And I don't even think this is the one I'm thinking of. Which ever it was, I believe it was even a front page article.

I conceded the use of magazine articles. Still awaiting an answer to the original question I asked him. That started this.

I haven't driven the latest gen or the hybrid, but I really liked the loaner that I had a few years ago. Being a WRX owner, I would love to see a turbo model of course. Certainly it doesn't need to have gobs of power, but a little pep would be nice.

The PT Cruiser was immensely popular out of the gate. So much so Chevy copied it verbatim. For what the PT Cruiser represented and the time in which it was introduced, it was worthy of car of the year. The PT Cruiser ushered in a slew of vehicles cashing in on the affordable, American retro nostalgia it tapped into.

You said “yeah the Crosstrek is pretty hated and Justy asked, “says who?”

So that’s the question. Quit trolling and answer it.

in general, podcasts I listen to, people in the automotive community, idk what sources have told me that in the very long life of the Crosstrek, but it has been said

I cannot exactly quote to you in the MotorTrend Issue #258 Jim Bob said X, on the Smoking Tire podcast on 3/25/17 they said Y

Next time make mention you are referring to magazine people. They pretty much hate all Subaru's that don't have a turbo. I thought you were talking in general and I was wanting examples. The customers who the Crosstrek is actually for, love their car. And as a disclaimer, of course, I am not talking about EVERY SINGLE Crosstrek owner. But, those that don't like it definitely aren't as much as your statement had alluded to.

Just makes me wonder why it wins virtually every comparison it's been in if they hate it so much.
