I live in CO. Parker. I love my Crosstrek. This is our third Subaru (the first two were Outbacks). Have not done much off-roading (some mild stuff when I go fishing at the Alpine lakes) and a little trail (to the head trail at Gibson Lake). This is a fun car to own. It is awesome.
Hey guys, new crosstrek owner in the springs. Only issue I have with the one we got is the color. (my wife liked the desert khaki) just had a question about light off roading, staying on the main trail, how does the crosstrek do on steeper hills? And how is the ride quality off road ?
Sounds good. I might take it up Cheyenne mountain today, then maybe pikes peak sometime soon. Going up to boulder might be some fun, try some new trails, the only trail I take in the springs is over Cheyenne mountain over to cripple creek, but I used to take the fun route in the lifted jeep that we traded in for the xv
So I took the xv up old stage rd through the mountain all the way out to cripple creek. All I can say is that I'm surprised by how easily is was able to hadle most of the terrain. And the desert khaki hides the dirt pretty well. 3 days and 200 miles, haven't been disappointed. I'll post some pics of the journey soon
Newbie here in Strasburg, CO. We go camping a lot but not in the last 7 days we've had the XV. In 9 days we leave for a 2 week road trip to Seattle and down the west coast - I'm excited to rack up the miles!
