2012 Subaru Impreza: User-Friendly Clock

March 20, 2013

2012 Subaru Impreza

The change-over to Daylight Saving Time (DST) happened all the way back on the 10th, but when I got into the Subie, I found that its clock was still giving me a pre-DST reading. This wasn't due to driver neglect. It was simply a function of the fact that the Impreza had been sitting idle in our garage ever since the change-over. You see, through no fault of its own, the Subie found itself getting no love from our editors that weekend when the car sign-out sheet was passed around.

Overall, the controls in our Subaru are simple and straightforward, and this is especially true for those that govern the clock. There's a "+" button and a "-" button, located to the right of the clock. Pressing the "+" button moves the time forward, while pressing the "-" button moves it back. It doesn't get any simpler than that.

    On the next generation model this will be buried in a sub sub sub sub sub menu requiring you to read the manual, get a degree in computer programing, tap at an icon on a fingerprint-smeared touch screen that's smaller than your finger tip, and ultimately a visit to the dealer, all for the sake of "technology".
