    2018 XV 2.0i
  1. Hi For the first time, last week when it was about -3c, I could not open by boot. (Not the coldest it been out in either) The press button for the boot, felt frozen solid and after a few hours of driving, it loosen up but it still would not make that sound to say latch unlock. So I popped into my Subaru dealer (boot switch was now working) and had a quick word with a mechanic - solution, pour warm water over handle above latch to loosen electric switch up. Since Subaru XV 2018 models have no other way of releasing the boot; not via key fob and there no boot release handle inside either, this is big concern if that button breaks!

    Nice. When I purchased my XV, the only accessories they had at the time where for the Impreza & XV. Would have liked to got parking sensors as part of the deal, as rear camera get covered in dirt quite easily. Love the tyres 😊

    Can't believe Subaru wanted £60 to remove a few plugs and screw in a few bolts! Took about 30 minutes to do all four. NB: need to get car washed!!!
