Just purchased a Crosstrek in NC. It's a premium with PP1, wheel-locks, and trailer hitch
(not installed yet) in the ice silver color. This is my first Subaru and I couldn't be happier so far. For those interested I paid $400 above invoice before TTL, I don't remember off the top of my head how much below MSRP that is but I can figure it if that is helpful in case you are thinking about purchasing one. I'm attaching a few pictures for your enjoyment. one question, are we Crosstrekers or Crosstrekies? ;D

Welcome to the site, glad you joined! Thelosis and myself are both from NC as well, though I have been living in California for a few years now.

The Crosstrek looks great. I had intentions of waiting for a silver one but my dealership only had black and it was going to be weeks before they could get a silver one in. With my situation at the time (a car that was basically falling apart) I decided to go with the black and I really like it -- the taupe interior has been growing on me.

I couldn't be happier with the Crosstrek, definitely an upgrade from my previous vehicle. Do you plan on trying it out on any trails and such?

I definitely plan to get some good use out of it on trails and such. I'm at Bragg so I plan on trying it out on some of the trails I know here before I start exploring with it so I can get a feel for its exact capabilities. I really look forward to taking to the beach as well as I primarily got the hitch to tow a small sailboat like a sunfish or a laser.

I'd recommend the Uwharries, if you're going to take that trailing. I'm not sure how suitable for the ORV trails it is, but I'm sure they've got a few you could take it on.

I'm in NC in the "looking" process. My 13 year old Cherokee is beginning to show signs of needing replacement though a new car payment isn't my idea of fun. First, a "car" isn't going to work for me. My husband is disabled so I need something with height and I live on a steep hill so I need something with more ability than just getting me from straight point A to point B. That said I don't want to drive a tank and am looking for upgrade on fuel mileage over a std SUV. The first vehicle I found that met my reqs was the Crosstrek. Serfing the net looking at other options I keep coming back to this very interesting Subie. I've contacted a couple of dealerships and found one willing to work with me. About a month away from purchase so I'm still shopping around. Found the dealerships offputting az I've been quoted straight MSRP plus those lovely fees. Hope to become a Crosstrek owner but I guess the bottom line will be finding a good dealership.

Hey, welcome ap! In all honesty, it really sounds like the Crosstrek is a great fit for you with its higher ride height but without the bulk and bad MPGs of a full sized SUV or even some competing crossovers.

If you have any more questions about the Crosstrek please be feel free to post your questions, though I do recommend starting a new thread in order to draw the most attention to your posts.

Again, welcome and happy shopping. I hope it works out for you!

I'm from NC as well...wanted to let you know, if you are a member of the IMBA (International Mountain Bicycling Association) for six months or more, you qualify for a VIP discount on Subarus. I just purchased mine, and the VIP from IMBA qualifies you for TWO PERCENT BELOW DEALER INVOICE. Yes, you heard correctly!

The IMBA wants your money, before you can be a member. At least $30 or somewhere around that http://www.imba.com/membership

Well, I was a member for a year, but I didn't really use any of the benefits because at the time I couldn't even afford the fuel to get to fun trails.

I simply put good faith in that they used my money wisely for the sake of mountain bikers... or so I hope.

For $30 it seems like being able to save 2% is well worth it, but maybe I am missing some details.

You have to be a member for six months before you can get the Subaru discount. You communicate with them and the dealer, and get a form. It saved us about $2000 off the sticker.....for $30 membership (been members for years, but all those dues were well worth it...and well less than $2000).
