+1. It is smooth. It is also really quick compared to the regular 8 AT. Agree about the paddles though, have only used them a couple of times.

Very succinctly put. Yesterday's storm made me question the RWD decision a bit, but to be honest even with an AWD. I would have stayed. I did make a quick run to the store during the lull, and did...
