Japanese SUV in terms of appearance is attractive, but its "shoals" can be costly for its owner.
On the Russian "secondary housing" Subaru XV crossover is a great success, but when you buy you need to know about the shortcomings of the car. Blogger Asafiev Stas revealed all the "diseases" of the used "Japanese."
Subaru XV with mileage and in the minimum configuration will cost the Russian from 800,000 rubles, and for more top-end versions of the Japanese crossover, you will have to pay about 2,000,000 rubles. "What's wrong" with a second-hand Subaru XV voiced the auto picker in detail. First of all, the blogger drew attention to the hard plastic on the front panel in the cabin of the Japanese crossover – the surveyor emphasizes that for almost 1,000,000 rubles one could expect something better. “Where is this million?”, – Asafiev indignant.
The paintwork of Subaru XV from the “secondary market” leaves much to be desired – the car body is quickly covered with red mushrooms, which is why it needs to be repainted. The hood of the Japanese crossover is also subject to corrosion, despite the installed rubber seals on the inside. One more minus of a used Japanese car blogger called fogging of headlights – after several years any subarist faces this problem. Also, the hard plastic covering the trunk lid rattles a lot when driving, which can also “strain” the driver.
The rear seats in the Subaru XV are rather uncomfortable and flat, causing discomfort to passengers. In addition, for the passengers of the second row is not provided no outlets, no heating or blowing. The engine on the Subaru XV has a capacity of 114 horsepower and is quite reliable, but there are often problems with the chain tensioner, because of which it eventually begins to emit rattle. Another problem of the Japanese crossover is the variator, which overheats during a long ride on the highway.
