Not sure about anything at 1hr10mins, but at 2hrs it throws up a little message in Japanese text with 2 readable that is basically a reminder to take a break.

Gidday, yes I wondered about that 2 hour thing, I looked at the time driven when it beeped to get that, was 2 sentences in Japanese but couldn't see a '2' in the context

I randomly get the same in winter. Seems when temp is approaching zero, all I can imagine is it saying caution icy roads or something like that. Never in warm temperatures.

You've gotta wonder what little intricacies car manufacturers have built in, but have never really been noticed or taken heed of lol

4th gens can also be set up to say happy birthday too but have no idea how that would be done.

Ive had the same thing happen in icy conditions too heading up Mt Ruapehu. Has happened to me two or three times (nowhere near the 2 hour drive time) so im convinced its a warning about the temperature/ road

      Evening all,
      Have recently brought a 2012 BM GT S Legacy, black, leather, full STi exhaust, 2.5 turbo and best of all 6 speed manual.
      Its a amazing car to drive, however the speedo, fuel consumption gauge and odometer has recently stopped working.
      Cruise control still works as normal.
      Wondering if anyone has had the same or similar experience and what may have caused the issue.
      Have checked to see any broken or loose cables, sensors etc but to no avail. The newer Subaru’s are a bit more fancy than the old STi parked beside it in the shed!
      Any suggestions greatly appreciated as the nearest Subaru dealer is somewhat of a drive away, we are located in Fiordland.

      Hi Guys
       
      Changed the thermostat in my 2002 B4 Legacy this morning.
      Noticed bubbles coming from the overflow.
      The car isn't over heating, coolant isn't boiling, A/C blowing hot air as it should, Thermostat definitely opening, Oil clear and clean.
       
      Going to be replacing the radiator cap and bleeding the cooling system again with the front jacked up this time, did it on a hill the first time hoping it would have the same effect.
       
      Any other ideas of what it might be or things to try before considering the possibility that the head gasket randomly started leaking straight after putting a new working thermostat in?
       
      Thanks Guys.
