I like the copious amounts of un-necessary rear steer used to pull the subaru out of the mud

Without seeing the whole area it's hard to tell, but it sure looks like he is taking the hard way out OC that hole.

I also noticed that there didn't seem to be any tie-ins on the exo other than below the body...

what happens when he hits a tree sideways?

The wife and I almost bought a cross trek xv and I wanted it to happen as its a cool suv. But after I drive it I was not sold. I felt like the interior was a throwback from a 98 Honda Accord. No thanks. Awesome fuel mileage, great awd system, cheap price. But then we found a great deal on a lease for a Cadillac ats and I have no regrets. $269 per month awd 2.0l turbo awd Cadillac.
