Thanks everyone! I drive 100 miles a day to work (50 there and back)...so it won't take me long to learn my new ride. ;-)

I think my HD radio will take the longest to learn....luckily spring break is soon and my son will be home from college ...he'll show me!

I do miss my speaker system in my HHR....might have to upgrade speakers...we'll see...it does sound better when I turn the volume up...and I haven't figured out how to set the tone/etc...it really needs a speaker in the back though.... ;-)

I'm actually looking forward to driving to work today...LOL!!!!

From an HHR to an XV Crosstrek- gotta love that. Welcome back to Subaru and welcome to the club.

My horse is a Paint...

I am enjoying my Crosstrek more each day! I like it way better than my old Forester (although it wasn't bad, )....after the Forester I purchased a Pontiac Vibe AWD in 2005. My son (college) is now driving that car and loves it. Has almost 130,000 miles and running beautifully. He had the choice to take my 2010 HHR when I traded for my Crosstrek, he decided to keep his cute Vibe.

I was glad he did, I felt the AWD in the Vibe made it a safer choice for him. Driving the HHR in the winter is an art form. LOL

When he gets home on spring break he is going to be drooling over the Crosstrek though! I already asked him to look at my speaker system ...he has done a lot of speaker/radio changes in the Vibe successfully.

I am getting ridiculously high MPG according to the gauge...someone said to subtract a couple MPG from that to get closer to actual...still....it's showing 40 MPG.

I will calc it when I fill up in a few days.

Yeah the in-car computer is probably 1 or 2 MPG higher than actual, but you are still averaging a great MPG.

Also, I had never heard of a Paint horse.
