Mustangs ignore me, I only get civics, accords, and Rabbits bothering me. Of course being in a town with two Ford production plants means everyone and their grandma is driving a mustang

Apparently the "you just got beat by a wagon" decal on my back window is a little unnerving to people in the town I live in. So no one even tries to mess with my car even though it's just a silver wagon

Background info: I set cruise at 55-60 most of the time on the highway because I enjoy the drive and am in no rush (and i get 33 mpg!)

Anyhoo, I once had a prius playing "tag" with me. I didnt change my speed once and this guy sped up and slowed down 4 times on me!

Scions with fart cans like to prey on subies almost as much as old SRT4's.

Please don't feed the troll. If he really hated Subarus why would he continue to post on here?

Also.....you can own more than one car mhs....you can only post 2 if you're crafty. For example, I own an old outback with 250K miles that isn't in my profile due to lack of ability to post it. Either that...or he's lying. Hooray internet.

I think it has more to do with people being horrible drivers and not paying attention than anything else.
I regularly do a 2 hour drive down i5 and the amount of people who do this is ridiculous. Especially when they're going slow in the left lane and you have to go to the right to pass and get back over to the left and then they decide they want to speed up and ride your ass suddenly

YESSSS!! Seriously, this happens every time I drive my Subaru. They suddenly feel some type of way when you go around them, so then they ride your ass. I hate people. That's when you start brake checking hoes! It happened the other night in my sisters Honda at like 130am, I was drivin my friend back home and some douche was right up my ass with hids, so.... I brake checked his ass and then he backed off

Makes me miss having my A4 with rear fog. I could turn that on and people thought they were getting heavily brake checked while my speed never changed.

I have an extra ballast that has been tempting me to put it in the rear window. Only thing stopping me is the chance that a cop sees me turning that sucker on.

Tell him it is a rear fog-light. The B5 A4's rear fog made the right taillight brighter, if I flipped it on, looked like the brakes activating, always on it looked like my left taillight might have had a bulb go out on a multi-bulb assembly.
