Default Availability of Eyesight driver assist?

Does anyone know if Subaru is already shipping 2015 Forester or Outback models with the Eyesight driver assist option or is it not going to arrive till later in the model year?

TIA

2015 foresters have eyesight available. I've seen a few premiums and base models with them when I worked at a local dealer. As far as 2015 out backs I'm sure it's available but from what my friends told me it's gonna be hard to find one since it's really popular right now.

eyesight is available in the foresters already and coming soon for the outback. its a pretty cool feature, sometimes strange to get used to. it definitely helps though. my dads forester has it, and after suffering a srroke, it helps his driving immensely. working for subaru, they made sure it was available to him once he was capable of driving again

Thanks. I think I just figured it out exploring their Web site. I'm really only interested in a manual transmission and Eyesight is only available with the automatic transmission ARGHHHHHHHHHH, very dissappointed.

Eyesight... waste of time. If it's needed the driver needs more education or should not be on the road to begin with.

i would be willing to BET that it wouldnt be possible...for several reasons...to 'install' it off platform...or even on a vehicle that it wasnt factory installed]

Make fun of it if you will, but Pre-Collision Braking Control, Active Lane Keep steering assistance system and Adaptive Cruise Control are all features every car should have. People say they are good at multitasking, but we are not made to. Your eyes drift, you start thinking about where you are going instead where you are, the kids start making noise, the wife is trying to tell you what exit to go off next, the list goes on... anything to help the driver is a plus and so long as you're not being forced to use these features or forced to pay for them... who cares.

My wife's 2014 Outback has it and we both like it. I've been bold enough to test it following a car on cruise control at 60 mph and keep my foot off the pedals and follow that car to a dead stop at a red light and the car will maintain the distance and stop the car all by itself. Pretty cool and while I don't feel I necessarily need it for my daily driver my wife has a bad habit of tailgating that I just can't seem to get her to break so this makes me feel better when she's taking the kids on trips as it also alerts you when you drift out of lane just in case you are falling asleep at the wheel.

I don't see why anyone would be against this technology if it keeps people safer. For every good driver on the road there's at least five ****-ups and I welcome any technology that is going to prevent some girl texting & driving while behind me from rear ending my car. Until they can eliminate the "stupid" gene out of the human race this type of technology has a place.

Yea, I think Eyesight is a great feature. For someone who drives as much as I do (about 30,000/year) this would be a great feature to have. There is no reason to be against something like this, if it helps people who are horrible drivers, drive better, I don't see the negative.

The 2014 Forester, Outback and Legacy plus the 2015 Forester all have the "old" EyeSight system. The 2015 Outback and Legacy will have the "new" EyeSight beginning with vehicles arriving in September.

Subaru's description of the "new" EyeSight system:

Huh? Of course it's possible. I've designed robotic systems with orders of magnitude greater complexity. Your personal limitations are not the limitations of the community. Not all of us need plug and play solutions.

Just another nanny to let people get more comfortable with texting while driving, putting makeup on in the mirror, shaving, playing with the iPad strapped to the wheel (man I would love to see an airbag turn that iPad into an iFace), or otherwise doing something other than PAYING ATTENTION TO THE DAMN ROAD!

Yes, it sis a nice feature. Yes it will probably save lives (at first).

What about when people start relying on it 100% just like every other nanny feature in a car? Remember when people could drive in snow and remember how to rock their car out of a snow bank? Now when traction control fails, OH MY GOD I'M STUCK!! Or when cars didn't have backup cameras or sensors? Watch someone back out of a space once with those, they never ONCE check their blind spots.

It will turn into another nanny to be abused by inattentive, stupid, ignorant drivers on the road. Then when it fails and someone plows through a line of children, they will blame the manufacturer, not themselves.

cupcake....YOU asked.... and I answered

and the answer IS as I stated.

maybe YOU can enlighten US on what it would take to do it and its cost...mmmm???

I will bet you $100 that it would cost at lest the cost of buying an entire eyesight equipped vehicle... and swapping the entire electrical system to the other vehicle, including the eyesight system and much of the brake system would cost at LEAST another $10k

im saying that it IS impossible for an individual to do this in a reasonable time period

im saying that YOU could NOT POSSIBLY do it this year(and likely next year either)....for several reasons.


im NOT limited in the way YOU are....im not an idiot engineer
