I think you can count them on one hand. Good luck finding a lawyer to take that case on for you -- maybe Orly Taitz will be available soon...

They probably will come through with a fix, Rexygirl has already spoken about your particular car and the next oil consumption test.

But yet you continue to rant -- why not give it a rest and give Maestro a chance to deal with your issue before you cause them to tell you to take a hike, as well.
Zeeper- you are the one ranting.
Yes, I know what a class-action lawsuit is. And there are lots of subaru owners who aren't on this site.
You more or less are criticizing me for trying to say some positives.
Geez- I say something nice about the car and the thread police are coming!

Doesn't sound like removing the fuse is really all that fun if it cuts out at 4k and has slower steering. But its cool that someone tried it.

So I didn't notice a cut out at 4k, I will test this explicitly this weekend.

I also wouldn't call the change in steering 'slow' IMHO it just felt heavier and more direct. I tried some abrupt changes of direction when I had the fuse out and I noticed no difference in my ability to get the car to change direction. However, this is also just how it felt for me. To add further perspective I already really like this cars steering and for me the steering fuse out was an improvement over fuse in.

Good, keep us updated.

Also, once the fuse is out, take a look at your speedometer. Mine stopped working as well as the fuel consumption gauge and cruise control

People on this thread are god ****ing damn retarded. Anyone with 3 brain cells and a nice car knows that there's absolutely no use in turning traction control off on an AWD car, ever. It's AWD dip****s, what do you think that means?

So I can confirm that what Yuck experienced in his Canadian 2012, does also happen in my American 2012. With the fuse out going above 4k rpm induces either a fuel cut off or reduced power. Its very prominent and I believe it has to due with the check engine light being on. I believe if we could disable the ABS without inducing a CEL this problem should not arise, but I can't be sure.

I'll continue looking, however in the thread I first linked they mentioned two defeat options. One option that resulted in a CEL and one that did not. I update if I ever find anything...

Well he's banned now, so good riddance! Funny someone calls everyone idiots, but really they're stupid for not knowing the reason wanting to disable the traction control. Obviously in mud or snow it would be very helpful!

I reported him twice myself. I've met many confrontational people on many forums, but never as bad as him.

Yeah, I mean there's no problem with disagreeing with someone, but people like him ruin it for everyone else.
