Anyone drive a Subaru Crosstrek?
Anyone drive one of these? In my 15 years of driving I've never owned anything other than different Hondas, but I'm thinking about making the switch to Subaru. I don't know if I like the Impreza, Crosstrek, Outback, or Forester best, but I'm leaning towards the Crosstrek, as it seems to be a good balance of size/price/features. Thoughts from anyone who drives a Subaru? (No, I'm not a hippie or lesbian).

We are seriously considering the Outback. Had a friend own an Impreza WRX for 8 or 9 years with no problems. Subaru only has two chassis for all of their vehicles. They've been using the same Boxer engine for many years too. They keep it simple. Only Subaru I wouldn't mess with is the BRZ. Other than that, all other vehicles are flagship vehicles.

re: Anyone drive a Subaru Crosstrek?
We had an Outback, but someone hit and totaled it 2 months ago. We will buy another in the future. Loved it. Only thing I think we would change is we'd like to have the V6 instead of the 4 cylinder.

Did fantastic in the accident too, my wife's only injury was from her foot being thrown off the brake pedal and banging against the gas pedal.

Edit: Older ones, as in early 2000s and before all had head gasket issues. But that has been ironed out in newer ones. They hold their value like crazy too. Our's had been in a previous accident when we bought it, and insurance still gave us more than we paid for it. This was after we put 19,000 miles on it.

I have a '14 Crosstrek and love it. I've never been loyal to just one brand but I would definitely buy another Subaru down the line.

What didn't you like about the 4 cylinder?

re: Anyone drive a Subaru Crosstrek?
I rented an Outback for two weeks during a recent trip. It's a good vehicle that I will consider on my next purchase. It has more gadgetry than I'm used to, but then I didn't have a lot of time to better familiarize myself with it. 4½ out of 5 stars.

My brother rented a Crosstrek; from the way he drove it, I'd say he was very comfortable with it.

If you are going to mostly drive it in the southern US, the 4 cylinder should be fine. If you are going to be in more mountainous regions, I would recommend the bigger engine.

We are looking a one right now with the 4 cylinder, I think that would be fine for my wife to drive around flat arse Louisiana

Subarus are solid cars. Don't listen to the losers here who tout them as "lesbian cars." There's a reason why most cars you see on the road in the mountains are Subaru.

The 4 was fine, it was peppy enough and it did get better gas mileage. But our new vehicle has a V6, and we really like having the extra power. Outback's frames can tow a fair amount as well, but you really need the V6.

do the Lez-barus still come with 2 rescue pitbulls so you and your "wife" can feel like you've had children?

Wife has a Forester. Plenty of room and over 24 mpg combined. The full time four wheel drive makes up for the lack of a 6 cylinder when power is needed
