2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek Premium 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
I owned an FJ Cruiser and went to the Crosstrek because of it's advertised fuel mileage. In the beginning it was getting 28-30 mpg, now it is 2 months old with 3,000 miles and it just barely gets 20 mpg. I should have kept my FJ, it may have only gotten 16 mpg but at least it was built like a tank.
I have the same issue with dropping mileage. I have almost 4,000 miles on my Crosstrek and it gets only 26 highway and struggles to get 18 city. I got rid of my Jeep Liberty for this car based on fuel mileage. I was getting about 23 highway and 17 city with the jeep. now I'm stuck spending about the same on gas on top of higher insurance and a car payment.
