I think that's the best mod out there!

I'll jump in on the tangy party! The orange looks good dirty and there is still something that just looks amazing after a good wash. I never saw a color that looked like that in the sun.

Hit the 1,000-mile mark with the car yesterday, and I'm still madly in love with the thing.

Anyhow, here's a shot from a mountain roadtrip today. The car's exterior is pretty washed out, but I thought I'd post it anyway in case anyone wants to see proof that the Crosstrek's back seat can comfortably hold three passengers:

Great looking Subi! Welcome to the club!

I've had my Crosstrek for about 3 weeks now, and the more I drive it, the more I notice how amazing the thing handles! Hopefully you've noticed the same thing as you've recently hit the 1000 mile mark.

Thanks! It's a great club to be in.

Yep ... overall I'm VERY pleased with the way the Crosstrek handles. I'm noticing that more and more, especially as I get more used to the CVT and learn to adjust my driving style accordingly.

And seriously, the thing goes anywhere!! I tackled a ridiculous ATV trail with the Subaru last weekend, and it didn't complain in the least.

Yeah, the CVT is definitely something to get used to. I'm accustomed to really putting my foot in the accelerator and just going for it, but the CVT doesn't like that too much, so I've had to adjust how I feed it. Now that I'm more used to the way it works, it just feels right.

And yes, it goes just about anywhere you want it to! I haven't had the opportunity to really go of road yet, but I'm definitely itching to.

Happy trails!

Yeah, the Crosstrek will never make your average lead-footed teenager happy, but once you get used to the way the transmission works it's apparent that the car hits a nice sweet-spot combination of torque and fuel economy ... it's not the underpowered machine that some of the critics say it is.

And thanks!

Here are a couple more "glamour" shots of the Crosstrek I took this weekend, while on a long drive on a two-track up in the mountains.





T've been taking more pictures of the car than anything else lately!
