My Vehicle: XV Crosstrek Limited - Metallic Dark Gray - 2013
Default Hi from the Twin Cities, MN

Just drove home my brand new Crosstrek! They are selling like hotcakes here at all the dealers near Mpls/St Paul (perfect market for it).

Most dealers are selling at full MSRP and expecting you to buy in advance/order them. Found one on the lot...had everything I wanted, but wasn't White...so I got the dark charcoal Limited with the Popular package, spoiler and body side molding. About $1400 under MSRP. (I see that dealers 100 + miles away from the cities are selling at a similar discount, so it's just hot in our area.)

Will take a while to get used to climbing in with the raised floor...it's way different than my HHR and also different than our pickup truck that I have to almost climb up into. :-)

This has a truck like ride to it...definitely feels "crossovery".... ;-) Of course the roads here are at their worst heaving and rutted from the thaw/freeze cycle we get in spring, so that isn't helping.

Welcome. Being in Texas I don't to try it out in the snow but all the feedback I hear regarding Crosstreks and winter weather is pretty awesome.

I had a Forester about 10 years ago. The XV feels even sturdier and stable. Subaru has the BEST AWD for both snow AND rainy roads. I have a long daily commute and really wanted to get back to the security of staying on the pavement.

Hello and welcome! Sounds as if you got a great deal on your XV. I bought in November and got $500 flat under Msrp. Not bad, I guess. Have almost 8K and lovin it. Is this your first Subaru? Was for me. Enjoy!
