Great car. Wrong year to purchase one.

2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek Limited

I love the style of the car. The 2013 model year was the first for the Crosstrek and I should have known to give it a year. The car IS quite comfortable although a bit shy on cargo capacity. The 2 biggest complaints I have about this 2013 Crosstrek would be the annoying level of road noise. So much so that listening to music is virtually impossible. Secondly, the car is way underpowered. And, while his does help yield very good fuel efficiency, it makes it a bear to come up to speed on the freeway or to climb any kind of hill. It really struggles with power. But having said those two serious complaints, the car has given us 6 years of trouble-free driving with (other than a couple recalls) zero maintenance problems or concerns. I have never owned a car this long. We will probably trade it soon for a newer version of the Crosstrek as I understand that the road noise and power issues have been addressed to some degree. We live in Idaho, so all wheel drive is desirable and the Crosstrek does an excellent job in snow, ice and wet pavement. All and all, an excellent car. I just bought too early and should have waited a year or two.

Summary of 2013 Subaru vehicle.

2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek

I have a 2013 Subaru xv Crosstrek. It is an cvt engine which means it is both automatic and manual. It is all wheel drive and is great in the snow. It can tow 1500 lbs. if you have a hitch. I have a sunroof, and basic radio, which I love. I do not need anything fancy. But what I love, is that it has a hookup for your iPod/smartphone so you can play music from your device and have it play on your radio. Which I love. I use it often when I go on road trips and I am not familiar with the radio stations. It seats 5, 2 in front and 3 in the back seat. The seats have warmers, and a/c and heat work great. You can change the oil yourself and it is a v4 engine. It has great gas mileage, one time I got up to 45 miles per gallon on the interstate while I was on the road for several hours. But most of the time when I am driving on the highway I get an average between 30-35 mpg depending on what type of gasoline I put in it and my tire pressure, etc.. Which all relates to the mpg. In the city, it gets an average of 20-25 mpg which isn't bad either. I love my Subaru and I recommend it to anyone interested in a very reliable vehicle!

Dependable, affordable and awesome!

2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek

I absolutely love my Subaru Crosstrek. I have had no issues with the car in the two years I have had it. I love the 18 inch clearance as it allows me to take my car off-road to remote camping places and campsites with no problems. It looks great in the outdoors and performs perfectly. I have taken it into the snow which has also been a great experience. I find that the tires handle well on all terrain I have experienced. Maintenance is simple because issues rarely arise with my Subaru. The oil is extremely easy to change, even for a rookie. The backseat is spacious and comfortable. The trunk is plenty large for camping equipment, sports equipment or any other bulky items. The interior is simple, but the Crosstrek offers nice features such as sunroof, backup camera, and roof racks. I have a roof top box on my car and it has not negatively impacted my gas mileage at all. I find that I consistently get 33 mpg on the highway with slightly less if I am driving surface streets. The colors offered by Subaru are also great and allow a person to show more of their personality through their vehicle.
