Default New guy on the block!

Hey folks! I recently got rid of my truck and came out on the other side in a 2016 crosstrek and boy do I love it! Only been in it for 2 days now but I can't walk away after parking without looking back at it! Already has plenty of comments and overall couldn't be happier. I do lots of hiking, camping, backpacking, etc. Attached a picture of the new trek in pearl white. Located in NC! Thanks for welcoming me with open arms and happy trekking!

Welcome to the club!

If you haven't already, I highly recommend you check out the New to Subaru thread as well as the break-in procedures.


May I ask why you chose the Crosstrek? Was it the balanced combination of small car, reasonable space, light off-road capability, competent on-road manners and handling, all combined with surprisingly-decent fuel economy?

Any plans for off-road adventures? It seems with your outdoor lifestyle, I would imagine off-road adventuring isn't far from your listed interests

Thanks! My parents both owned subarus when I was younger. The crosstrek had my attention for a few months considering how much $ I had to dish out for gas in my truck. Almost every weekend I travel to a university to volunteer and play guitar at a contemporary church. This trip alone is over 4 hours round trip. So overall the crosstrek won me on getting much better mileage than my truck did and still having that off-road outdoors feel and capability.

Congratulations and best of luck with the new ride! IMO, it is a combination of form and functionality. I have no regrets.
