First car - XV 2.0i SE

Recommended Posts

Just bought my first car -- a Subaru XV 2.0i SE.  Got a good deal on a preregistered car so it was about the same price as a mid-spec Suzuki Vitara, and quite a bit cheaper than other cars on the shortlist like a T-Roc even taking dealer discounts & PCP contributions into account.  It's probably a way more capable a car than I need (weekend driving only probably, short trips away, occasional longer ones to explore the country a bit) but I wanted a super-safe car, fuel efficiency is not such a big issue as we'll probably only do 5-6k miles per year so meh why not 🙂.

First question to all -- I want to get a steering wheel lock as my XV has keyless entry, but I'm aware the steering wheel has quite a pronounced boss presumably containing the airbag, so many locks likely won't fit.   Can anyone point me to a decent lock model that definitely fits? 

Thanks in advance

Late reply but the disklock standard fits just about every passenger vehicle...I've got one for my new xv which I collect next week,so I'll provide a definitive answer then (if you still use the forum's!)

Thanks yes I'm still lurking.

I ended up getting a Stoplock Pro Elite, which fits fine.  The steering wheel boss isn't actually as pronounced as I thought it was from the showroom visit, so it's actually probably overkill; the Pro model would have probably worked just as well.
