Subarus are Indestructible
My new videos will be posted on my new account;
This 4wd Subaru gets some extreme abuse and still it runs. From being
submerged to jumping and rolling this car takes it all and just keeps
running. They don't make them like this anymore.
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.
