My Vehicle: 2013 XV Crosstrek - Tangerine Pearl
Default Tangerine Pearl in Michigan

Hey everyone!

Ever since I saw my first Crosstrek this spring in Detroit...I wanted one. It was merging into my lane and I did a double take, what is that? Is that a Surbaru? I love it! I've always liked the Imprezas, so it's no surprise that I liked the Crosstrek. I never dreamed I'd be able to get one, but a dealership nearby had a used 2013 in ORANGE with 3k miles on it. It is a manual transmission, and I had to think for about 1.5 seconds since I'd never had a manual car before - but the day I went to test drive it, she ended up in my driveway that night.

This was all just 4 days ago, so we're still in the honeymoon phase - but I really love it.

This is also my first Subaru, so I'm excited to get some Subaru, as well as some Crosstrek info.

Nice to be here!


Krista

Welcome! As a fellow orange owner... I know the love. It was an undeniable love at first sight for me and it's definitely a polarizing color. Be sure to poke around threads and what not. May I suggest losing the chrome immediately for a nice flat black plasti-dip coating. Makes the orange really stand out! ;-)

The honeymoon phase hangs around for a while so enjoy it.

Once again welcome!

I will admit, after surfing the site, I'm loving the tinted windows and plasti-dipped orange XVs. Looks really sharp!

Congratulations! And a great color choice.

I've had mine nearly a month, now, and the honeymoon is still going strong.

Welcome to the site, k2! It's great seeing a few used Crosstreks popping up now, after a year or so of being on the lots. Obviously we all love our vehicles so we aren't thinking of selling any time soon, but it's good that the cheaper option is out there now, and 3k miles on a Subaru is a grain of sand on the beach! And you're absolutely right, the black badges on the TOP look awesome.

Thanks for joining!

You're right Alex. As it was, it was only on the lot 36 hours...and someone had just gotten done test driving it when I showed up!
