Whats up? I'm sorry I do not currently own a XV Crosstrek (Yet). I have owned a total of seven Subarus. (02 WRX, 04 STi, 07 2.5i wagon, 2010 Impreza 2.5i hatch (Wife), 2011 OUTBACK CVT, 2011 WRX Sedan and 2012 Impreza 2.0i Sedan (Wife). I currently drive a 2011 WRX sedan and my wife currently has a 2012 Impreza 2.0i sedan. I am currently contemplating trading my WRX for a new desert khaki XV premium with Moonroof. I would order it to my likings (Flex-Strut bar, Sport grille, spoiler, splash guards, body moldings, rear bumper protector plus Pop Package#1 and a kicker sound system package etc....). I really like the looks of the XV and the utilitarian style. I like outdoorsy stuff and my mountain bike will fit excellent in the hatch area or with a hitch. I will gain some extra MPG and cheaper fill ups 87 vs 93 octane. I kinda wish I could get a 5 speed with a roof but I guess I am out of luck. Whats up with that. I enjoy driving my wifes CVT 2.0 Impreza. Its not that bad, actually if cruises pretty good. Well Im here and I hope to stay, I have been on the NASIOC sight since 2002.
Good luck and be safe.
