Earlier this year, Subaru said its 2013 Outback would be getting some upgrades--a tweak here, a tuck there, a new engine and some dandy new safety features.
You'd have thought someone was spreading rumors that the official transportation of drum circles and Lilith Fairs everywhere was turning into a Republican National Committee shuttle bus. So many of you kept coming back to find out exactly what was going on, we called up Subaru and demanded an answer. Or, actually, a road-test vehicle.
We took to the mean streets of Palo Alto, where coffee houses only slightly outnumber the local Ph.D.s, and headed from HGM's palatial headquarters complex (free Twix!) to the foothills outside Stanford, hoping to attract attention and commentary on the new Outback while not drawing too much attention for shooting video without a permit in fee-happy California.
What we found: nothing shocking. The Outback's new flat-four engine delivers a little better fuel economy, and about the same noise and vibration through the continuously variable transmission (CVT) that's in most models sold today. The space that's always taken us aback--in the right way--is untouched, but the interior's been dressed up a little more with some woodgrain trim that we are completely certain is sustainable, naturally harvested, organic in nature, and vegan-friendly.
And in a mix of light trail riding and street cruising, the Outback's even demeanor reminded us why shoppers snap them up in steadily climbing numbers. It's a no-brainer if you live in the snow belt--but who doesn't like the reassurance of all-wheel drive and a reputation for great resale value and durability?
Two features probably will divide the Subaru loyalists from the arrivistes. One's a fab Harman/Kardon sound system with 440 watts of power. It'll pump out NPR's Morning Edition with such clarity, even Nina Totenberg will make perfect sense. The other's EyeSight, billed as a first from Subaru, but coming from another related automaker in the very, very short term. It uses twin cameras--they look like binoculars above the rearview mirror--to detect obstacles ahead and feed info to lane-departure warning systems, active cruise control, and more. It's pretty fancy for a Subaru, and can drive the price of an Outback well past the mid-$30,000 range.
The rest of the crossover world is shying away, bit by bit, from the kind of SUV imagery that once held complete sway. Not so the Outback. It's a diehard. It's always had a more rugged flavor than the Venza, the Murano, and the Edge. And now with the Ford Escape shrinking and getting more dartlike, the Outback's real competition has narrowed down to, and turns out to be, interestingly enough, the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

http://www.Facebook.com/2Redline Honda proves it can still build a
class-leading vehicle with the release of their all-new 9th generation
Accord. With its dizzying array of new tech features, generous standard
equipment list, and improved fuel efficiency, it quickly puts the Accord
back to the top 3 of the midsize family sedan class. Our few gripes remain
with its lingering ever-conservative styling and a top trim touring model
that looks too similar to an EX trim.

2013 Honda Accord Sport 0-60 MPH Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Honda Accord is all new. It is bigger,
more fuel efficient and more ready to take on cars like the new Toyota
Camry. For 2013 the Honda Accord is available with a 4 or a 6 cylinder
engine. It can also be had with a 6-speed manual transmission or a new CVT.
In this review we test and review the 4 cylinder manual model to see how
this family Honda has improved. What TFLcar review would be complete
without a mile high 0-60 MPH test to determine how fast the car

Discussion about this Video:
I feel like I should have made this video a while ago but the opportunity
never came up. Since I had this RL in my shop that had a check engine
light AND an ABS light I thought it was a perfect opportunity to put this
video together. I get asked all the time about my 'special tool' and it's
really nothing more than a Honda 2 pin connector with the input wires
soldered together. These connectors might be harder to find than you think
but if you run across a junk honda and one of these is on the harness grab
it. Even if you don't have the tool a paper clip or piece of wire will do
the exact same thing so don't sweat it if you don't have the tool because
shorting the connector is all you need to do.
I hope you find this video helpful.
