Here in the Pacific Northwest seems like every other car is a Subaru, and for good reason. Great all around adventure exploration car. I needed a dog/bike hauler car and something that could get me to trail heads on forest service roads. Initially I was going for a Forester but my wife insisted on the Crosstrek for the looks. Fine with me. We have had the car only for a few days and unfortunately it came with a rattle from new. I have already scheduled a service for that, but otherwise the car is very impressive and fun to drive. One surprise was how peppy the engine is in urban driving. Much more than I was expecting. I am going to have a lot of fun in this car! BTW, silver Limited with all the options. Also have scheduled a trailer hitch install.
