  1. After 3+ years of no problems, with phone or Bluetooth, I now have one! Car picks up phone being present, shows transfer of contact list, etc, but all the screens show empty lists - no contact list, no history, nothing. Deleted and paired phone again, but no change. iPhone 6Splus, running latest OS and all updates. Ok, Monday and Tuesday, but not today. Any ideas?

    Driver’s seat damage

    Yes, the three year warranty part did cross my mind. Not been able to get to a dealer, yet, due to hospital visits being a priority. If no go under warranty, I will go back to the original dealer (not Subaru anymore), and chuck the sale of goods legislation at them, as not fit for purpose. Failing that, a couple of inches of duct tape will sort it!😂

    Driver’s seat damage

    Car is just over three years old, so two years left. I wondered about body weight but, as these are sold all over, and our American cousins look pretty large, on the US XV forum, I don’t think they can use that as an excuse. Only done 18k miles, so don’t consider it over used. Will be off to a dealer in the morning.

    Driver’s seat damage

    Anyone had this damage go their driver’s seat? Will take it in to a dealer on Monday, and hope covered by warranty.
  5. Have been approached by a mate, who has a mate with a 1996 P plate Legacy LX estate, who needs a replacement petrol tank. Any ideas I can pass on? Thanks.

    Fuel saver info screen

    Cheers for that. So many different knobs and switches, doing all sorts of odd things! Will get my neighbour’s ten year old to sort it 😂

    What did you do to your XV today???

    Had my third service yesterday, last of the free ones! Looks like I will have to start saving for the next one😂

    Fuel saver info screen

    On my late 15 reg, with stop and go, the time stopped and fuel saved screen only showed whilst stop and go operating. Since yesterday’s service, it shows all the time, except when other messages come on (door open, low fuel, etc). Anyone else had this happen, after recent service? Not annoying, but got used to the empty box under the fuel gauge 😂

    Windscreen replacement - alarm issues

    Screen finally fitted, and bought new wiper blades, so back for MOT retest tomorrow. Everything seems to work OK, but need some rain to test the auto wipers 😓

    Windscreen replacement - alarm issues

    Meant to have mine replaced today, but they spotted wrong mirror fixing, so hope right screen comes next week. Hope yours is sorted by then.
  11. Spotted crack in windscreen so contacted insurance and appointment made for screen company to come today. Got new screen out of van, thankfully before taking old one out, and spotted that interior mirror fixing different, so wrong screen. New appointment made for Thursday, but mot booked for Tuesday!!! Fortunately mot not due till 20th, so will cancel and rearrange. Why do these things all happen at once??

    Crack in windscreen

    Spotted 2 inch crack in XV windscreen, this morning. Went out and, on return, saw it was now 4 inch crack! Sounds like a new screen, with all the problems that brings. Wonder if Autoglass will manage to get, and fit, the right spec screen?

    Battery Discharge - Help

    I was surprised to find modern cars get hardly any battery charge from alternator, as it is too busy running all the electrical bits modern cars need. Most charge comes on braking or overrun (when you take foot off loud pedal, for any reason). I also do a low mileage, but do use the car most days, and with all the hills, I get plenty of downhill running and braking, so battery always well charged.
