I have 100 miles on my Crosstrek Premium. I absolutely love the car. If I had to choose I would take it over my Forester. Gas mileage was a true 33mpg in suburban driving with 4 trips. It has the same road clearance as my Forester (8.7"). It handles probably better than my Forester XT. I did put the heavy duty stabilizer on the XT so they may be equal now. It sits very very high. Rear visibility is not as good as the Forester, but better than most cars. I removed the rear seat head rests so it is now great. The only safety features I got was the blind spot detection which actually senses speed and distance to your left and right well before it is in your blind spot. and the rear view camers has a feature where it senses if a car is going perpendicular to my vehicle. The backup camera has 2 orange lines that will actally curve depending on the amount of steering used. The infotainment system is good. It has Car Play. I got the premium bc it had a sun roof. People that say its slow need to get a life. Its not slow by any means. Sure..it can't compete with my XT but neither can the overwhelming percentage of cars on the road. The XT is quicker than any other non luxury SUV on the road. and its as quicker than the BMW X3. It has the sport mode with paddle chifters. Iit gets up to 50 mph faster than most vehicles on the road I would say. I haven merged with traffic. But its the quickest of any vehicles I have had in the last 57 yers other than my '69 camaro. I don't know where folks are coming from saying its slow. Test drive one your self. The car had 7 miles on it when I got it. So the only miles it has is from the factory and the idiots that beat the crap out of it loading/uloading from boats/trucks. Buty that is actually a good thing for a brand new car. Its steady low rpms that is the problem. Well, that's it. So faults I can not point out any problems except car play/iphone are not perfect. But that's the nature of car play. Granted, I love Subarus (as most know). But I would be first on here so say what I don't like about it. Its going to be hard getting a great deal especially in the car Color/options) you want. They are outselling every vehicle in the U.S. relative to how many can be manufactured. Subaru is producing all they can. My price was 200 over invoice. If I were not selective on exactly with respect to the exact one I wanted, I might have left 1000 on the table. But so be it. I will certainly point out any future problems. BTW..the XT has 12,000 miles on it and not a hint of a problem.
