Narcolepsy is not an option when you drive a Subaru Forester.
Given, this abnormal sleeping condition is dangerous in any driving situation—narcoleptics suddenly fall asleep, without warning, anytime and anywhere, including behind the wheel of a moving vehicle. But with the Forester, the odds of a snoozer screeching his way to the next life is increased tenfold. All because of a high-end automotive technology the Subaru boys have blessed the Subaru Forester all-wheel drive sport ute with, called “cruise control.”
Cruise control lets you maintain speed even if you let go of the gas pedal, allowing you to do a lot of other things apart from, well, cruising and enjoying the sights—cross your legs, sit in the lotus position, smell your foot, tickle your girlfriend with your foot, a lot of things—then go back to normal driving when you hit the brakes.
