My Vehicle: 2013 Subaru Crosstrek XV Limited Crystal Black Silica
Default West Coast Heat Wave

How are everyone's XV's holding up in this ridiculous heat? Having little to no "up-and-go" power with the AC blasting is a bummer and I'm starting to regret getting a black car with leather interior haha.

Move to Texas. Then we can have a conversation about ambient temperatures in the triple digits.

Not hitting me too bad on the West side of LA (barely touching 80 at my house -- we don't have A/C and we're fine), but go into the valley and it's in the triple digits. My work is on the west side, too, so I haven't had to really test the A/C that hard. I have it on and it's great, but it's not truly hot in my part of town.

Stay cool! 8)

I have been very pleased with my XV and its response to driving in our horrendous summer heat. A/C runs constantly, and my XV still has plenty of pep. I have experienced lesser gas mileage of about 1/2 mile per gallon, still getting anywhere from 33 to 34 mpg. Much better than I expected when running the a/c!

Just a little glimpse of what we're feeling in my neck of the woods.

My friend took this pic while in her chevy.. her only comment:
"Either it's really hot or my car is on fire". hahaha!

And... as we all love the Summer when the ice cream truck swings by to bring us our favorite goodies...
Seems Ice Cream trucks in Arizona only sell "soft serve"...

LOL Ikon!! Classic.

Yep... Broke our own record today, by heading up near 120degrees! Woo hoo! And to think... this isn't even the hottest part of the year yet. :-D

So, I tried to remember when we last had even a drop of rain. I think it was 7 months ago in January. Thought I'd check it out to make sure if memory served me correctly. I checked on the date range from Jan 1 to Jun 28th.

According to Rainlog.org, I was right. Good gawd that's a lot of zeros!
