Towing a subaru with an automatic
Posted 14 October 2003 - 05:49 PM
Also, is there any advice that I should hear before towing a subaru with another subaru for 800 miles? The first thing that comes to mind is will I have the power and the brakes for going over the three mountain passes that I have to go through? The other thing that I can think of is how have people connected the brake lights/tail lights/turn signals before?

Pulling a Subaru with a Subaru is not recommended. I did it with my Legacy pulling a 83 Wagon but it was flat towing and it was flat ground not mountain passes.
Stopping was not fun but not that horrible. A Panic stop would have been more scary.

The road conditions could present a problem. Not so much in getting there, but in the amount of time it would take to get there. I think I'll probably just drive the car down and either fly back or catch a ride from my brother, who is also going down and back (from Fairbanks). I have never driven this road in the winter, and it's probably not the smartest thing to do it for the first time while towing another car of equal weight.
