I have to admit... I fell in love with this XV the minute I first saw one about 6 months ago. I just bought a 2013 Limited CVT with option pkg 8 for my wife for Valentine's Day.... Traded her 07 Jetta Wolfsburg Edition. Satin Pearl White with Ivory leather, CVT and nav pkg.

I'm a Jeep guy... but wanted her to have an AWD that was fun and economical.... THIS IS IT!

With the extreme variance in weather we have here in Reno... it's the pefect vehicle for us. The snow on the Summit of Donner Pass during the winter months can be severe at times and my Jeep has always been the choice for winter trips.... NOT ANYMORE!!!!

Looking into learning all I can about our first Subaru since I do all my own maintenance and upkeep on whatever we own.

congrats & welcome :) Lucky wife you got there! We've had our crosstrek for 8 days but it's more for hubby cuz he drives further to work than I do & it gets better gas mileage than our Tacoma! I love driving it though I'm very in love with our Crosstrek :)

Hey there, welcome! I am a little biased, but I think you guys will love your Crosstrek and the pearl white is beautiful. What kind of Jeep do you have?
Thanks all.... I have a 2004 Wrangler.... slightly modified for weekly abuse offroad, but remains my DD as well....

Friggin' awesome Jeep is awesome! It's a change from all the Wranglers I see daily that will never see a day on a trail ;D

Would be cool if you would go wheelin' with the XV and the Jeep to see how the XV does despite being a soft off-roader.

Thanks! LOL!! Yeah... already showed the wife the 2" Sumo lift... she rolled her eyes!!! HAHAHA!

I wouldn't mind test the XV out on some light trails... maybe.... but the Jeep is my 'adrenaline rush'

Here is a poser pic on a 36" wall... lol
