It amazes me what I see every year at Smiths Point. This year was a Suburu STI and a C Class Benz 4 matic.
awd = 4wd... right?? LOL
Subaru's are great offroad only if you drive 70mph+.

On sore thumb, Gilgo and Demo Pt, I've recovered countless Explorers that actually had 4wd but stupid drivers..
Yet I've seen tons of CRV's and RAV4's (that are awd) NEVER GET STUCK!!
I guess it mostly depends on the driver's use of the stupid pedal.

subaru's do ok on the sand. Just have to remember to get moving gently. Plus, those STI's have high performance summer tires from the factory. The low ground clearance is also a problem.You high center, and your toast. With sand, its all about the float.  Dually tires arent good for floating.. especially at 80psi.

I had a 97 Pathfinder from new, for a few years, ugh, that IFS and stock tires were a pain, ate a lot of sand, never got stuck, always air downed and but lost needed clearance.
