Anyone else feel their performance suffers radically at elevation? Just curious, although the XV is by no means a WRX, it's performance is not terrible down here in the bay area.
Yes, performance at higher elevations suffers noticeably.
Some of the higher elevations with climbs, I never find myself going above 4th gear. On the more severe elevations and steep climbs, I may even have to resort to using the lowest gear available.

If you want dirt roads closest to the SF Bay Area that are public and legal, see http://www.clubcrosstrek.com/forums/...ings-2453.html
I would love a local meetup and/or cruise but so far there's not enough regular SF Bay Area users, as far as I'm aware, to support such an event. I would gladly host, but unless we get a good amount of members to say they will attend, I won't expect much.
