More towing

Took a 3 hour drive over to OH yesterday and picked up my daughters first car. And yes, I’m aware I pushed the towing limits on this one since uhaul lists their auto transporter at 2200lbs (which I’m almost certain is a lot more than it actually weighs) and Subaru lists this Impreza at almost 3200. 72mph with the cruise on and the empty trailer 3 hours there. Would have gone faster but the trailer got a pretty good vibration above that (likely unbalanced tires). 65mph for the slightly over 3 hours home. Trans in manual mode, tow haul mode, gear selector set to 5 so it would shift like normal 1-5 but never grab 6. 2150 RPM at 65 and only needed to downshift to 4th for big hills. As usual found it better the manually drop to 4th at the bottom of the hill and maintain speed than wait for the cruise to lose 3mph then have the trans initiate the kick down and fight to make those 3mph back while going uphill. Enclave was perfect, averaged 17.3mpg on the loaded return trip. Wouldn’t try it in the mountains but for flat northeast OH to WNY it was no problem.

I LOVE that it's the same color as your Enclave!
