Re: Hi From Maryland
Welcome to Club Crosstrek, thank you for signing up. Congrats on the purchase, the dark gray looks awesome. I had some issues with the power, too, before I test drove/purchased the Crosstrek. A lot of reviews said that with 148hp there was just no way it could have enough power (this was before the car was available in the US). I really like Subaru's, though, so as soon as a local dealer got an XV on the lot I went and test drove it and was very pleased.
Now, 9,000 miles later, I feel like the car gets more and more fun to drive. It is the perfect all around package, IMO. Sure, I would like a turbo thrown in there just for fun, but I don't think it's a necessity.
Sorry I didn't see the thread earlier to move, but it has been done now.
