Paint is chipping in odd spots, is the paint ok?

I bought a brand new 2021 XV and had the car Permaguarded paint protected prior to collection in February (2022) this year, I have travelled just over 7,000 km. In the past few of weeks, tiny chips in the paint have started appearing, right down to the metal, the paint colour is Plasma Yellow Pearl. Is there anything wrong with the actual paint. The chips are high up on front passenger door and in middle of boot, the spots seem out of the way for flying stones to hit ….. Otherwise, the car is terrific! I use the car for Highway / street driving, it is off street, in a carport overnight. The car is used at least three times per week and has it’s regular service checks. Show details ·  3

Great car but Apple CarPlay connection is making me mad

It is my daily car to drive to work. Great car to drive but I have been frustrated with the Apple CarPlay which keeps cutting on and off on warm day. The worst time is the hot day in summer which it would take more than 15 minutes to connect to CarPlay. Talked to Subaru Service when I put my car in for service. Of course, no issue occurring during service and they reckoned that my USB cable was no good. I have tried many new cables and the problem doesn’t go away. Show details

Perfect car without a punch

Perfect for city drive and weekend getaway. But every time you stop in front of traffic light you’ll wish it’s a 2.5 or turbo version you can’t buy in Australia Show details ·  1

Extremely Impressed!

I had never owned a Subaru before and cannot be happier with my purchase, I'm so impressed! The price point is amazing for all the features. We test drove other makes and models with the same features we were looking for but they couldn't beat or even come close to the price of the XV. Love Love Love my Subaru!! Show details

Very Good BUT

Bought my XV my2018 as an EOFY special, chose Premium as best value. Organised some accessories to be fitted asap. Wind deflectors and door protectors brilliant, more on Rear Sensors later VIP.

The vehicle manual is huge but poorly organised, e.g. how to set up automatic dimming of central screen (Maps) at night.

The handling, brakes, comfort, upholstery, power (should have a turbo) have been mentioned by others.

BUT the Subaru aftermarket rear sensor sound alarm volume is hard to hear because the minute speaker is housed near the tail light on the passenger side. It is not effective as a warning device, seems the S model has a volume control, after-market installs do not.
