Welcoem, CrissCross, I love the name.

We all think the Crosstrek is an awesome vehicle, but of course we are all a little bit biased . Please feel free to post up as many questions as you may have about the XV before you (hopefully) purchase one.

Thanks for signing up!

Welcome CrissCrossAppleSauce!

If you are looking for more information, you came to the right place! One of the things I love about this forum is how generous members are with photographing all their modifications. Nothing like being able to see exactly what something would look like on your crosstrek before trying it yourself.

so i went out on a test drive today in a 5 speed and i'm pretty excited. the car felt pretty good although initially the car didnt feel as if it accelerates as quickly as my 2005 impreza. the drive however was very enjoyable and as long as i'm not intending on drag racing, i think the car performs well.

some questions i had that i didnt get to experience while driving...

what are your experiences with the car in bad weather? I'm pretty confident with subaru's handling in snow/rain but have any of you felt excessive swaying in the car when its windy? i've had such experiences in a 2005 impreza and 2011 legacy. sometimes its tricky keeping the car in a straight line even in a slight wind.

headlights. for non-HID, how good is the reach? I'm sure the increased height of the car helps but sometimes i'm blind as a bat and need good bright lights.

thanks and i look forward to your replies.

CCAS-
I live in the Chicago area, although called the Windy City it has nothing to do with the weather. That said, we do get good winds here, what with the flat lands...I do notice a little wind wrangling in winds above 15-20 MPH, not sure that any car is immune to it at that wind speed. As for the rain and snow...it handles very very well. I'm coming from a 4WD Jeep (91 Grand Wagoneer) and a 2003 BMW 330Xi (AWD), out handles both.

First, welcome to the board.

I've had an 2006 impreza sedan and a 2009 impreza hatch that I thought were pretty solid unless it was gusty out or excessively windy. I have never had a problem with slight winds.

It's been kind of windy where I am the last week and I'm finding that the Crosstrek feels pretty solid. I find that I don't adjust the steering wheel as much as I did in my 2009 imp when the winds pick up.
