Just bought a red crosstrek. Historically I'm a pick up guy, but 16 years ago I started a job with a 25 mile commute and have since had two kids. The practical side of me forced me to buy cars based soley on mpg and safety. I'm an outdoorsy guy so it has been torture driving my Hyundai elantra and trying to strap canoes and stuff to the roof. So when I was new car shopping I decided to look at subaru because of the all wheel drive. I came across the crosstrek and thought it would be the perfect compromise. I've had it for 3 weeks now, and have to admit I really like it.
