The drive to the top was fine in my Subaru. I personally wouldn't recommend it for a standard 2WD passenger car though (AWD crossover seems like the absolute minimum to me). There is no way I would bring an AWD crossover any further than the top of the switchbacks (it got a lot rougher right after that).

thanks!
the one time I've been down/up the switchbacks it would totally have been possible to get down in a Subaru, not sure about up-- but was quite some time ago
