Great Car for the Money
By meandrew228 on
2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek Premium 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
this is my third Subaru, I have been driving mostly German cars over the years but my last 3 cars which I usually keep no more than 18 months haveall been subies. love the german cars but quality over the years has gone down hill. not sure what it is but I love the control of the All wheel Drive it just sucks the road. I drove a 2011 outback for a little while with the cvt and was under powered. I choose the 5 speed crosstrek
because of the lack of power on the cvt . I think if you stick with the 5 speed it really brings out the true car. it would be even better is there was a turbo version. the build quality is better than the outback probably because its made in japan.
love the orange color, nothing really out there even compares to the subie, heated seats rock iam 5.9 and the seats are just perfect. not sure about for taller people.
a few of the plastics are a little cheaper looking but the car is made in japan and I think that is such a great thing.
