Subarus to the Rescue! Watch Imprezas and WRXs Pull Cars, Trucks and SUVs Out of Trouble

Have you seen a video of a Subaru WRX pulling a Hemi V8-powered Dodge Charger patrol car out of some deep snow-trouble that’s been making the internet rounds? According to Jalopnik and NASIOC poster Kbraun, this incident happened in Hazel Park, Michigan, earlier this week, when WRX owner Bobby dropped in to help the snow-stuck cop.

If you’re wondering, the Scooby did well, and it’s not the only time that the WRX, its STI and regular Impreza comrades have helped other drivers in need.

In fact, there’s a wealth of online videos showing Subaru’s compact model lines rescuing all sorts of vehicles from all kinds of troubles and conditions, from trucks on the highway to bad-ass Jeeps trapped in the mud, and you can watch a collection of them right below the jump.
