Re: Freebies when picking up?

You only got $1k off and get 25mpg? You have some bad luck!

You must have done something bad in a previous life. Tsk, tsk....

Re: Freebies when picking up?

Get the 35. The 4 turbo is the wrong engine to order. You will not like it in the long run. Noisy, harsh under acceleration, and under powered for all that weight.

Tire drone will be most apparent under acceleration and not coasting. Does the drone appear when you are in the coasting mode and revving the motor? Probably not.
