thats good. i'm not sure why i've experienced the swaying in the other 2 subarus, but it seems a few others have experienced it as well in other 2011 legacys. i guess it might be related to their softer suspension

So.

Call me crazy. But i test drove the 5 spd xv again as well as the wrx hatch. While the wrx was fun and just the power id love to play with, i honestly liked the xv more! It just feels like a better fit and is more practical?

In any case, i pulled the trigger! Will hopefully receive the car end of next week. Im SUPER EXCITED.

Ive always had an eye for the tangerine and thats what i went with! Funny thing was, as i pulled into the dealership, i was met with 2 cars parked at the front entrance. One being the tangerine 5 spd on the left and the other being the wrb wrx hatch on the right. My two top choices egging me on to take em home.

Cant wait to take the xv on an outdoor trip

Too bad you had the break the wrx's heart and take home the crosstrek. Great choice going with the Tangerine!

So I picked up my crosstrek this past wednesday and i've already clocked 425.0 miles as of this weekend!

all i can say is i love the car and have had nothing but compliments so far! i take back what i said earlier about the car being underpowered. the power really is adequate, i just have to drive it differently than my old impreza. i guess i could say the power isnt in the same powerband that i'm used to so i have to bring the car up to slightly higher revs.

oh, and i'll just leave this here...
