    Your 2015 xv costs more than a bnew celerio. That should tell you that you are in for a MAJOR DOWNGRADE if you do it.

    Yup! Agree that it will be a major downgrade.

    I currently live in a condo, so regardless of the size of the vehicle I have to rent an extra parking slot.

    Thanks bro!

    Thanks bro! Maintenance is quite on the high side, especially the timing belt replacement, but I was told that after that it’s relatively manageable.

    It’s an HRV.

    It’s standard issue and no going around it. I’ve tried those options but it’s a regional directive. Smh.

    That is, unless you will be getting another more economical vehicle. You did say you were already sourcing for a new car before the company offer. Perhaps the Celerio with your own funds and another vehicle availed c/o the company?

    Yup! Was initially planning to get a celerio using own funds until this option presented itself. Now, it gives me more flexibility to either just keep the existing one or sell it and buy a newer but cheaper one.

    Thanks for the reply bro!

    In terms of usage, my wife will be the one exclusively using it, so it’s still a daily driver. Now, living in a condo where parking slots are rented (I only own 1 slot), I can only afford 2 slots max (for practicality na rin) Hehe.

    Thanks bro!

    Thanks bro!
    Itís the CVTF change at 40k actual mileage which is going to be expensive but you can have it done outside the casa so that it will be cheaper. It will cost you around 9-10k outside.

    Since you are out of warranty already, you can have your PMS done in Subie-dedicated auto shops.

    I currently own a 2015 Subaru XV and it has been performing really well, no problems at all. Odemeter reads at 22k which is a bit low since I’m using it exclusively from home to office (to & from).

    Recently, I got a job offer which will include a company car (mine after 5 years) and covers gas, insurance & maintenance.

    The timing can’t be any better as I’m currently sourcing for a second car that my wife can use to take my 4 year old kid to school.

    I’m currently looking at the Suzuki Celerio CVT as a good alternative (easy to drive, FC & cheap). However, with the impending acceptance of the job offer I’m now torn. Should I retain my current ride so my wife can use it? Or should I sell it & buy the Celerio?

    My hesitation is keeping the XV is due to it’s high maintenance cost, almost 4 years old & a 2.0 engine, awd, which is not as fuel efficient as the smaller cars.

    So, should I keep the old one or buy a newer, cheaper one?

    Your expert advices are very much appreciated! Thanks in advance!
    Your utmost consideration in choosing a car for your wife and kid should be SAFETY

    And a Subie is among the best in the world in terms of auto safety.

    auto safety isn't cheap.
    i would probably keep the subie in lieu of purchasing another car.
    that is, until we get tired of maintaining it.

    hmmm... the Celerio is basically free... so if you keep the XV, only cost added is parking.

    And wife needs a car.
