Oil Issues!!!By Che robinson, Feb 17, 2015Motor is a new one ,first change in 20 years!!! Oil consumption of 1 quart per thousand is called NORMAL in the owners warranty booklet.So in other words between oil changes every 10 k its alright 2 add 10 quarts!!! Rev really high during warm up 2000 rpm and take long time to warm...Unreal that theyd let a motor with a internal seal problem off the line.Oil goes into Cats causes failure to emissions and cats...Subee is already dropping the motor 4 2016...Read up on the class action oil suits regarding Subaru crosstreks and B informed!!! ...morenice ride confident handiling,nice seats,lots of storage .
The oil consumption 30 quarts per year is Normal!!!Loud ticking engine...Trim 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek 2.0i Premium Automatic

2.5L and/or a 6sp please.By Rod, Feb 17, 2015I really like the Crosstrek but would like more hp and gears. I'm manual transmission guy, over half the 20+ cars I've purchased for myself or my kids have been manuals, but Subaru's 2.5L and the 6sp manual would have been so much better. The Crosstrek is basically a lifted Impreza with larger wheels, larger brakes and lower final drive ratio to compensate for the larger wheels. If they had stopped with lowering the final drive ratio it would have been better, but they chose spec the Crosstrek with a 1500lb towing capacity. The Impreza has zero towing capacity, so on the Crosstrek they lowered 1st and 5th gears, to enable starting with a trailer and maintain towing speed at cruise. I don't tow and never plan to so lowering 1st and 5th is a detriment. When starting off, you're barely rolling and reaching for 2nd gear and a 65mph in 5th, you're engine is at 2,800rpm. I'm also not a fan of Subaru's throttle-by-wire gas pedal. I've driven a 2015 WRX manual several times and it has it too, the throttle inputs seem a little laggy. This review I'm sure reads pretty negative, but I really like my Crosstrek, I just don't agree with some of the concessions Subaru made in spec'ing this otherwise excellent little car. ...moreSubaru simplicity

Love my SubaruBy John, Feb 17, 2015The biggest smile on my face when I finally got to drive my 2014 XV Crosstrek home. After two weeks of ownership, I can finally say that it was a good, solid buy. I'm averaging 32-33 MPG and while it doesn't have exceptional power, it's good enough for me. What I love about it is that it drives like a compact car, but has plenty of clearance which I love. It isn't very spacious though. The engine can get a bit noisy, but the transmission is smooth and relatively quiet. Honestly it lacks punch on the highway, but accelerating in the city is more than fine. It's just a versatile car that's fun to drive and I love that it's unique. ...moreUnique, great fuel efficiency, lotsa clearance
