  1. Wheels and Tires
    I’ve been comparing all-terrain tire models available on Discount Tire and Tire Rack for the factory size 17” tires. My main concern is weight- my car is the 2 liter and I worry that heavier A/T tires will adversely affect acceleration and economy. The two options I’m looking at the most are the...
  2. Engine and Drivetrain
    I'm new here and this is my 1st post. I was googleing my issue and came across this forum. I have a 2021 Crosstrek Touring 6sp manual. I have only ever owned manuals from my first vehicle so I feel that I am pretty well versed with the feel when driving/changing gears/acceleration etc (30...
  3. Engine and Drivetrain
    Every 2021 Crosstrek review I ran into went along the lines of "Crosstrek was underpowered and Subaru finally fixed it with the 2.5L engine." I got anxious about this: our bugdet did not stretch to the 2.5L engine, so we got the 2.0L but I had misgivings in the back of my mind. I'm a regular...
  4. General Discussion Forum
    Hi, I recently bought a 2013 automatic subaru crosstrek, the car seemed in great condition no previous accidents etc. however a week in and I was already having trouble. my current issue which I can't seemed to find much on specifically is that after driving highway for around 30min when...
  5. Hybrid General Discussion
    I’m considering the crosstrek PHEV ... every review I read gives the car excellent reviews except they say the crosstrek is a noisy ride .... what do current owners say? Also, can you give comments on acceleration? Thx!
  6. General Discussion Forum
    Hello good people and fellow Crosstrek owners, I recently purchased a 2019 Crosstrek in Toronto, Canada. I am just about past the break in mileage and I have been extremely careful with how I drive the car during this time. I usually don't even go over 2k rpm from a dead stop, which is not that...
  7. Engine and Drivetrain
    I have a brand new XV with now 3k KM on the clock. This issues is from day one.... ONLY when slow accelerating, the engine seems to protest and isn't climbing smooth in revs. Kicking the accelerator to the floor (or just in between) makes the engine rev up perfectly OK and the XV accelerates...
  8. Engine and Drivetrain
    A while back, at about 10K miles, my car developed an acceleration shudder: from a stop under load, the car would shudder a bit but past 20mph, smooth as silk. To make a long story short, even after the replacement of two CV axles under warranty it was still there intermittently but much less...
  9. Dealer Service, Maintenance, and Warranty Issues
    Hey Folks, Some recent developments: I had to go to the same dealer where I bought my ride (Puente Hills Subaru, PHS) twice and they gave me that typical BS runaround about how it’s “normal.” How can it be normal when during acceleration a wobble shakes your butt like the car wants to dance...
  10. Dealer Service, Maintenance, and Warranty Issues
    PSA - my check engine light was on. Cruise control and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) lights were flashing. Also noticed sluggish acceleration (more than usual, haha), or also described as "hesitation". Took to dealership - they held the car and ran some tests. Dealership read the codes but...
