The Crosstrek is my first Subaru too. I've lusted after the WRX for a long time though. This is a very capable vehicle and I suspect it will be around for quite some time. Although I love the fuel economy in the initial version I hope they introduce a much sportier version at some point. The Crosstrek would be a ton of fun with an extra 100hp.

Welcome, RubySu, glad for you to join us. I always wanted a Wrangler growing up and I still want a CTS-V....maybe one day it will sit next to the Crosstrek.

A CTS-V wagon with a 6-speed manual would be my dream CTS-V... Mmmmmmm just the though of the ultimate grocery getter that would beat most vehicles on dry pavement gets me jittery!

Nothing wrong with the CTS-V. From what I've read, it's great for the older car enthusiast who supposedly wants to smoke ricers 8)

Thank you all for that kind welcome! I miss that V so.... I sold it to a man out in Utah and as part of the deal, I would drive it to him, from Chas. SC. no less. In return, he bought a 1st class ticket for me to get back home. When I signed over the title, that car had just over 9K on the odometer. I have a gentleman s agreement that when he gets tired of it, he ll sell it back to me. As of Dec. 2012, he still has it as I emailed him around Christmas. I didn't tell him I hit 179 mph on way out there! I am not kidding either! 179! I could see my heart beating through my shirt! I still don t know what came over me having never been over 120 or so before that!

Anyway, that post about the 6 speed Station wagon - that is the awesome truth brother! Someday, that version you describe is going to sell at Barrett Jackson for a half mil. No doubt!

Great to be here! Go easy on those rice burner cars now, I used to have a Si and when that vtec kicked in, that motor would scream. All good my friends, all good.

An extra 100hp would be cool but defeat the purpose of it being a fuel efficient vehicle. You could always get the wrx and change up the suspension to emulate the XV's ride.

I'm cool with the tradeoff since I bought this to rack up some serious road trip miles. There are just moments where I wish I could tap some extra HP and go nuts.

I m with that thinking too- wishing for extra 100 hp every now and then. Nothing wrong with the need for speed! I do like the great mileage but when I start rowing thru my manual at high revs, say up to 5000, it really kills the mileage but it gives me a shot of that great boxer sound....which is addictive.
