Subaru and SAWD
Although a fairly niche brand in the US, Subaru cars and trucks enjoy a special appreciation for their off-road ability, reliability, and superior handling. They're considered ideal vehicles for working parents, employees, and even do great in drifting competitions, which we imagine is most of the appeal for those who enjoy going fast and furious.
Subaru is the automobile manufacturing division of Subaru Corporation of Japan, which primarily works in aerospace and heavy engineering. Subaru Corp has a long history in aerospace and still contracts with Boeing and Lockheed Martin to this day. Their engineering prowess is well-established and their vehicles are famous for their Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive technology, which is included in almost all Subarus. SAWD provides enhanced steering and rough-road capability, allowing all wheels to drive (push) the vehicle as necessary.

Subaru Maintenance Tips
Like all cars, Subarus operate best when maintained on a regular schedule, even if no issues are apparent. It can be a pain keeping track of the maintenance, but fortunately Subaru.com includes a number of tools including maintenance schedules, owner’s manuals, recall dispatches, warranty info, and more: Subaru Maintenance Schedules and More
You do want to keep your Subaru in good condition, right?
Funny Subaru Links
Perhaps oddest of all automobile marketing could be this anime (Japanese cartoon) that Subaru produced in cooperation with GAINAX Studios. It’s called “Wish Upon the Pleiades”, and if you’d like to see what that’s about, you can watch it here:
