Had my white pearl XV since 1/12 and have not been disappointed apart from expected standard features eg auto dim mirror, rain sensing wipers.
Love the CVT and not short on power for me unless down low. Beautiful ride and excellent economy (came down from a Forester XT Premium). Has a lot of B's and W's but lacks some that I'd use.
Have jazzed mine quite a lot with an interior trim kit, front and rear sensors and scuff guards, auto lights, running DRL's and floor pan lights. Exterior black moulding is now black pearl. Get a lot of good comments from people passing. Wifey is most happy driving the XV and is extremely happy driving and parking without effort.
Overall one of the best cars we've had. Certainly the best Subaru we had. We've had 5. Love this car.
