My Vehicle: 2019 Crosstrek
Default New 2.0 Long Term

Now that the new 2.0 Direct Injection engine has been out for a couple years, I would like to hear from anyone who has put some miles on it as to how things are holding up. Any issues?

Ive got a bit over 30,000 miles on my 2018. September will be two years since I bought it new.

Not a single issue with anything thus far.

I have had my 2018 Subaru Crosstrek for 18months and I am at 75,000 miles. I have done every listed service interval and short of being attractive to deer in the first month I have had no problems with it.

Great to hear that they are holding up well. The carbon issues are overblown in my opinion!

Wow. 75k in 18 months? That is a lot!

I have about 19000 miles or 30000 km on my 2 year old “2018” limited crosstrek. I changed the oil every 1000 for the first 3000 mIles and about 5 times since. I change it every 5000 km or every 3100 miles. I also run nothing but premium gas. There is a pronounced difference in mid level speed. I hear droning from regular gas.

At this point the car feels “broken in.
It revs freely and quietly. After it’s warmed up I’m never afraid to hit the red line with it. Frankly it’s a different kind of power, more rev based, but the car isn’t really underpowered. IMHO. Also the documented .81 on the skid pad is terrific for an SUV. This car handles!

As far as power goes, I think a lot of professional automotive reviewers are jaded by the horsepower levels currently available in luxury cars and sports cars and forget what power levels used to be like 20 and 30 years ago. For a car of its size, I find my Crosstrek perfectly peppy. I wasn't expecting it to accelerate like a Porsche, you know? I think those claims of "sluggish" or "underpowered" are unfair and possibly hurt sales when people are comparison shopping.

I'd call the 2.0's power "adequate".


It gets up to speed perfectly fine. I can get up to highway speeds on a freeway on-ramp enough to safely merge into traffic. I can pass on a 2 lane road when I have a good opening.


For that reason, I wouldn't call it "slow" or "underpowered".



But I would also not call the Crosstrek "peppy", "fast", or "fun" either.


It gets the job done without any fanfare or drama
