Lightbulb 2016 WRX Owners Manuals posted online by Subaru

All the new for 2016 features are explained in detail in theses manuals.

http://www.subaru.com/owners/resourc...wners-manuals/

The manuals are downloadable in .PDF format files.
Lane keep assist is the one topic I was interested in the most, what "Lane Keep Assist" can and cannot do is spelled out.

From the manual:

Quote:
Lane Keep Assist

The stereo cameras detect lane markings
(including Botts’ dots) of the lane and the
system assists the steering operation by
working with the electric power steering to
help keep your vehicle in its lane when driving
on expressways, freeways and interstate
highways.

WARNING

Lane Keep Assist is not an automatic driving system.
Do not overestimate the capabilities of Lane Keep Assist. It is not a system to assist inattentive driving or meant to permit driving without holding the steering wheel. Make sure to grip the steering wheel while driving. To drive safely, check the distance from the vehicle in front or from a vehicle driving in parallel with your vehicle, the surrounding conditions and the surrounding environment while driving.
If you feel that the level of control and timing by the system are different from your own driving style, the system may not support safe driving. Do not use Lane Keep Assist.

Lane Keep Assist does not always operate under all situations. If you rely only on the Lane Keep Assist to stay in a lane, it may cause an accident such as a collision with an obstacle beside your lane or with a vehicle driving in an
adjacent lane.
After reading this, I would say this is a self steering system that will steer for you under certain circumstances and conditions, meant ONLY for very straight and well marked highways.

What is it for if it isn't for that? How exactly do you need the car to steer itself back into your lane if you are attentively driving?

I know Subaru feels they need to say that for legal reasons, but I'm not sure how they release themselves from any liability by saying it isn't intended to do the exact thing it is meant to do.

I got my new eyesight equipped 2016 WRX last week and I can talk about how it works now that I've been driving it for a week. The eyesight system basically waits until you're dangerously close to going over either edge of the roadway then it gives you a beep and the steering automatically turns you back towards the center of the lane. It's more of an emergency system for inattentive driving, it does not have the finesse required to keep the car centered in the roadway while under power, it only kicks in when you've really messed up and it's going to cross the line severely. When it does so, it really is abrupt and causing it to steer automatically makes it to go out of automatic mode, including steering and adaptive cruise mode, when it does this the brakes are gently applied, you need to apply the gas or steer to keep the car driving otherwise it will come to a stop. It's the adaptive cruise control that I really like, it is amazing the way it will come to a complete stop and then you either tap the gas pedal or the resume button and it self drives following the car ahead of you all automatically, it's really a great system, it works very well.

Sorry but the only legal way to download a copy of the service manual is by paid subscription from the Subaru tech website-
http://techinfo.subaru.com/index.html
It's actually a good deal if you get the 72-hour subscription and don't mind having to download a ton of separate pdf's.
Any other electronic forms of the manuals that can be found online are unauthorized copies and violate Subaru's copyright, as such we do not permit those links to be posted here. Hence I'm going to close this thread before someone does so anyway.
And as for the owners manual, if for some reason the one in your glovebox isn't sufficient or you somehow lost it, those are readily available as pdf's on the Subaru website.
