Oh man, today was my first drive in the rain. I've never had so much fun in my life... and I know all the people on the freeway, that I was flying by, were eating their hearts out wishing they had AWD. :devil:



...and I got to use my Subaru "Love" umbrella for the first time as well. :D

I should have thought before posting this.... 65mph does appear to be "flying" when AZ drivers are freaking out about something they've never seen before... RAIN.

I think he is saying this is his first time in the SUBARU in the rain.

Oh yeah, and what everybody else said: AWD does not help you stop... unless you downshift! Then it helps a little.

AWD doesn't help you when you hydroplane lol
remember, awd wont keep you from not stopping.

Like these guys said, just remember that the AWD doesn't make you a god on the road. It's nice to feel the superiority on the road where others cars have to slow down and you actually can speed up... just be careful :)

On that fact, i love making 180 turns in the rain :mamoru:

you guys are brutal, is it necessary to have to bash OP so hard? Instead of saying "harharhar you gon' crash s0n!", shouldn't we just precaution him about safety? I understand we're not his parents or guardians, but I think I'm safe in saying that it should be known to him that we want Subaru to be a good community and have good reputation, so don't dick around.

jeez.

This is a car forum, Its just car forum BS'ing. Nothing negative meant. keep your hypersensitive butt hurt away! No difference here, then some guys talking and chilling in a parking lot.

Nice car OP, be careful, don't become a statistic.
