model year, give us a call at Hassett Pre-Owned.
Keeping your car up and running doesn’t involve much guesswork, unless you lost or don’t have an owner’s manual. Fortunately, there’s a general guide you can follow to keep your car properly serviced. Here’s a general service schedule from us here at Hassett Pre-Owned so you can keep your car running at peak performance.
Drivers would do well to check their windshield washer fluid and engine oil levels weekly, if not more often. Make sure all lights are working, including the dashboard indicator lights. Check tire inflation and condition too.
Every three months or 3,000 miles, make sure to check the oil, engine air filter, power steering fluid, automatic transmission fluid, and windshield washer fluid. Inspect the battery, cables, belts, hoses, and exhaust as well.
In addition to the previously listed items, drivers should check their chassis lubrication every six months or 6,000 miles. Make sure to change the oil at this point if you haven’t already.
Most vehicles are engineered for minimal attention which is why most items can go unchecked for one year or 12,000 miles. Make sure to check the wheel alignments, steering, suspension, coolant, brakes, and wiper blades.
Over caring for your car won’t hurt, but neglecting general service can lead to disaster.
We know this sounds a bit facetious but when you consider the Long Island lifestyle at large, a truck starts to make sense even if you’re not a builder, landscaper or boating enthusiast. A truck is the way to get every kind of work done–better, faster and more efficiently.
The all-new 2015 F–150 is the truck to get: Up to 700 lbs. lighter than the 2014 model, thanks to a military grade, aluminum-alloy body and steel frame, the new F–150 has better fuel efficiency, greater towing and payload capacities plus improved power-to-weight ratio for faster acceleration, enhanced handling and braking.
