Hi. Wife bought the first 2004 Subaru, a Forester. She likes them. Me, not so much.
I would be driving a new Camry, instead of a Crosstrek, if i fit in a Camry. Didn't like the Rav4 price for a 2nd car.
Took delivery of the 2019 Crosstrek at the end of August. Before buying, checked Gov recall site , no recalls. Now there are 3.
The test drive went ok. Low speed , local route.
Mostly like the Crosstrek, the paddle shifter seems fun, even at my age of 75. (Old 60s drag racer)
The premium model is very noisy. The passanger rear door may not be sealing correctly? Any stone that the tires kick up hits bare metal. Car seems to not have any under coating or sound deading materals?
Great 2nd car for short trips. First check of gas milage was 29.7 mpg. Mostly on back country roads.
Thank You for listening. Joe1944USA.
