With all the amazing safety features provided on a Subaru, learning what and how they work can seem overwhelming. Our new series Eyesight Feature of the Month will provide you with an in depth understanding of the features on your Subaru! Check out our first feature here!

Since 2012, Subaru Eyesight Technology has helped drivers stay safer and more alert on the road. One of the newest Eyesight features, Eyesight Assist Monitor, flashes three indicator lights onto the base of the driver’s side windshield. A green, yellow, or red light will be displayed depending on the Eyesight warning or operation status.
On initial start up, the LED lights will flash to indicate Eyesight Assist Monitor readiness.  Now available on the Limited/Touring Ascent, Touring Outback, Touring Legacy, and Automatic WRX. We’ve broken it down to give you a better understanding.
