  1. Acceleration wobble ordeal finally solved: it's all about the dealership.

    Dealer Service Problems, Maintenance, Warranty, TS

    Hi, I've been driving my XV for more than two months now. I love it. Took the orange one, 5MT. I had a 2004 Impreza in the past, and after two years of complete lack of pleasure (I replaced my impreza with a Kia Rondo, what a mistake!), I feel home again :-) I can't wait for the first snow...
