  1. Engine and Drivetrain
    Hi, Maybe someone have some advice here: On road with 10% incline, wet snow (~ 1cm, 1/2" thick) , air temp. +1oC. On the climb the car could not make it (!) Wheels spinning, could hear ABS knocking as to compensate for loss of traction, VDC warning lights flashing etc... Other AWD around...
  2. Wheels and Tires
    My son and I did a fun and pretty exciting 1,800 mile, five day road trip around the perimeter of New England in my 6-speed '18 Premium, including the North Maine Woods logging roads. Circumnavigating New England in my Crosstrek <iframe width="560" height="315" src="" title="YouTube video...
  3. Engine and Drivetrain
    (Vehicle is 2020 Crosstrek PHEV) Hey all, About a week ago during a cold spell I was reversing in my driveway and the driver front wheel "caught" on a small (1-2') snowdrift, I thought it was no big deal and increased power to go over the bump. Immediately afterwards the handling...
  4. Dealer Service, Maintenance, and Warranty Issues
    Hey Everyone, So this is my first Subaru and AWD system in general. I have been practicing with the AWD by taking it out into open or low traffic areas and trying different combinations of driving styles. However, I cannot seem to find any combination that works for me when it comes to slushy...
  5. Wheels and Tires
    Hey everyone! I was curious what everyone's favorite all-terrain tires are? If you want to say why, even better! Personally, I love the BFG's K02's: They have that classic/aggressive off-road look, they're widely available, they work in the snow well too, and they have excellent reviews/ratings.
  6. Appearance and Body
    Dear Friends, The front bumper of my Subaru XV Crosstrek (2015) bumped into the snow on highway. Car does not have any scratch or anything like that , except the front bumper on the driver's side has some damage. The black Guard on the right hand side has a dent and there is small crack just...
  7. Wheels and Tires
    Hello all-- I have a set of good 16" alloy rims from my old '05 Forester, I was shopping for snow tires and was offered something that sounds good from good local shop that I have used over the years. I'm wondering if could use the rims for 235/60 tires that my guy has for sale CHEAP. He's...
  8. General Discussion Forum
    I do quite a bit of off road driving. I haven't needed to yet, but if the situation were to arise, could I pull my friends car or truck out of snow or mud if it were to get stuck? And is it better to use one of the tow/recovery eyes, or the trailer hitch?
  9. Hybrid General Discussion
    During a recent heavy snowstorm, our 2014 Hybrid Touring demonstrated that the hybrid system does far more than simply boost MPG. The electric motor provides almost 50 lb-ft of torque at 0 rpm, so there is no need to race the engine when plowing through deep snow. The extra weight (about 275...

    Winter came early this year and for the first time in a long time I don't care how much it's going to snow. I know I can get my child to school and I can get to work, Crosstrek doesn't care, it says "lets go!!" We live down in a hollow with only hills in every direction for getting out...
