My Vehicle: '16 Crosstrek Touring
Arrow ...Another new member!

But he's in Canada..

Hi all,

In the past, I've joined other auto forums but stayed a lurker from day 1.

This time around, just thought I'd at least say hi to everyone

I purchased my 2016 Crosstrek Touring a couple weeks ago. First time buying a new car from the dealership so it was quite the experience. This one is a keeper!

I hope to read and learn from all the veterans on here and possibly contribute someday too

Cheers,

Good question -

I used to drive a prius...............................
That should be enough of a reason to want to switch cars lol.

But in all seriousness, I've been a Subaru enthusiast at heart since the original 2.5 RS days in 2000. Got into a 92x a couple years ago, and with my family expanding to 2 kids, just need something that's more practical yet capable. And something that isn't a prius.

Though I really miss the fuel economy of that car. Trade-off is that it was a prius

Thank you guys for the warm welcome.

Here's a pic of her! (Ironically, the gal who bought my prius came by for a visit when that pic was taken just a few days ago . that's why it's behind the Subie )

Since the 2.5RS days... that's when I began to discover the Subaru brand, though I was primarily concerned with the WRX and WRX STI models as the AWD combined in a sporty package (let alone a regular passenger car) was such an alien concept to me when I was still obsessed with 4WD off-road trucks.

Any plans for off-road adventures?

Yeah I hear ya. Back when the first WRX (bug and blob eye) was released in NA, it was a huge hype.

Maybe not quite the full-on off-road scene, maybe a bit of gravel back-roading
But not anytime soon, that's for sure. the car is just about to hit 1k clicks. Gonna give her more time to break-in before any fun starts.

By the way, would you or anyone happen to know how long the break-in period is for new cars these days? I guess Subies in General?
