One of my old partners loved the Subi. We went into a dealer on duty one day to see the hot rodded one with the big wing years ago. I asked the sales dude if it was good to go for off road rally type shit you see them do on TV. He said absolutely not. They were not built for that, could not handle that usage, and all warranties would be void if an owner was using it in that way. So I said that it "was all for show" and he said "yes, but they are great for light snow."
