See your Subaru retailer to help accessorize your Outback for winter. Among these accessories is a set of custom-fit All-Weather Mats1 that help protect the vehicle carpet from sand, dirt, and moisture.
Another accessory is the Ski and Snowboard Carrier.2 It holds up to six pairs of skis or four snowboards and also may be used to carry fishing rods, wakeboards, or water skis. Large red buttons allow the locks to be released, even while you’re wearing gloves. The key for the locks is included in the carrier kit.
1 Not intended for use over the top of Carpeted Floor Mats.
2 Additional Mounting Clamps required. Consult vehicle Owner’s Manual for total roof load limit.
When a telephone company asks you not to use its phones or network, you know the reason behind the request is something serious. That’s what AT&T has done.
Focusing its message on teenage drivers, AT&T has joined the chorus of concerned people and organizations calling for drivers to commit to not texting while driving. AT&T cites Virginia Tech Transportation Institute statistics that drivers who text while driving are 23 times more likely to be involved in an accident.

The winter months are here, so it’s a good time for a reminder about the capabilities of Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) – what it can do, and what it cannot.
While AWD gives you exceptional traction in just about any driving situation, it cannot overcome the laws of physics. It does not stop the vehicle quicker or diffuse the effects of water, ice, snow, and slush when cornering.
Inclement weather with slippery roads can be a problem even for AWD. Reduce speed in bad weather and maintain ample distance from other vehicles.
