There's really not much point to this post but I wanted to share the fun with some like-minded folk.
My buddy and I were breaking in his new-to-him 03 Impreza TS wagon today. We were doing some soft-roading with it and wandered into a water hole that was a wee bit deeper than we thought and the bow wave came back up over the hood and several inches up the windshield...
In fact as proof that water got that high some of it actually trickled down through the HVAC system onto my feet in the passenger footwell.
The car appeared to suffer no ill effects and did a couple hours of highway duty right after we wet/dry vacuumed the footwell out. .
That's just one of those things that makes a Subaru a Subaru I guess
