Hi all! I'm taking delivery of a 2017 Crosstrek Premium (5MT) from Carvana on Tuseday, and I couldn't be more excited! I've been slogging by in a rental spec 2013 Civic for the last few years, and it's been MISERABLE. No stick, no fun to drive...It really was more of a transportaiton appliance than a car.

Sadly, the color of the Crosstrek I picked is beige, but we can't always have everything we want... It's my third Subie, after a bugeye and a hawkeye Impreza over the years. Honestly, more than anything I might be looking forward to being able to change the oil filter without having to reach up through the exhaust headers. Still got a few burn scars from that...

So I'm pretty well versed in the EJ, but what sort of things should I keep an eye on with the FB? Am I still gonna have to look at upgrading to MLS head gaskets at 100k or so? Any quirks or warning signs of major catastrophe on the later 1st gen Crosstreks?
