  1. Model Year 2018 and Newer Outback vs Crosstrek

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    Yes. It’s been a little while but the crosstrek averages in the 24s while the Outback is in the 25s. I have gotten the Crosstrek up to 34 - 36 before but that was a very concentrated effort. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Model Year 2018 and Newer Outback vs Crosstrek

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    I have a ‘14 crosstrek and an ‘18 outback. They are almost identical in terms of mpg - within about 1mpg. This could be due to driving styles but there is not as much a difference as I would have originally thought. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Model Year 2012 to 2017 '13 difficult starting

    Engine and Drivetrain
    My ‘14 had this happen once on a new battery. The car would crank but never actually start. This happened after numerous tries after the engine was sitting for just a few hours. About 30 minutes later, everything was fine. I took it into the dealer and they updated some software. I can’t...
  4. Model Year 2018 and Newer CVT modes? Are no 'fake gear shifts' possible?

    Engine and Drivetrain
    I go back and forth about the shifts. Speaking with a mechanic at my dealer, he said they were added because many people complained. My ‘14 XV has no shifts and I did get used to it. My ‘18 Outback has the shifts and while I’m not a huge fan, I am not super fond. The shifting feels strange and...

    Welcome to the forum and you chose a nice car. What made you decide to ditch the wrx and pick the crosstrek? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Norm at Heritage Subaru is awesome! Not sure if he is still there but when I purchased in July ‘14 he was great. If I didn’t move, my second Subaru would have been purchased through him. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It would be best to reach to an ambassador directly outside of posting. Subaru has expressed to not talk about these on social media. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Model Year 2018 and Newer SRH Button

    Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    The headlights need to be on and you have to go a certain speed before they start to turn. The inner light (the one closest to the direction of the turn) will turn more based on steering wheel input. It is easiest to see them when it is dark and the lights are shining on an object like a fence...

    This is essentially a Subaru IOU for the dealer. Negotiate your best deal and then mention the certificate. They will be reimbursed by Subaru. My dealer had no issue and asked if I had one. Seems a bit sketch that the dealer is acting like it is some hassle. Sorry that you have to go through...
  12. Model Year 2018 and Newer Steering Responsive Foglights

    Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    Not familiar with the SRF but SRH are great. I have them on my Outback and they work much better than I thought they would. Fog lights I would think should help for close range only. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. 2019 subaru ascent first test: Three-row winner

    Other Subaru Talk
    I will say I like the ascent a lot and was looking into buying one. However with demand and considering its options, it can get quite pricey. It does drive well and I could get used to the extra power. :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    This is exactly why I hose off the car right before I use the squeegee. Great results of car is wet. Not a pretty sound when you try swiping a dry spot. ;) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Appearance and Body
    I have used a squeegee for years. After I’m done washing the last panel, I hose down the entire car. Then using the squeegee, I get most of the water off. Admirer that usually a small microfiber towel after removes all the remaining water droplets. I have also not seen any harm done via the...

    Welcome! I’m sure you will love your new Crosstrek. I rented a Prius c once and it had me missing my Crosstrek for power. Definitely was a bit underwhelming. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Model Year 2018 and Newer The Forester eats our dust! (for now)

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    It is quite impressive. I definitely see more on the streets and in my neighborhood. There is an awesome new orange one that makes me want to upgrade. I agree that the new forester will probably take over again with some of the cool new features and redesign. #stilllovemycrosstrek Sent from my...
