Just got my 1st Subaru about a month ago and love the car. I ordered a new black XV premium with auto transmission. It really is a mix between the two cars I have always had, and SUV and a car that is good on gas. Its nice to have just 1 car instead of two. My wife drives it every day to work and I get to goof off with it when Im off work since I have a company van. She is getting 36mpg. So far I have installed the invisi-hitch, bug shield, weather tech floor mats, aero roof racks, J kayak racks, and xm radio. I had a 2007 Cadillac Escalade on 24" rims before I bought this car, never would even take it down a gravel road and hated it when it would even rain on it. Its nice having a car that I can take off road and down muddy trails and it not matter now. I love the xv so far. I had it down a muddy trail within 30 minutes of ownership.

Welcome, corey, thanks for signing up! I, too, am one of the rare Crystal Black Silica owners and I am loving it. Yours looks great and it seems you are really going to use it for what Subaru designed it for.

Again, thank you for joining the website, we're glad to have you here.

I REALLY wanted a black one. Then I remembered how hard it is to keep my dark blue impreza clean. Sliver never looks dirty, when you wash it it looks clean. :)


Same story about my car. My wife uses it to commute, I goof around with it other times. Diggin the gas mileage she's getting compared to the 5 speed 99 impreza she drove before this, which I drove before that. Wait, what? lol
