    Thread: The Subaru thread!

    1. 10-19-2009 04:23 PM #1
      I didn't see one of these posted, so sorry if one already exists.

      No, it's not "real" off-roading, but it's fun all the same.

      I doubt that many Subaru owners frequent this forum, but I want to see more Subarus getting used properly.

      Awesome little wagon! I love it!

      what was the point of this post?

      LOL.

      if you don't over-estimate the abilities of your vehicle... you won't need to be pulled out.

      but offroading IS about trying what you think you 'might' or 'might not' be able to do.

      it's ok.. i've pulled out a few jeepers and a couple F-150 4x4s.

      doesn't mean that my rig is better.. it just means that they didn't make it through.

      good job driving your car in the dirt....now go drive it off the nearest cliff. I HATE SUBARU!!

      LOL. And the point of this post was?

      I'm sure there are just as many if not more people that would say the same about VWs (especially with all the people that have own Mk3s and Mk4's that have been plagued with little problems).

      I own VW's as well....but I guess you are one of those militant VW owners.

      Relax man.. you went out of your way to make this post in an attempt ruin someone else's thread.

      Go race your EP Jetta and have a good time. We will do the same with our toys.

      love the red.. i was looking for a red limited but i could only find them in the non-limited. settled on a white limited.

      2004 Subaru Outback Wagon
      11-21-2009 11:49 PM #31

      Those pics were all taken when I lived in Wyoming. I really miss it there! Subaru's do very well in snow and on dirt/gravel roads. I took mine into some very rough areas, though, and made it through with some talent and determination. I don't have a lot of pics of the car in tough spots since I was always out there alone with my wife and it's windy and cold in WY, so I didn't expect her to get out and take pictures of the wagon driving around. :-P

      Mine is a 2004 Outback. It has the 2.5 liter engine, a limited slip rear diff, the 4EAT automatic transmission, and the tires are General Grabber AT2's 215/65R16.

      When my budget opens up a bit, I plan to outfit it with a lightbar and fog/severe weather/rally lights, 2 inch king spring lift (australian), and skid plates for the engine and rear diff.

      my old wagons.

      lots of fun, just a bit to small and slow. BUT i would probably buy another GL if i could find a clean original example.
