  1. I bought the genuine Subaru ones when I ordered the car and they have worn pretty badly with quite bad heel marks. They still do a good job and are much better, in my opinion, to the fabric versions. Easily removed to wash and clean.
  2. I’ve had mixed experience of Auto Stop Start in the past. The XV seems to work really well and I like the feature that instead of just having to release the foot brake I can increase the foot brake pressure to restart the engine, great if your on an incline. I last reset mine about 9 months ago, it’s showing that I’ve saved 2 gallons and it’s been stopped 6 hours. Not a great saving I guess in the scheme of things but less pollution has been put into the environment. Ernie

    xv off road?

    you need to check this out I'm not so sure the XV ground clearance would be OK at this site?
  4. The good thing, whatever happens, is having a car that will cope and do it very well.
  5. Nice car, good choice if you need the space, enjoy.

    XV video

    Impressive, thanks.
  7. Oh! the joy of a new car. Enjoy.
  8. I'd love to have a a real spare tyre. The problem is the size just eats the already smallish boot......
  9. I bought my CrossClimate SUV from Costco, good value. They did damage a sensor valve but did not quibble, bought an OEM replacement which they payed for £104, fitted, all good. I’ve been through last winter but used the CrossClimate tyres on two previous Skoda Yeti, in very deep snow, ice and floods, very comfortable and secure.
  10. That looks good, it’s the way the car should have been delivered rather than the chrome.
  11. I’ve got Cross Climates SUV on my XV, brilliant in a word.
  12. It might just do if your body was shielding the key fob anyway it's a cheap enough fix to try.
  13. they look so much better than the standard chrome finish.
  14. Hi, Assume you'r not going to buy new as currently XV's are only sold with a petrol engine and a CVT automatic gearbox?
