I would like to say hi and thanks for all the great info on here. The Crosstrek is our second Subaru. We had my wife's Outback in for service and the this sharp, sporty looking model caught my eye. I told my wife when I get my truck paid off I may have to look into getting one. Long story short, about three weeks ago a woman didn't stop for a stop sign and totaled my truck. I found this site and stated researching the Crosstrek, hence the thanks for all the great info. A week ago today I got my marine blue Trek. We call it the little ru. Well that's enough ramblings for now.
