loving my new crosstrek
By tquigsmay on


2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek Premium 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl CVT)


i really missed my saturn vue, but i wanted better gas mileage. i checked out kia sportage, hyunai tucson, honda crv, mazda cx-5, mitsubishi outlander, nissan rouge, ford escape, chevy equinox, and subaru forester. no 1 car had everything on my wish list.
i didn't see this car til the last minute when i went to buy the forester. the crosstrek got my attention with the cool wheels and sleek design.
this suv had everything on my list except auto headlights and navigational mirrow- direction in rear view mirror.
my dealer was pretty cool. they agreed to trade out the mirrors. the way around the no auto headlights is to leave them on-they go off when you turn the car off. i love it so far.

Best Features

i love the original steel wheel design, easy to drive, luggage rack, compact spoiler, blue tooth option, good sound system, nice pickut, sporty look, gass mileage, cup holders in the doors, are rest moves forward to get bigger., roomy interior, some of my scores are 4s because i don't know yet- just got crosstrek this week.

Worst Features

wish had option of gray interior w/ some colors i.e. silver, auto head lights would be a dream, both power outlets together in site, vanity mirror lights, bigger cargo space is would be nice, rear seats recline, other than red color dashboard lights, flexable cup holders, cup holder in center behind middle console for backseat passengers, when you push arm rest forward to get bigger, it blocks the 2nd cup holder.
