My wife's high heels will cause scratches that can be seen at a specific viewing angle. Without the running boards, I'd have to use a ladder all the way around the car just to wash and wax the top.

Approaching 5000 miles. Back-up camera had problems but was replaced. Middle seat belt lost tension and will get replaced soon. Other than those two issues, no real reliability problems.

I just spent a month in Singapore and returned to the Phoenix sun. Both are hot and unbearable without AC. For those who want to experience dry heat, stick your head inside your oven. Burns, huh?
