Headwaters Rally: First Look

For nearly two decades, Headwaters was a mainstay in the rally world. It’s operated by the same group that organizes the Ojibwe Forest Rally each year, and the event is a staple for the Minnesota rally community. Over the past few years, weather and Covid-19 have played havoc on the continuity of the event. Wet springs or snow canceled Headwaters in 2022 and 2018. Then, the pandemic sidelined the event in 2020 and 2021. Those… Read More →

Scott: Here’s a nice review of the 2024 Crosstrek, which I drove for the first time the other day. Subaru did a good job with this one!

According to Subaru and Experian data, up to 97 percent of Subaru Crosstreks sold in the U.S. are still on the road today, representing that the brand’s fastest-growing SUV… Read More →

The New Subaru Crosstrek Wilderness Looks Like a Steal

Subaru says the take rate for its Wilderness models is about 20 percent—one in five buyers going for the most off-road capable version of these generally off-road capable family cars. After looking at the newest Crosstrek Wildnerness, I am surprised the take rate isn’t higher. The big deal with the car is that you only spend about two grand more than the next highest trim of Crosstrek to jump up to Wilderness level. For that… Read More →
