Still A Learning Experience

I bought my 2018 Outback Touring in the middle of January. Before I made the plunge I studied the online PDF manuals thoroughly and thought that I
had learned a lot. And when I got the physical manuals I read them again. So today, three months later, I discovered that I had not learned some basic stuff -- like how to lock the doors. I've been enjoying the automatic touch unlocking afforded by the key fob thingie in my pocket but always felt that having to press a button on it to lock the doors was pretty crude. So, this morning while looking at an online video clip I was surprised to learn the secret of the little nearly invisible (at least to me) ribs on the top of the door handle. Maybe I _am_ getting too old to learn new tricks...

It is not just Subaru owners. A guy with a Honda CRV told me you probably don't learn everything about how to operate your vehicle until you trade it in. He also told me that the younger crowd is trading in sooner just to keep up with all the new electronic gizmos.
Youtube videos are bailing a lot of us out these days with manuals almost impossible to read. A son gifted me a watch that I found impossible to set the time reading the manual. He suggested looking for a video which I found as learned how easy it was to set the time. Can be frustrating.
