2002 Subaru WRX wagon, stage 2 with a 5 speed. Michelin pilots for the winter, I think it's gonna be their last season so I'm gonna try and get some Blizzaks for next year. Had the car for quite a while and love it. Right now, I have no rack and can fit 3 people + gear and still be roomy, but I'm wanting to get a rack just to keep wet snowboards out at the end of the day.

I bet he gets more than that.

My 2006 Z71 with the hunka steel on the front managed 18 on my last CO trip. But I drove conservatively and didn't have much snow to deal with. Probably could have done better but I let it warm up 15 mins each morning.

I'd expect a newer truck to do better than mine. A lot depends on how it's driven I guess.

Renault Megane Estate, Bose version, 2012 on Continental winter tires.
Gets a lot of kilometers on a boarding trip to the Alps, round trip is 2100KM.
Always have chains on board just in case.
