This is our first Subaru and we love it so far. We did our homework before buying and everything we found said why doesn't everyone own a Subaru. My parents owned one 30 plus years ago and from what they told me they loved it, my father especially since we lived in Maine at the time. He said the Subaru was a tank and he would drive it through two foot snow drifts without an issue. I hope to get to know more of you in the years to come since I prefer to do my own service and can not wait to get your tips on how to care for our Crosstrek.
