Finally saw the Cross Trek in the flesh for the first time yesterday.....not many Sub dealers in our neck of the woods. It was nice looking but the dealer got one in white (boring) and it was the premium level (cheaper line) loaded up with crap stuff (my opinion) that jacked the price to nearly $26K. At that price it didn't even have the leather gut or moon roof. It did have the CVT (stndard on Limited) and the nav system. Those two options add $2700. Overall I wasn't as impressed as I wanted to be. The '14 Forester is looking better all the time. My only concern is that manufacturer specs are showing that towing capacity has gone from 2400#s to 1500#s....I'm thinking it's a website glitch they haven't caught as the Forester data has gone to the 2014 specs in the past week. The 2.0 shows a 1500# capacity as does the 2.5 which doesn't make sense. If I didn't want some of the newer updates to the Forester, I'd be jumping on a '13 with their 0% financing 'til the end of Feb.
