2017 Crosstrek
Hyper blue

Default Posting in here. Hope it's ok.

Not sure why nobody has ever posted in here. It's says "no posts in the last 7 days", but there are no posts prior to that either... anyways....

I bought my first subie. This 2017 hyper blue crosstrek. CVT (haters, go ahead). I must say I like these cars. I've driven my local mountain pass several times now and this thing does great. People whine about the lack of power, but I think is adequate given the size of the car. I also came from a first gen and second gen Honda Fit... so the torque in this crosstrek feels great! Looking forward to snow play, but really need to try the wheel speed sensor trick to see if I can get that awful VDC off.

2017 Impreza 5 Door
Crystal White Pearl


I'm just 800 miles into my new 2017 Impreza 5 Door Premium and the engine has already impressed me. It's still new and tight but goes better than the numbers suggest. The CVT is good too and it's faster than my old 2000 OBS commuter and gets a lot better gas mileage. This is my 6th Subaru, 4 Imprezas and, 2 Foresters and I believe it's going to be the best one yet. My only complaint is the high cold start engine speed and roughness that lasts for 30 seconds or so. After it settles down to the normal idle speed it's smooth as any I've had.

I saw some information saying this was an FA engine but FB is cast right on top of the engine cases.

Is bigger than yours.


The last post in here was march 19th. There are a bunch of topics, your settings just don't show them to you.

The cold start roughness is just altered timing/injection duration designed to heat up the catalyst fast in order to reduce emissions.

Subaru considers it an FB, but somewhere around 80% of the engine was redesigned versus the prior generation FB.
