Apple Inc. has released several new or revised iPod units. The second-generation iPod touch and the fourth-generation iPod nano were changed internally. As a result, they can no longer be charged by a 12V power source such as the one available through the current Subaru iPod Interface. Otherwise, the new iPod units will function normally.
Subaru is updating its iPod Interface, which will be available in spring 2009. Please check www.subaru.com/ipod for updates.
As the weather warms through springtime, the air in your vehicle’s tires warms, too. Check air pressure for overinflation. Overinflated tires can reduce fuel economy and cause a harsher ride.

Subaru dealers who take part in the CARFAX Service Link program report vehicle service and maintenance information to CARFAX. CARFAX Vehicle History Reports™ then carry the vehicle’s service records and dealership names, indicating trusted dealerships to buyers of the vehicles when they appear in the pre-owned market. The information also allows fair evaluation and pricing for that market.
National Car Care Month – endorsed by Subaru of America, Inc. – encourages owners to visit their dealers to ensure that their vehicles are in good working condition. Motorists are keeping vehicles longer, so proper maintenance is a necessity. It ultimately saves money, improves safety, and helps to reduce pollution.
Watch for Subaru dealership promotions – coupons and special offers. Remember that factory-trained technicians are prepared to take care of your Subaru vehicle at your dealership. April is one of two National Car Care Months. The other is October.
(See the article Caring for Your Subaru Vehicle in this issue for more about maintenance.)
