Currently a subaru outback limited. Gets way better mileage than my old f150 but doesn't have the ability to power through 4 feet of snow. The f150 was a 4 door with a cap on the bed so it was basically a station wagon on steroids. Plenty of room in the cab for people and tons of room in the bed for gear. With the subaru if i have more than 2 people in the car i need to use the roof rack for boards. I have also gotten stuck and had to shovel it out, never happened to the f150.

Thanks for the tip... my legacy is pretty low to the ground(stock), seeing as im coming from a Yukon XL. I think I'll drop a shovel in the back this winter.

Riding this season...

Put some real winter tires on that subaru and you are good to go

I'm going to buy some kind of smaller minivan, because you can remove middle seat from 2nd row and you can put snowboard, no need for roof racks whatsoever. Once I go to mountains it's a 1500 mile trip, so fuel economy counts a lot and no need for AWD on german autobahns of french motorways

You're doing it wrong.

One of these could make a decent snow vehicle... I'd definitely rock it all winter and the rest of the year. Better looking in person IMO.

I really doubt anyone would take their STi out on the salt covered roads.

You should go to Vermont in the winter then.

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!

Seeing cars like the WRX in the mountains is actually really common around here. Not quite as many STI's but still see them often. Less Evo's and S4's, but a few of them as well.

So many Subarus. They're everywhere. All year round. And yes, I'm jealous that I don't have one yet.
