    Confusing info online (oils)

    simple answer...no, 10-40 is fine.... long as it's pukka stuff. semi or full synthetic., depending on budget. and a proper subaru filter, , regular changes the most important thing.

    Navigation help

    if i've got this right you should be able to scroll thru menu and set to UK as opposed to russia, i think it comes with various language/country options. i'm not familiar with that unit tbh. i think it uses a 3or 4G sim card, either way it's a big step up from mine. you need someone with more ICE knowledge !! (or try a Subaru main dealer) (or local car entertainment specialists) hopefully a member here can help you more 🙂
  4. +1 for petrol...but despite being tough as nails, go anywhere, brill in snow etc you'll be lucky to see much more than 30mpg,,maybe closer to 40 if you drive like a sleepy vicar... even the diesel (noisy compared to german equiv's) is hard pressed to hit 45mpg i don't think anyone ever bought a scooby for economy !! but it's pretty much the only drawback. jmo🙂

    Navigation help

    hi karen, i'm pretty sure 2010 leggys had core2 dvd navigation...if you've got sd card maybe it's not the original head unit. you can get maps/updates from subaru toolbox(and elsewhere) but i was under the impression that only applied to recent model years. i'm sure someone with more info will be along to help. 🙂

    turbine/whine from rear

    sounds like it could be a bearing (mebbe buy 1 and take with you in case) i do know it's always best practice to change all 4 tyres at same time, ,50% difference in tread depth is not a good plan imo...i'd bite the bullet and get a matching set then see if that improves the whine.
  7. the gen 4 legacy has the same options for the armrest but no idea if they would fit your fozzie....
