History
Bought the Car in March 2014, was originally wanting a manual but it would take 3 months have it built and shipped, so I went with the hybrid since my old explorer's transmission was on its last leg. Bought the hybrid for the extra power that I felt from driving the regular CVT and the fuel economy I average about 32 or better if I don't put my foot into in and 28 if I do. I have moved and lived in 3 states since I bought this car and have driven through the Rockies several times and it has performed great. the CVT does struggle a little bit on the steeper grades of the mountains but the paddle shifters help. as of now I have had the car 8 months and have put over 16,000 miles on it and it runs great. I have recently added the crossbars and the remote stare with my last oil change.
the remote start is different since it uses the push start smart key as opposed to its own fob but its nice only having a small key chain to keep track of.

My plan for this car is to be unlike most Hybrids. I am putting rally rims and tires on it next month and will be adding skid plates and a light bar some time next year.
even though it is a hybrid it is still a Subaru and is meant for the wild outdoors.

My motto for her is : "NOT ALL HYBRIDS ARE CREATED EQUAL"
2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek (Silver)

Modifications

Interior
Plane stock with the Touring package only change is the WeatherTech floor mats probably wont change to much inside.
Exterior
I haven't done much to the exterior since i bought it only added the areo crossbars and a hitch. the hitch i have is a torque lift eco hitch and i would recommend it to anyone with a Crosstreck. it is completely hidden and uses the knock out in the bumper to insert the hitch. it is a bit of a pain to reach for the pin but ascetically worth it. and its a class III
Wheel and Tire
I have ordered the Team Dynamics Pro Rally rims however they have to be shipped and wont be here till December, Once they arrive I will also be getting more aggressive tires just don't know what yet. Also with that i am putting some Rally Armor mud flaps on the car.
