All in the Family
All in the Family
 
We've been Subaru drivers since 1990, when we bought our first Legacy wagon that ended up with more than 250,000 miles. Currently, we have six Subaru models in our immediate family – a 1997 Outback with 228,375 miles, a 2000 Legacy with 186,900 miles, a 2010 Forester with 28,434 miles, a 2010 Legacy with 81,840 miles, a 2013 Outback with 15,500 miles and the newest addition to the fleet – a 2014 Legacy with 2,347 miles.
 
This photo shows some of the current drivers: the 2013 Outback with my mother-in-law Rusty; my daughter Tess standing between the 2000 Legacy and the 2010 Legacy that she'll drive to college; my wife Jill and dog Gus standing by Jill's 2014 Legacy; my son-in-law Greg with his daughter Addison next to the 1997 Outback; and my daughter Taylor with her Forester.
 
Thanks and long live the Subaru family "Legacy"!

INSIDER TIPS
 
Visibility Matters: Lights and Wipers
 
Lights are normal wear items that require periodic inspection and replacement. The lighting system provides nighttime visibility, signals and alerts other drivers, and supplies light for viewing instruments and the vehicle's interior. The wiper system keeps excessive water, snow and dirt from building up on the windshield, maintaining clear visibility.
 
"Lights and wipers play a critical role in safe driving, as the chance of an accident increases if you can't see or be seen," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "From the driver's seat, you may not notice a light that isn't working, so inspect all of your car's lights and replace those that are out. Also, inspect and replace wiper blades so you can see clearly when wet weather hits."
 
More tips to help keep you safe:
 • Don't overdrive your headlights; you should be able to stop inside the illuminated area, otherwise you are creating a blind crash area in front of your vehicle.
 • Keep headlights, tail lights and signal lights clean. External dirt and debris can dim operational lights from being seen by others.
 • Make sure that your headlights are properly aimed. Misaimed headlights blind other drivers and reduce your ability to see the road.

 • If there is any doubt on whether or not your headlights should be on, turn them on. Lights not only help you see better in early twilight, they also make it easier for other drivers to see you.
 • Many factors can accelerate the replacement interval of wipers, including operating conditions and frequency of use. Make sure your vehicle's wipers are working properly so your visibility is not compromised.
