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!
Subaru at its finest
Sometimes the secret to success is being just dumb enough to attempt the
impossible. For instance, trying to tow a snowbound UPS truck up a steep
hill with a small Subaru. That doesn't seem like a feasible idea, does it?
But you've got nothing to lose by trying, which is how I find myself
dragging a UPS truck up a hill with a Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid.
The day before the latest crippling Southern snowstorm, I'm in possession
of a bright green Subaru and a head full of bad ideas. I visit Lowe's and
buy a forged steel hook, which I shackle to the Subaru's tow eye to create
a beefy attachment point for my tow strap. I figure that when the storm
hits, I'll just cruise around in the all-wheel-drive Subaru and rescue the
non-Subaru-having motorists. I get more action than I bargained for.
First there's the Infiniti G37 coupe by the side of the road. The owner
says she's planning to just leave it there and she has a good point —
even if I dragged her onto the pavement, she'd be right back in the ditch
within 20 feet.
The next opportunity is a Corvette. I give the guy credit for heading out
in a blizzard in a Vette, but the Crosstrek is useless because Corvettes
are deliberately set up to resist towing. There's nowhere to affix a strap
or hook, a fact confirmed when we pull out the owner's manual and the
chapter on towing simply reads, "Don't."
I'm despairing of my usefulness when we happen upon a police roadblock
ahead of a hill. The cop informs me that there are cars off the road and
it's closed. I offer to pull them out, but he turns us away. So I simply
take a five-mile detour and approach the valley from the other side,
cresting a rise to find the jackpot—seven or eight cars stuck on the
hill. Plus two UPS trucks.

[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.
