Without commenting on the validity of this statement I haven't seen a lot of posts here about problems with the AWD system. IMO the reliability of the AWD system shouldn't be a concern.

The aftermarket "improve gas mileage" is a myth. If there were something the aftermarket guys could do to increase gas mileage you can bet the manufacturer would be doing it.
