A little more than two weeks ago we took a trip of 1650 miles in our new XV. We drove across northern Ohio, through Indiana nearly across Illinois and back home to north east Ohio. I saw a total of two Crosstreks! I saw one in Ohio and another in Indiana. It's possible that there were others out on the interstates that I missed, but I really expected to see more of them out there. I guess XV's are still fairly rare in the Midwest. The car performed well the entire trip!
