I kid you not, but reading the owners manual in my 2016 WRX it says, CAUTION, If the level gauge is not pulled out easily, twist the level gauge right and left, then pull it out. Otherwise, you may be injured accidentally straining yourself.

Does it show a picture of the fan with severed fingers off a hand? Those were my favorite warning stickers.

Not an "attorneys warn you of everything" post, but a friend in the 1960's got one of the first Datsun 510's. The manual stated, "In back of the instrument panel is a soft green light which will bring you much pleasure."

Thanks for the strain warning atikovi!

I read that in my Forester manual and had a good laugh also. Attributed it to the stereotypical snowflake Subaru owners.

Thanks for the strain warning atikovi!

Are those separate babies or did he back up in order to try to get the other leg? Also, it looks like that leg meat might be jamming the blade housing. Is there an adequate sized chute to take care of that sort of thing?

Maybe it's because WRX's are mostly driven by decaf, soy latte boys??πŸ˜‚

Are you implying that they would actually know what a dipstick is? LOL

Subaru... saving people from themselves since the day we read the owner's manual.
