I like this car.

With our first decentish snowfall, I took the Subaru on top of a mountain into state game lands. This is the first AWD car I’ve owned or driven in snow. I learned to drive in the snow in a 1989 Caprice. I also learned how to slide backwards down a snow covered hill and through an intersection in the same car. Important lessons about maintaining momentum and application of weight in the rear of the car were learned that day.

This is cheating.

The car came with Federal 595 tires. Not the greatest tire for these conditions, but I wanted to see what the car could do. It made it up the mountain with no issue. I feel like my old Golf with its Hakkapeliittas would’ve had a tough time.
