New Crosstrek Owner in Westchester
Just picked up my new Crosstrek this morning. I've been lurking on this site for a few days before I made my decision and I hope I can contribute something helpful for someone going forward.
This car is replacing a 2005 Legacy GT Limited. I loved that car - it could get up to 80 MPH in no time flat and still looked brand new. Unfortunately, the turbo bit the dust so I decided to go the inexpensive non-turbo route and get an Impreza. As soon as I saw the Crosstrek I was sold and I got the grey with black interior - very nice. The Legacy had all the bells and whistles but the Crosstrek is such a different beast it shouldn't be a problem adjusting. I am worried about the storage space when I have passengers as the Legacy had a nice sized trunk. I'll be checking this board to see what other people are doing in this regard. My car is a lease so I won't be modding this car in any way but I will be carrying bikes and kayaks on the roof.
