New XV in Upstate, NY
Hello everyone, just picked up my 15 XV Crosstrek Premium 5MT in Venetian Red on Saturday. Wasn't my first color choice, but was in my top three. Pickings were somewhat slim and wanted to avoid awaiting the allocation game and time for a factory order. Drove almost two hours into CT for the right deal. One of the best car buying experiences ever. Prior to my XV, my last three vehicles have been Jeeps. I test drove the XV last year before buying my last Jeep, but stayed with Jeep. However, with over 110 mile commute daily, I needed better fuel economy. I've loved the XV since they hit the market and finally took the plunge.
So far I love my XV. I am a bit concerned about NY winter driving and am considering snow/winter tires.
Would love to add HID lighting and a NAV head unit. Any suggestions on a NAV head unit? Is the wiring in place in the Premium to accommodate the oem NAV/Sattelite radio head unit?
Ordered RealTree X-Tra Camo design Wet Okole neoprene seat covers to protect the ivory interior from food, drink and the paws of three dogs. Weathertech floor liners will be on the way as well. Next on the list are front window tint, window vent guards and a hood protector/bug deflector...
Love the forum so far and looking forward to being an active participant.
