    I bought Crosstrek Limited 2018 in April 2021, currently has 40K miles on it. Had intermediate humming noise after I bought it when driving above 70 MPH.

    Hey guys, So I recently purchased my 19 XV CROSSTREK with 21k on the odometer in February. Since then I’ve put another 7k on. New tires, oil, and wipers have been the only items replaced.

    Edit: I found it. I am looking to change the front diff / gear oil and realized that I can't locate a dipstick, despite the service manual and parts diagram saying there is one.

    The Story: So... my 2014 Crosstrek has about 40k miles on it and I wanted to run some Motor Medic through the engine before changing the oil.

    I have a 2013 Crosstrek with about 90,000mi on it. I bought the car in for the 90,000mi service. The repair shop gave the car a once over and said there was some 'Zinging' coming from the transmission and it could go any time. He said the soluiton would be to think about getting a new...

    I have a 2014 Crosstrek and have been having an intermittent problem with my manual transmission (for the past few months). Sometimes it won't allow me to downshift (usually from 5th) into any other gear without me having to double-clutch. I haven't found any correlation to driving style or...
