Hello from Chico, CA
Hello. I'm hoping to buy a Crosstrek when teh 2014's come out. I realize they likely won't have any changes over the 2013's, expecially since they've had the Crosstrek in Europe for years, this is just my timeline.
I'll be downsizing from my 2006 Tacoma 4 Door. I still haul a lot of stuff from time to time, so I'm hoping this little car will handle it. I'll get a trailer for the larger stuff, but folding the seats down will have to do for the dogs and backpacking/camping gear.
I find that I don't go "wheelin" in my Tacoma, really, and I hate getting 17mpg. I'd like a zippy (not powerful) car that easy to drive, gets great gas mileage, and can still take me up the fire roads and dirt paths I love to explore.
I'm thrilled there is a place to ask questions and learn from others' experiences!
