Hillclimbing in a subaru loyale!
This hill was a lot steeper than it looks on video! Plus the car has 272k
miles on it and a blown head gasket! Still going strong though...

Subaru AWD test vs. Honda, Toyota, and Volkswagen
Our team toured the Subaru plant in Indiana. This video shows the "Roller
test," which very impressively demonstrates the difference between Subaru's
AWD and that of the competition. The leader in All-Wheel Drive technology,
there are no other vehicles quite like Subaru. See for yourself right now!
[HD] '90 Subaru Loyale Offroading (May 23, 2013)
Nothing major. Just some light offroading that is well within the
capabilities of the car. I never even switched into 4WD Hi, let alone 4WD
Lo. Entire video was done in FWD. I didn't want to do anything major, since
my engine is still relatively new to my car. Plus, without a lift kit,
ground clearance is definitely an issue for major offroading.
Anyways, just driving through the woods in my Soob. Nice to be in the
Subaru's natural habitat. :P I would've gone much further on the trail, but
as I started climbing in elevation, I reached some snow. Snow is nothing
for the Subaru, but again, ground clearance is an issue. Snow is
unpredictable and I can get high-centered if I'm not careful. By the time I
got to the snow, I was far from civilization. Without another person in
another car, I didn't feel comfortable continuing by myself. Headed back,
and good thing because I lost one fog light along the way. Was able to
retrieve the light and hook it back up. :P
Location is Tinkham RD, east of North Bend, WA. Exit 42 off of I-90.
Definitely a great spot, from what I can tell. First time being there, and
I'll definitely go back soon!

Subaru AWD vs. Everyone Else
This video was a recap for Subaru Sales Associates and affiliates that
participated in a driving event pitting Subaru against its core
competition. These tests were repeated thousands of times, with the the
Sales Associates experiencing each event for themselves. This was NOT meant
for public consumption and is therefore not a propaganda video. This video
was a review for those people who experienced this driving event
themselves. All vehicles were stock, had stability and traction control
enabled if equipped, and were operated using the manufacturer's recommended
tire pressures. While this video depicts individual instances,these tests
were performed thousands of timeswith thousands of participants over a
period of two months. The intended audience of this video experienced first
hand the documented results.
