Default Thinking about getting a crosstrek!


My 2003 honda civic is falling apart on me at 210k miles. It's time to upgrade.

I'm really seeing a lot of positive feedback on the crosstrek. This would be my first subaru.
I'm starting to fall in love with this brand and I don't even have one yet. ha.

Was thinking about getting a toyota tacoma but I've noticed that even some used ones with pretty high mileage can cost as much as a new crosstrek. I keep coming back to a crosstrek.

Anyway, nice to meet you all. Will let you know when I'm officially apart of the subaru family.

This is my first Subaru and I highly recommend it. Once you've put a couple thousand miles on one I think you'll understand why so many people drive them for life.

lol I did the same thing. Picked mine up Monday and I'm really enjoying it so far.

Feel free to ask questions and definitely keep us updated if (when?) you get one. Be forewarned, they're very popular; dealers are having a hard time keeping them on the lots.

Hey, MtKile, thanks for signing up.

I know we're all a bit biased here, but we all seem to really love our Crosstreks. This is my third Subaru and every one has been great. If you end up getting one please let us know!

I have to be honest, I've become the "I'll drive" guy in the house since i purchased the Crosstrek. I have 2 housemates and i have always had a beater i was working on, or something that just wouldn't fit 3 people comfortably and just never drove. Now i want to drive all the time. I'm personally very happy i purchased the XV, and what was said earlier about dealerships selling out of them is very true. While I was purchasing mine, 2 others drove off the lot.

You have made a good choice. This is also my first Subie and I can honestly say it won't be my last. I'm a 4x4 guy and love to go offload. I do have my toys but love the XV on the road and AWD is awesome in the snow and ice covered roads. It's mainly for my bride and I feel very confident when she is behind the wheel in inclimate weather.

you won't regret it if you buy a Crosstrek they are awesome We also have a 2005 Toyota Tacoma I love our truck but I also love driving the Crosstrek...it's fun to drive & as someone else said it is great for snowy weather This is also our 1st Subaru but it won't be our last because we will probably be getting another Crosstrek when this one is paid off in about 2-3 years for me & our son will get the Tacoma. Post some pics if/when you get your Crosstrek.
