My Vehicle: 2013 XV Crosstrek CVT Desert Khaki
Default New (to be) owner

I don't know if I am jumping the gun joining the forum but I would love an XV Crosstrek. It would be my first Subaru. I have been wanting to get a Subaru for a long time but haven't been able to afford one until now. The Crosstrek is the car I have been waiting for.

If things work out I will be going to the dealer today to look at a Dessert Khaki Premium CVT with no extras. I made an offer of $21,600 via their website and they accepted. Hopefully they won't try to stick me with any unnecessary extras and fees to jack up the price. I will have to watch out for that. I have done my research on Consumer Reports and feel that I am ready.

I am in South Florida and have yet to see an XV Crosstrek on the road. I probably have better chances of winning the lottery than seen one down here.

Well I hope all goes well! Mine is a khaki as well and the color has really grown on me.

Quite a few XV owners on this forum are first-time Subaru owners as well. If it all works out well for you, definitely stick around and let us know how you like it and what mods/additions you make.

Welcome to the forum Hector, hope everything goes well with your purchase. I like the khaki color a lot, Id probably says its second place after tangerine.

I like khaki since it is an original color. You don't see it in other cars. The dealers down here mainly sell black, white, red, blue and silver. It is rare to find tangerine and even more so khaki.

Default Re: New (to be) owner

Well, I technically got my Crosstrek last night. It won't arrive until the end of the month. Overall the deal came out pretty good, although I think it could have been better. But, when it comes to buying a car it is almost impossible to get what you want.

At least I got the car exactly like I wanted. Base premium with CVT and nothing else, in the color I wanted.

I am now doing some research on some items I want to buy for the car.

1. custom fit all weather floor mats, either from Weathertech or Husky.
2. hitch. suggestions appreciated.
3. hood wind deflector
4. I was going to get seat covers but I think I will instead do the Scotchgard treatment. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Maybe I should post this with the questions under another topic?

First off, welcome to the site, Hector, glad to have you here.

As for your item list, all of those things have been discussed on the forum so I am sure you can find information on what you are looking for. If not, please feel free to make a new thread! Also, we always love to see pics of members' Crosstreks, so once yours arrive it would be awesome for you to share.

Thanks for joining!
