Your Love Story
 
I'm a touring singer/songwriter of the Americana variety who likes to climb rocks, backpack, snowboard and surf on the side. I wanted to say hello and introduce you to my silver 2014 Subaru Forester. She's my first Subaru. Her name is Sammy and I call her my tourbaru.
 
Sammy came home to Steamboat Springs, CO, with me on September 3, 2013, and by the end of my fall tour we'd already racked up 17,000-plus miles together. From Red Mountain Pass down to Ouray, CO, in a snowstorm, to cruising up a sunny PCH in Ventura, CA, to Alligator Alley in Florida, Sammy has become my best friend on the road. She handles my music equipment with room for my outdoor gear, and still gives me incredible gas mileage. I look forward to returning safely from many adventures courtesy of my sweet, silver Sammy!

Insider Tips
 
Vehicle Dynamics Control: When to Turn it Off
 
The Subaru Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) System automatically senses steering and braking inputs to help keep your Subaru on its intended path. If your vehicle begins to lose traction on a curve, for instance, VDC automatically adjusts the engine output and brakes to slow down individual wheels so you can stay on course.
 
Some situations, however, are best managed with the VDC system turned off – specifically, when driving in or extricating your vehicle from deep mud or snow. Simply activate the “VDC Off” switch until you’re back on track.
 
Even with VDC off, your vehicle’s AWD system is fully operational and the standard viscous limited-slip rear differential comes in handy when you need to free the vehicle from deep snow or mud.
Vehicle Dynamics Control Off SwitchNote: The Subaru Vehicle Dynamics Control System comes standard on all Subaru vehicles manufactured since 2009.
