    ROTFL. We just purchased a new Outback a few months ago. I think there are three different PDf manuals. Still trying to find things in the manual. Locking the doors the first time was interesting.

    Good grief if you got one like this, and thank God my sister bought an older model some years ago. Something like this would have driven her, and me, crazy!!!

    PS: Sly, you better put some energy bar snacks, a few beers and a sleeping bag inside in case you get locked inside accidently!!!

    LOL. Might need that after all.

    I think we figured things out pretty quickly. We used to lock the doors on our old car using the keyfob or an actual key. We would then test to make sure the door was locked by pulling up on the door handle. The new Outback uses a keyless entry system. If you have the electronic "key" on your person and are in range of the car pulling up on the door handle unlocks the car. At least that's what I think is happening.

    Ahhh, we used to have one of those. 2009 model brand new. Best car we ever had. Travelled all around Australia in it. Finally sold it in 2014 and at the time it was the right decision but we've never had another car as good and I'd have to "sell the farm" to buy the 2018 model. Still I can dream.

    We've had this one for almost 3 months and love it so far. It replaced a 2008 Pontiac Vibe. The tech diifference between the two cars is amazing given ten years time difference.

    I've really been impressed with how well-designed the interior is in terms of how wel the interior is designed. Things sre where they need to be in order to be used.

    I remember you mentioned some time back that you were going to purchase the Outback because it offered the best accessibility for you. Good friend of mine (now passed away) had the VA customize a Chrysler Van for him that was quite amazing. Automatic ramp, auto moving of the seats to accommodate his wheelchair. Special steering, brakes, etc. I believe the VA spent 35K on the Van. (He was a 100% disabled Vet.)

    If I were more able to drive I woould have considered it as an option.

    We had kinda narrowed things down to the Outback and one of the Honda SUVs. We liked both of them but a few things swung us in the direction of the more expensive Outback.
    1. Interior layout of the Outback seemed to make more sense. This was very close and boiled down to minor dufferences such as the cupholders in the Honda were placed in a somewhat awkward position -- too far back to be reached comfortably.
    2. The Outback had a slightly more solid feel when doing things like closing doors.
    3. Most importantly, SWMBO has wanted an Outback for years.

    I would be going along with her choice in this case.
