Great little car

I needed a high wheel base vehicle. I bought a demo model that had all the safety tech. It is a smooth ride, my dad loves it, even my Euro car fan beloved loves it. I would like a little better fuel efficiency and the Carplay only works intermittently but otherwise I really like this car. Never had anything so new and hi tech! Show details

Great car - no regrets buying it

Okay I am not a car buff so I just wanted a comfy car that is safe and useful.

This is our main car - but I have kept my old Jazz as second car. (The Jazz has a bigger boot though)

Love the car very much and the eyesight safety is brilliant. So safe and this made it very cheap it insure - less than $500 comprehensive.

Love all the features, but wish the boot was as big as the Jazz.

Cost wise it was amazing value really. So pleased we bought it.

2018 XV top of the range S Series,6K on the clock in 4weeks

Mountains, hills, freeway, off-road, dirt corrugated tracks, car parks, pancake flat irrigation country, city peak ,CBD ,snow, rain, hail, flood, mud ,rocks, sand, gravel, dust and the tar all across SE Australia.-Sweet! .No issues. Relaxed driving. What more can you ask of a vehicle and with a 5 year warranty!

5.9-6.6 Litre /100 k Country, 7.7-8.2 City, 4WD off road 8.5-9.

Great all around car. Not a race car by any stretch, but more than capable with 21st century ergonomics and safety.

Plesantly surprised

Excellent dynamics

Good performance once you get used to the cvt's linear characteristics

Bullet proof engineering and quality

It's got enough power if you rev the happily revving engine

Don't pay too much attention to the critics about the power output being too low

Comfy and quite ride

Only criticism is the sound system being below expectations.

Wendy · XV G5X 2.0i-S AWD (2017-2024)

My 2018 G5X 2.0i-S died. CVT and Diff - I was told it was because the mechanic had not refilled the front diff with oil. I drove 6000kms with no oil if that is the case. Is that even possible - day trips of up to 500kms over mountains at speeds of 110? There seems to be a lack of accountability around faulty CVTs in XVs in Australia. Repair bill almost $13000 in a two year old car...it is with Fair Trading...

It is being investigated by Fair Trading. Your Customer Service person would not escalate nor let me speak to his manager. He was sexist and ageist. Customer Service - poor.
