  1. Hi Subaru clubbers, Noticed that there's hot air coming out from the bottom aircond vents when the engine warms up. When I reach to the bottom to feel I can feel hot air and there is also like a pipe in the passenger side from the radiator coming into the car. Seems it's used to heat the heater core for people who drive during winter. For Singapore use this is very irritating cos my legs feel hot after driving for 1 hour. The only way for it to cool down is if I turn the aircond temperature to max cool. Then the direct air to face is cold but the air at the bottom is just cool. Anyone else have this problem? Is there a valve that's not closing or something?
  2. My first car ever in Singapore. Super excited. Have been driving rentals for a while, and finally wanted to test water. So got a car that's left 1 year on COE. Test drove it last week and it drove like a dream, except for some noise in the steering when full lock. Dealer D2 Motor told me that it's normal. Wonder what you folks think. Few questions: 1. How to know if spark plugs, transmission oil, engine oil need changing? Next service date is not until some time next year. 2. Is the noise, like whining sound, normal when full lock? 3. Need some advise on where to bring this to for good and cheap regular servicing. If I fall in love with it I might renew COE after it ends next year. 4. Planning to change the aircond filter myself cos I don't think previous owner ever changed it. Know where to buy these kind of things? Air filters, mats, etc. 5. Car seems a bit underpowered for a 1.6, but I guess I am used to lighter Japanese cars. Thanks and looking forward to be part of the club!
