My 2014 Hybrid Touring

Recommended Posts

Put myself in debt for another 5 years! I drove my new Hybrid Touring home yesterday. I love it! I had a 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid and got rid of it after having a accident with it 6 years ago. And was thinking for a long time on getting another Hybrid. After doing a lot of reading I convinced myself to look at a non-Ford vehicle, I haven't owned anything other in 25 years. After test driving a few different Subaru models I was amazed at the build quality of this company. So, after taking my new car home, a 30 mile drive with the NAV unit telling me where to go in Spanish, a issue I resolved when I got home. I quickly fell in love with my new ride. I added a couple of options that they were able to install right away. I bought a auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass. And cross bars for the roof rack.

I read somewhere that you'll have to drive 350,000 miles to save enough money on gas to justify the extra cost of buying a hybrid.  doh.

I was driving an Infiniti G35 and the best mileage is 19 mpg for my daily commute to work on 80% freeway and 20% local road. I am very happy with the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid to get 35 mpg and on good days, I can even get 40 mpg. I could get lower price for Toyota Prius hybrid but don't like the design and I am happy with my Subaru Hybrid which I paid for $23,959 (+ tax) at 0% interest rate. I  wanted leather seats but I don't like the Nav so I opted for non-touring and was happy with the roof rack, all-weather floor mat, rear seat protector and the leather steering wheel and gear knob. Overall it was a good deal but I wish the dealer would throw in stuff like cargo net which I to pay separately. (hint: cheaper to buy cargo net online)

Indeed, cheaper elsewhere.  They sell those divider boxes for the cargo area for 60 bucks at the dealership.  10.99 at Harbor freight for the same exact one, but it doesn't say Subaru on it.  lol

i love subaru's quality, they dont care about luxury, just build quality to the engine, me personally i hate plastic and new vehicles (1995ish and up) also thats another reason why im still sticking with the older cars is payments for 5-7years, i couldn't do it, but my favorite part about the crosstrek is the rims, i sure do like them alot.

Well, after almost two years and 37,000 miles  I'm still very happy with my Crosstrek.  Zero problems to date. I will say that the new tires I just got did quiet the ride down a bit. I'm going to find out this morning how it handles in the snow with them. We have about 5 inches of snow on the road.
