    Subaru XV News and Reviews
    I'm afraid I'm going to answer your question with questions. Has either car been in an accident? If you haven't already done so I would further screen both Crosstreks with a Vehicle History Report such as a CarFax. Also does either vehicle come with complete maintenance records? That would be a...
  2. Model Year 2018 and Newer Difference Between Crosstek and XV?

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    I don't know if you plan on buying new or used but there was a significant improvement to the Crosstrek beginning in 2018 in the form of a whole new platform. To further clarify the name of the vehicle, the US version was known as the "XV Crosstrek" in model years 2013-2015. The "XV" portion...

    Just in case you are not aware, you have to push the AS/S defeat button every time your start your car. The button is not a permanent defeat.
  4. Model Year 2018 and Newer Tire Pressure Warning (TPMS) Issues

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    It's happened to me too when driving from Tucson up into the Catalina Mountains at 9,000 feet and 30 degrees cooler than the desert. There is an easy work around. Just put a few extra pounds of air in your tires before heading up into the mountains.

    Actually I was in AstroKat's camp when we were shopping for a Crosstrek. However, the X'trek is my wife's car so she chose the color. I must admit though that it has grown on me and I think it looks good with all the black trim and orange stitching.
  6. Model Year 2018 and Newer Oil dilution problem?

    Engine and Drivetrain
    I don't think that is a very accurate way of determining if there is a problem. For example, oil consumption will countermeasure oil dilution on the dip stick. Instead get an oil analysis that shows the percentage of fuel in the oil.

    Another feature with the Limited is a power driver's seat which is manual in the Premium.

    Did you put any money down on the car you reserved? Do you have any other Subaru dealers within a reasonable distance?
  10. Model Year 2018 and Newer Sunroof exploded

    Appearance and Body
    This has been a problem mainly with Hyundai/Kia. Sunroofs made of laminated glass eliminates this potential problem. Subaru uses laminated glass in the Forester and Ascent sunroofs; however, Crosstrek sunroofs are tempered (not laminated) glass. You might find these Consumer Reports articles...
  11. Model Year 2018 and Newer Oil dilution problem?

    Engine and Drivetrain
    I'll be doing a Blackstone oil analysis on my second oil change.
  12. Applies to All Model Years Another recall forthcoming

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    I had trouble sorting that out in my mind too and concluded that the commonality is the 2.0L engine in both the Crosstrek and Forester. The previous generation Forester came with either a 2.5L or 2.0L turbo.
  13. Model Year 2012 to 2017 100,000 mile CVT transmission warranty.

    Engine and Drivetrain
    https://www.ncconsumer.org/news-articles/subaru-issues-extended-transmission-warranty-program-for-certain-vehicles.html Why is the warranty being extended? Subaru reports that no customer complaints or specific conditions are behind this warranty extension. Instead, Subaru reports that it wants...

    Better Toyota than, say, Nissan.

    According to post #628 on this Forester forum thread, Planet Subaru no longer sells warranties out of state (Massachusetts): https://www.subaruforester.org/threads/extended-warranty-price-paid-merged-thread.685785/page-32#post-7588195

  18. Tesla Cybertruck Order

    Off Topic Discussion
    But will Tesla ever deliver any pickups at the bait-and-switch price of $39k ? I doubt it. Has Elon delivered any of the model 3's at the long-promised $35k ?
  19. Tesla Cybertruck Order

    Off Topic Discussion
    I hope that tax payers don't have to subsidize this vehicle too. I have a real problem with someone, who can barely afford a used Ford Ranger, subsidizing another's purchase of an expensive Tesla.
  20. Model Year 2018 and Newer Leasing a 2020 Crosstrek — What About Maintenance?

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    Since the OP asked about maintenance cost, here's an example where it may be more expensive to lease than to buy. Yesterday I had the 30k mile service done on my 2018 Forester at my Subaru dealer. The maintenance schedule in my Warranty & Maintenance booklet recommends that the differential...
