2016 Crosstrek Hybrid

Recommended Posts

I am about to p/u a new 2016 Hybrid Crosstrek. I am thinking of cancelling it as I just learned Subaru is not taking orders. I am concerned about future problems, resale, etc. Also thinking the car is not as good as I thought from earlier reading. What would you do? Buy a gas, wait, look elsewhere or go through with the purchase? Thanks.

In my opinion the hybrid is a bunch of added cost and complexity for very little gain in gas mileage.  If it got Prius level gas mileage I could consider one... but I would take a normal gas powered one personally.  Much more likely to make it to 200,000 or even 300,000 without needing major work (like a new battery pack)  Also in Oregon at least, the dealers seem to be having trouble selling the hybrids.  The gas ones are selling faster than they can get them in stock.

And you don't even get a spare tire. I hated the hybrid loaner I had for a weekend. Am glad I picked the not hybrid.
