  1. Fuel Economy / Alternate Fuels
    Just wanted to do a general post if anyone else runs into this issue. We bought our 2015 XV used in January, it was a one owner with 52k miles, well maintained. It is advertised as 26/34 mpg, which was one of the reasons we wanted it, a small good mpg AWD "SUV" for commuting that could still fit...
  2. Fuel Economy / Alternate Fuels
    Hi. I noticed earlier my mpg display numbers are all out whack for some reason. I have a 2020 Impreza premium. I have a little over 3k miles on it and filled up and reset the trip counter and drove about 60miles and started noticing the numbers for mpg are just jumping all around like crazy...
  3. Wheels and Tires
    Hello everyone! wanted to give anyone out there that has some thoughts regarding running the Ready Lift 2 inch lift kit with the BF Goodrich KO2 215/75/15 on a 2019 Subaru Crosstrek . Before installing the lift, I ran these tires for about 600 miles. The tires are great on this car. with the...
  4. Engine and Drivetrain
    Hey everyone So i recently purchased a 2019 Crosstrek 6MT. This is the first new car i've ever owned, so naturally i've been overly attentive to the break-in period and the process. I read a bunch of threads regarding this process, but my question is directed towards the ECU or computer and...
  5. Wheels and Tires
    About to get some new tires for my 2014 XV. Looking for good wet/dry traction, lower noise level, and higher mpg (or at least maintained). Snow is VERY rarely a concern, and I seldom go off road (usually dirt/gravel roads if any). Going through some other threads, I started getting a headache...
  6. General Discussion Forum
    Hello, all, I do mostly city (Los Angeles) driving with occasional weekend trips. I've been a Toyota guy for a long time. But it's time for a new car and I'm kind of anguishing over the choices out there and the many factors affecting my decision. I've narrowed it down to a Crosstrek or...
  7. Appearance and Body
    Anybody have any experience with a wind fairing on factory bars. Every post seems to be with yakima crossbars. How much will it effect MPG. The noise of just the bars is not bad I mainly just want it for looks so I am trying to weigh out the pros and cons. Ideally I want to put a basket on it...
  8. Fuel Economy / Alternate Fuels
    Hey guys, so I'm not too new to the forms, I just don't post a lot, I really just look around. So, I'm a little worried that I'm not getting the recommended MPG on my 2014 Crosstrek. I've had this car for just over a year and the mpg has been... meh. It's getting around the same mpg as my...

  9. General Discussion Forum
    So where I live we sit at 6300 ft above sea level, with parts of the city much higher. So my question is A) What octane do you use. Our regular unleaded is 85, I have still been running 87 because of the manual. B) how is your average gas milage. I am averaging a little less than 25 MPG...
  10. Hybrid General Discussion
    Regarding regenerative braking, does anyone know if the brake pads immediately kick in when you depress the brake pedal or do they only kick in when the required braking power exceeds the braking capacity of the regenerative braking system? The reason I ask is it affects how I should drive to...
  11. Dealer Service, Maintenance, and Warranty Issues
    I purchased my XV in August of 2013 and I really have loved it ever since. It is such a great car and handles unbelieveably in the snow. I do, however, have a couple problems. First, I have thus far gotten terrible mileage (22.8 mpg). I do not drive the car much as I have a work truck, so it...
  12. Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    I was wondering if anyone else seems to have this quirk/problem/issue...whatever it is. In my center information display (U.S. Model) the temperature and the mpg read outs will suddenly start blinking when the car is in motion just going down the road. I know that occasionally the read outs...
  13. Fuel Economy / Alternate Fuels
    I got my CVT XV in early Feb. It now has just over 5,000 mi. on it. I drive a lot of highway miles and am conservative with the gas petal. Typically, I get a little more than EPA ratings out of the cars I drive. One selling point was the advertised 33mpg on the highway. I average 72 on the...
  14. New Member Introductions
    Hi, I've been driving my XV for more than two months now. I love it. Took the orange one, 5MT. I had a 2004 Impreza in the past, and after two years of complete lack of pleasure (I replaced my impreza with a Kia Rondo, what a mistake!), I feel home again :-) I can't wait for the first snow...
