The best way to put a bike on the back of your Subaru is a start with the correct hitch. There is only one single best option, that is to purchase a Subaru trailer hitch have the dealership installed it. It is a little pricey, but it’s the best way to be insured that the hitch will be installed to factories safety requirements. After market hitches are mounted to the bottom of the chassis, which is not designed for trailer hitches. Subaru dealerships will remove the bumper cover and bolt the trailer hitch in-line with the cars frame work, in order to protect the passengers in a rear collision.
The original Subaru hitch is Subaholic’s only choice.
Make sure you check out the following video to get the whole story. <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jB60gz7ZvfA“> The Subaru trailer hitch comes with a 1.25″ receiver opening. Given that fact that many bike racks are 2″ mount, you will need an adapter.

Subaru has souped up the WRX STI to create the type RA or “record attempt” version. Carbon fiber roof panel, carbon fiber wing and pumping up the horse power to 310 makes it very meaty product for this rare 500 unit production vehicle. The following is a breakdown on what to expect on the sticker of the WRX STI type RA.
I got my first look at the 2019 Subaru Ascent at the Houston auto show
I got my first look at the 2019 Subaru Ascent at the Houston auto show. This is definitely a much improved replacement for the old Tribeca. One of the first things I did was jump in the backseats in the third row. Trying it out with one of my coworkers, we both are a little stocky in stature. At first I was feeling a little cramped, but eventually I settled in and decided that it was certainly comfortable enough for a short road trip. It is a pleasant improvement over the old Tribeca and I remain happy with the fact that Subaru is not making these grossly large vehicles found from many of the other auto makers. The Ascent will fit in most parking spots and garages of your average home.
The 2019 Subaru Ascent is a handsome looking SUV that is equipped with Subaru’s updated infotainment systems and eyesight technology is standard. What is interesting about the new Ascent is the engine Subaru has decided to go with. Reaching back to their roots and putting a turbo powered 2.4 liter newly designed engine in all the trim levels. No option for a six cylinder. Which makes a lot of sense… smaller blocks, better performance and maintaining a decent fuel economy. This car is certainly powerful enough to move all three rows full of passengers and equipment down the road.
It is nice to see Subaru return to third row vehicle and it is certainly grander than the discontinued Tribeca and not an over burdened sized SUV.
Have you ever been driving down the road and see one of those Thule shells on top of a car and you think to yourself… why? The answer is obvious, people desire more room for their stuff. Think of a couple of common things that you travel with that would be better on top of your roof. How about camping equipment, tents, chairs, shovels and pales, scuba diving equipment, hunting and fishing gear, suitcases, duffel bags, backpacks, pillows and blankets, pet gear and cages, golf clubs, an inflatable boat and oars…. guess we could go on and on and on about what you could put on top of you car.
I got first hand experience of Thule M624. It was easy to setup and pleasant to operate. A smooth surface and cool aerodynamics protects your cargo from the wind, the elements and bugs. It offers ample storage for most people even though this considered smaller of the cargo carriers. It offers a 16 inch ceiling and and sturdy materials that have a streamline profile that won’t interfere much with the car’s gas performance. Offering a smaller footprint than some of the Thule larger carriers but very functional for most people’s needs. What you should consider when selecting a cargo carrier, is to make sure that it fits your needs. Sometimes big is not necessarily better.
Making up our second choice would be Yakima. Yakima offers sleeker designs for those who are more concerned about looks or function.
