A search of the Subaru website for the word "towing" on Oct 5, 2016

http://www.subaru.com/customer-support.html

Found the following Q&A:

Q "What recommendations does Subaru have about towing my vehicle behind a motor home?"
A "Please follow the recommendations outlined in the Owner's Manual if there is a need to tow a Subaru vehicle.  The best way to transport your vehicle is a flatbed tow truck with ALL wheels off the ground.  Always follow the precautions and recommendations outlined in the Owner's Manual if flat towing with all wheels on the ground is unavoidable in an emergency situation."

We have been flat towing our 2003 Subaru Forester (5 speed manual trans) with four wheels on the ground since 2004 behind three different Class A RVs (one gas, two diesel) for many thousand miles with no problems or incidents.  Falcon Roadmaster # 5250 towbar.

Since 2003, Subaru has changed the caster and chamber on all their models...so, per Remco, they are not towable!  The only exception is the Outback, it can be flat towed.

Have towed our 2012 Forester 4down for three seasons. Tires are wearing perfectly. Drives as well as our previous 6 Subies. No major wear and tear I guess.
