Still under 1000 miles but enjoying the car,city gas mileage isn't very good but I think it's because I only drive 7 minutes to work and the car isn't heated up yet. I'm in Wisconsin it's a little cold here, on the highway it's 30+ and in a bigger city where I drove a longer distance it also got ton over 30,so far I'm pretty happy I don't have any complaints.

not very hybridy really

This doesn't seem to save all that much gas over a 2009 Forester I traded. Subaru took the Crosstrek & decided to make a hybrid model as opposed to say Toyota designed the Prius as a hybrid vehicle only. The battery pack replaces the spare tire, so there isn't one. The car is comfortable enough though. The electronics are OK but not very intuitive. The bluetooth setting is often lost so I often have to re-set it, but it's quite good once it's working. I'm a bit disappointed as I had greater expectations - it's certainly not a bad car though.

Just bought my certified used 2014 hybrid Crosstrek. Comparing it to the regular all gas crosstrek which I also leased in the passed, NO COMPARISON. My hybrid has a tight steering ratio which I have not had on a car in ages ( important to me ). Amenities are great ( fully loaded ). Brakes are bearly touched and it stops Other than the plasma green color which would not have been my first choice, this car is my new found love. only time will tell, as I have only had her since last week

Cross Trek Hybrid after thought

by from Ft Lauderdale Fl on August 25, 2016

A nice enough car with the AWD, Hybrid system, and good cargo to size ratio. Less than 2 years old and I have had to replace the front drive axel and alternator and belt. I have averaged about 42,000 ...
A nice enough car with the AWD, Hybrid system, and good cargo to size ratio. Less than 2 years old and I have had to replace the front drive axel and alternator and belt. I have averaged about 42,000 a year but I thought Subaru made a tougher car. The Hybrid system is of no help if you do a lot of highway miles like me and the car is noisy at highway speeds. A small SUV that they converted to Hybrid to help with CAFE standards.
