My Vehicle: MY13 Subaru Crosstrek, Tangerine Orange Pearl
Default Crosstrek spotted in Bay Area

Finally saw another Crosstrek on the road. Driving home from work (southband on the 680 over the Martinez bridge) on Friday and spotted a white Crosstrek. Pulled up alongside for a few seconds to try to get the attention of the driver and passenger (a young Asian woman and middle-aged Asian man, respectively), but they were intent on the road ahead of them. I'm glad that my little Crosstrek is pretty unique on the road, but it's also nice to see a fellow XV driver.

I still haven't seen one. Going to Oregon on the weekend so maybe, just maybe.

I just saw my first one in Los Angeles. Still surprised how rare they are.

I've only seen one in the vicinity of San Jose at a school.

It seriously caught me off guard because the only other ones I've seen are at dealers!

It seems the 1 or 2 Subaru dealers I've passed in SoCal have at least 2 Crosstreks on their lots, so hopefully people will start buying!

At a quick glance, though I saw one yesterday, but it was a 5-door Impreza.
I think in the last 6 months, I've only seen 2 new 5-door Imprezas & a couple WRXs.

They just aren't very common around here (Houston, TX).

Not to play into the stereotype, but do a lot of people in Texas have the mindset, "If I'm gonna have AWD/4WD then I will get a truck"?

Keep an eye out because i just picked one up on 02/12/13 from Capitol Subaru. They had about 10 on their lot and was told this was the most inventory they've had on this model. I ended up with a Silver Crosstrek.

Looks like I'll be on the lookout for a Silver XV next time I'm in San Jose

Nope but there's one more on the road - mine. If you seen an Orange XV on the road anytime soon it's probably me. I have seen one other one recently. I think it was black - driving on Washington.
