My Vehicle: 2013 Crosstrek Limited.
Default Almost newbie

I thought i'd drop in and say hi. I'm 1 step from ordering a new Crosstek Limited in Tangerine . I don't need it for 8 weeks or so hence the order part. I can get it exactly the way I want it.

The back story:

The lease was up on my Prius ( 3 years 21K miles) and I figured I just drive my dads Silverado which I have had possession of for 2 years (2008 with 20K miles). I also have my summer car, a 2000 Trans Am Firehawk with 47K miles on it. A week after turning in the Prius he wants his truck back (when I'm done remodeling my living room) so he can sell it. So now I need a car! The Prius was my company car which I can't justify replacing because we don't drive for business that much anymore.

I had no idea what I wanted except AWD or 4wd and $30,000 or under. I stumbled upon the Crosstrek thinking it would be to small for us, our 2 kids and a yellow lab. Well I fell in love with it after the first test drive and dragged my family back that night for another! The car is me. I don't know how else to say it. A little off beat and bright freaking orange! So I get the best AWD in the industry plus a car that is fun to drive for my 3 mile one way commute when I'm not in the Firehawk.

I hope to place the order on Monday.

Welcome to the site, Sneezy. AWD for under $30k? Sounds like the Crosstrek is perfect for you. Let us know when you get it!

Thanks for joining!

You will not regret it! The XV Crosstrek is FANTASTIC!

I had a 2010 Volvo XC90 and traded that for a BRZ, then last month my bf and I got the Crosstrek and it's just absolutely AMAZING. It is now at 800 miles and rides so smooth. We are taking our first roadtrip down to Los Angeles next week for a car event and this awesome Crosstrek fits EVERYTHING. Our very first tank of gas went 360 miles and 2nd tank at 400 miles before the light went on! As it gets more break in miles, we're looking to see a better MPG.

Post pics when you get yours!

I get to pick mine up on Saturday. Way to early as it will be vehicle #4 in the driveway but OH WELL! My baby (Trans Am) goes in for a bumper repair from some old guy the hit me so I'll have a new car to drive all week!

The dealer jerked me around because I said not to the Zeibart, extended warranty and the "gold club" membership. I did relinquish and let them finance through my credit union but I would have preferred that I just did it all online. I now regret letting them do it. Why? I like to just do it my way!

Anyway, I get a new car soon!

Welcome to the boards Sneezy! The orange definitely does pop out at you. I happened across the XV the same way- looking for an affordable AWD vehicle.
