Subaru Ascent vs 30 miles of dirt roads, potholes and mud puddles.

I went out on an adventure yesterday and met up with a local landing party. The road is called North Fork Road near North Bend, WA. It was pouring rain and cold, but the company more than made up for it.

We have driven in a lot of deep snow in the 2023 Subaru Ascent, but this was the first time in clear dirt/puddles. The climb was handled fantastically. We had 6 people and our 60kg dog in the car, plus some of our camping gear.

This video is the first part of the return trip, but I thought I’d share it anyway. There are two very large puddles around 5:30 in the video below that we’re not sure how deep they are exactly, but we got through without a problem. There was also a Subaru Crosstrek in the group that had no problems.

We have 18″ wheels with Falken Wildpeak A/T tires, plus the full primitive racing skid plate (front + rims, transmission and rear diff plates). We never hit the ground in the space. I think we could have fought Way too much harder. Never slipped, never engaged in x-mode or anything. Loved driving the Climb on that road. :)

He tried to make the car as dirty as possible. This was the next day:
