The 90+ mph speeds are what us petrol heads call the Italian tune up. Ferrari techs used to get cars that were sitting for so long that they ran like crap. So they'd take em out a whoop on em for a little bit, run the car like it was meant to be run. Blows all the build up out of your engine. Quit whining. Just tell your insurance company so your rates won't go up.

The Italians are not known for their engineering prowess. Regardless of how many Supercar makes are of Italian origin. There was a car in Europe many years ago that had the slogan "designed in Italy, engineered in Britain". James May himself wrote that the only way the car could've been any worse if it was the other way round.

These cars are "world" cars meaning they are built to be sold in several markets around the world. Which means they would be expected to run on the autobahn. So >90mph

The last one was a freebie.
Texas: correct
Montana : correct 15 years ago not anymore

To all the people who are making the comment "You shouldn't be mad at someone for driving your car like you do"
Why the **** not? Did they pay for it? Are they making my payments, paying my insurance, buying my fuel? **** no they aren't. Its my car, that I work my ass off for. Not theirs. **** them.

I wasn't aware that modern Subarus were carb'd and would benefit from this behavior.

Only on paper, right? You're not going to go out with someone and drive like the lot monkey did, I hope.

Are you really comparing a Subaru to a Ferrari? You sound like a moron. The OP isn't whining he has a legit complaint. And how do cars that sit too long get build up? Maybe you and your "petrol head" buddies should stop sniffing the petrol and rethink the good ol' Italian tune up.

Yes, this was indeed a technique - back when cars like that had breaker point ignition systems with mechanical advance, and multiple, multi-throat carburetors that did not maintain stoichiometric ratios between different cylinders at different speeds.

With electronic ignition, fuel injected cars and advanced maps, Need Not Found.

The only issue with the valet mode with the AP is what if your getting warranty trans work done, they can state the AP brought extra power and stressed the transmission causing the failure and denied claim. Which is actually the issue the OP had.

I used to work across the street from the Roseville automall and around closing time for the garages we would here all kinds of screeching and burns out going on as cars were being moved into the back parking lot. I'm afraid to drop my car off to even get an alignment done anymore. Would rather sit and wait for it and make sure it isnt taken out with somebody slamming through my gears.

Even got a door ding at a dealer once on my brand new 2011 Outback. I was so angry...

I once had two morons take my 97 vette for a 10 mile jaunt while I got an oil change. I made them pay for two new tires, 350 a piece. The owner said 'Man you know this is going to come out of their pay and they don't make a lot I'm being straight with you' To which I replied 'well maybe next time they won't drive someone's ****ing car without their permission'.

It was an auto so they couldn't do too much damage, but I'm certain what they were up to for 10 miles of fun in a nice vette and I made them PAY for it.

Serves them right! It's akin to a computer tech going through all your personal documents to diagnose hard drive or RAM problems, completely unnecessary and unwarranted. Actions like that are definitely grounds for being fired and if they're smart, those rookies will learn from it.
